I am looking for James S Ramsey's parents, he was b. 1843 in PA.

+1 vote
James S. Ramsey's dad is from Scotland and his mom is from Ireland. James married Louisa. I am unsure of her last name it was different the 2 times I found it. I have been unable to trace it. I think it could be Strong. She was born 1846 in Ohio. I think her dad is from Pennsylvania and her mom is from Maryland. I haven't been able to find a marriage certificate. Their children are Walter Allen b. Jan 14, 1871 in Iowa d. Feb 23, 1927 in Chicago, IL. Charlotte Rhodes (Masters) b Nov 10, 1872 in Ohio d. Dec 24, 1959 in Joliet, IL (This is where I found most of Louisa's information because when James died, she lived with Charlotte). Andrew Griffin b April 1, 1875 Chicago, IL d. April 22, 1942 IL. Lilian b. May 30, 1879 Chicago, IL d. July 17, 1931 Chicago, IL. Everything I have found was from Ancestry.com. Thank you for all your help.
