I have no idea if my RALPH family connects to your, but this was my ancestor:
My ancestor, John RALPH, born about 1743, was from Yorkshire, England,
He removed to Charleston, South Carolina, where he worked as a cabinet maker / furniture maker. He died there of yellow fever in 1801.
His first wife Ann, was the mother of his children. She died in 1792 and he subsequently married Jane.
The children of John RALPH and Ann were:
1) Tamson RALPH married John ADDISON in 1784 in Charleston, South Carolina, USA 2) Mary RALPH married William RICHARDS in 1787 3) Margaret ADDISON RALPH married Thomas HAM in 1791 4) a son (nothing further known.
From SIAU/ADDISON Family Bible: Ann Ralph Poyas, niece of Tamson [Ralph] ADDISON departed this live 13 August 1814.
Perhaps that Ann was a daughter of John RALPH's unknown son, i.e. Ann (RALPH) POYAS.
A section of the publication entitled "Charleston Furniture, 1700-1825" gives a good overview of John RALPH and his life in South Carolina.
I would like to learn more of other descendants of John RALPH. I would like to have more information about both of his wives, and I would like to learn something of his ancestry in England.
