I thought about this and I thought I could help. I found the following information on: genealogyintimemagazine.com It is a free site so just put it in google.com. I found the following under "Ramsey Family Tree 3: " Memories told of Sanford Ramsey". When you go to this site, just put in Joseph Robert Ramsey in the Family tree search engine. It will give you more info about the Ramsey's.
