The Ives family bible dates back to 1863. It was started by GK (Governuer Kimball) Ives, private in the Minn 9th Co H and his wife, Mary Etta Neil Reese (widow of Stanley Reese, also Minn 9th Co H---died at the Confederate prison Florence, South Carolina.)The bible has family records, periodically updated since then.
One early entry says: Govenuer Kimball Ives was the son of Franklin Alexander Ives born in England and immigrated in the early 1800, and married Betsy Ragan of Penn. Who had 2 brothers who served in the Revolutionary War of 1812.
Can you give me any assistance on finding more details on Betsy Ragan?
