Trying to find out if Alexander & Wife Anne/Anna Ralston are buried in Bartholomew co... think I found them listed in 1850 census Bartholomew Inda roll 136, Clay twp, p. 406, as Alexander Rulston age 58,(b. abt 1792-94) a farmer b. VA & Anna 65 (abt 1785) in Ireland, sons Alexander & Joseph b. in VA. - A land deed in 1845 in Brooke Co VA said Alexander & his wife Anne Atkinson Ralston were living in Bartholomew co Ind with children, James Marsh & wife Sarah Ann, James Atkinson & Jane his wife, William Atkinson & Salvina his wife, George Atkinson & Rebecca his wife, Robert Adams & Eliza Jane his wife, Thomas Atkinson & Margaret E. his wife all heirs of Thomas Atkinson deceased. There were 2 of her sons in Brooke, Isaac & John. Thomas Atkinson was Anne first husband. We think Isaac went to Kansas with a Wilson Ralston.
