QRYTEXT: I am searching for the parents of my ggmother Minerva Jane Ingram B: Ky. 1835. I found her in the 1880 Boone Cty. census with her husband William Ramsey and her children. I have reason to believe they left Ky at the start of the civil war and came to Randolph Cty. Ar. My reason for this is a story that has been passed down through the faimly for years I first heard it as a small child. The story goes that during the civil war they lived in this house with a trap door under the table. When the yanks came they went into the tunnel beneath the table. The men folks used it to get away from the yanks and it ran about a quarter of a mile from the house to the woods. One day my mother says her grandmother Minerva Jane and her mother were at home and they heard shooting. Minerva looked out the window and saw the yanks shooting at someone. After a while the yanks left and they came out of the cellar and went to look to see if they could find an injured man. they did his name was William Ramsey and he was shot in the jaw. I have Williams civil war papers and he was shot in the jaw. SHe also told stories about Uncle Bill or Bob I can't remember which he was blind Years later I read the same story in book the History of Randolph Cty. I have searched the census records for Randolph cty but can't find them there they may have come after the census taker came in 1860. Please if someone lives in Randolph cty. I need help I have searched for three years with out luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Ruby
