Searching for any information on George Ringer, Jacob N. Ringer, and other Ringers who lived in Shenandoah Co., Va. following the Revolutionary War and until around 1840. From there, family migrated to Preston Co., W. Va. and then to Guernsey, Noble, and Ross Co., Ohio. George, according to family lore, came to this country as a boy with his parents (names unknown) and fought in the Revolutionary War. Little else is known about George. His son Jacob N. is my direct ancestor, and I have good information from that generation on and would be willing to share. Any help in finding more about George would be appreciated.
be appreciated.

Although I don't have any information on a George Ringer from Shenandoah, my grandfather's name was Charles Victor Ringer. He lived in Preston County where he married and raised his children. My grandmother, Catherine Ringer is still living, she is 98.

I would greatly appreciate any information on the Ringer family that you might be willing to share.

Daniel Warrick Burruss, II has written "The Rinkers of Virginia, Their Neighbors & Kin and the Shenandoah Valley." Published in 1993 by Commercial Press, Stephens City, VA 22655 and I believe still available through the Shenandoah County Library Store, 300 Stoney Drive, Edinburg, VA 22824. Chapter 5 of the book is about George Rinker, born in 1751 in Lancaster, PA, lived in Shenandoah County until early 1800s when he moved to Greene Co, TN and from there to Union County, IN where he died in 1835.

To save future viewers time, the prior message reported that Daniel Burruss' book, "The Rinkers of Virginia, Their Neighbors and Kin . . ." might be available at the Shenandoah County Library Store, which does not exist. Zachary Hottel, employee at the library, said that they don't have a library store and suggested that someone may have meant the Shenandoah County Historical Society [?Association?], which does sell some items, 540-459-1795. I have the book, and have enjoyed it for about 2 decades. It has lots of information helpful for genealogists as well as history lovers. I am hoping to buy another copy. Mine is cluttered with many notations from my family genealogy searches.
