I am hunting for infomration on the familes of John Bradford RING (m. Permilia Warner, in NY) moved from NY State to Sarpy Co., NE by 1870, then moved to Shelton- Buffalo Co. (?).John B. was a miller by trade.
His fifth child, Elsie, my ggd mother married Theodore A. MILLER, son of Jacob M. Miller of (? Gibbon or Kearney - Buffalo Co. or ??).
T.A. (or Theed, as he was also known), my ggd father, organized the first military unit, a BAND(!) from NE to join up for the Spanish-American war (Hastings, NE), had a large number of siblings (of whom we know nothing except names thereof), eventually moved, with wife Elsie, to South Bend, IN where he became General Manager of Studebaker electric Car Div., then moving to Detroit, where he was a V.P. of Studebaker.
BUT-the missing information from the above tales are both true unknowns.
Any information on either family is appreciated, and a marriage record for T.A. and Elsie (date Feb. 20, 1889 - reportedly in Kearney or Gibbon- but what church???) would be most welcome.
Data on siblings and their decendents also greatly desired.
