I am researching the following who settled in Gibbon, Buffalo co., NE (mostly, I think)in the late 1800's:
John Bradford RING b 5 May, 1825, Wyoming Co. NY, d. 13 Jan, 1912 Java, NY
m 6 Sept, 1848 Permilia P. WARNER, b. 5 Jun 1826, Wales, NY, d. 12 Apr, 1896, Gibbon NE buried Riverside Cen. , Gibbon NE
John B. RING was a Gibbon hardware dealer, and also Postmaster there for a few years. After Permilia's d., he remarried, then eventually returned to Western NY for his final years.
Arthur F. RING b. abt 1850, NY
Charles A. RING, b. 1852, NY
George Ring, b. abt 1854, NY
Susan M. RING, b. abt 1857, NY, m. 1 Mar, 1883 Buffalo Co., NE , Darwin C Walker, b. abt 1853, IN
Elsie Amelia RING, b. 1867, NY, d. 1939, Detroit, MI,
m. 20 Feb, 1889, (either Kearney or Gibbon), NE, Theodore Anderson (T.A. or Theed) MILLER, b. 25 Dec. 1864, Martinsville, IN, (son of Jacob M. MILLER and Ellen ___) d. 12 Apr., 1942.
By the time of the Spanish-American War, T.A. appears to have removed to Hastings, NE where he raised the first NE unit to volunteer for that War- the Hastings Military Band (a BAND!?! - See the Adams Co. GenWeb site for confirmation) T.A.'s siblings: Frank, Lydia, Newlin, George, Lee, Ella, Anna, Myrtle.
Their children: Hazel Olive MILLER, b. 24 Mar., 1891, Kearney, NE, d. 1958, Detroit, MI (Hazel is my Grandmother)
Burnice Gertrude MILLER, b. 18 Apr. 1894 (maybe Kearney, but probably Hastings), NE, d. 17 Apr., 1965, Detroit, MI.
Permilia's sister, Mary R. WARNER, b. 25 Feb., 1828, Wales, NY,
m. 23 Nov., 1853, Chicago, IL, Henry COOK, b. 4 Apr., 1824, d. 20 Feb, 1892, Gibbon, NE
Their children: all but the first 2 b. Clinton, WI Hattie B. COOK, b., 1 May, 1855, Marengo, IL Frank H. COOK, 5 Oct. 1856, Sycamore, IL Daisie H. COOK, b. 30 Mar, 1858 George F. COOK, b. 12 Apr., 1860 Irva COOK, 7 Jan, 1862, Fred S, COOK, b.12 Mar., 1865, Ray R. COOK, b. 7 Apr, 1868, Atto. B. COOK, b. 17 Apr, 1870, May E. COOK, b. 1 Jan, 1873
Have extensive history of WARNER but know almost nothing of RING or MILLER ancestors or whstever happened to COOK descendants.
Have copy of Gibbon Reporter of Apr. 16, 1942 with extensive obituary of T.A. MILLER, also his brother, George W. MILLER is found with mention of their mother in the WWI veterans pages on Bufgfalo Cty NE Genweb website.
Any new information appreciated, and will share what I do have including photos of people and houses in (Gibbon?)with anyone interested.
