While I am not able to tell you too much about the orgin of the Ringstaff name, I am so happy to hear from you.....I have long worked on the Mills family line and the associated Ringstaff family. Matt's mother, Susan Mills was a sister to my anscestor, Missouri Arkansas Mills. I have a picture of one of Susan's brothers, A. F. Mills. I also believe I have a picture of her father, George W. Mills. I have some sketchy information on the Mills and Ringstaff families who traveled from Pulaski County Arkansas to Texas. The Mills familiy settled around Austin and came in 1851. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will try to share any information that you want, that I have. Do you know of anyone in the family that might have pictures or bible records that they would be willing to share? I have some old photos that came from my great grandmother but are not identified.
