i've been chasing down my wife's roots, but i just got a book from my dad that he printed last year "Ramsden Families of Northwest Iowa" and thought i would check for a ramsden forum...and came across your note. chapter 4 of his book is titled "Frederick Elmer Ramsden" and chapter 5 is "Frederick Ramsden Families." some brief info:fred's parents were Samuel and Esther Ramsden.fred was born Sep 28, 1870 (Cherokee Co, IA) 3 years after Sam & Esther came to that county.fred married Elnora Augusta Hay and they had 3 kids. i'm not sure exactly what info you want, but i'm sure my dad would have a good deal of info on this family. Unfortunately my dad isn't on line, but i can give you his address: A H Jeffers 8795 Joel Ct SE Salem, OR 97301if you want a to contact him more quickly you may email me & i'll try to get you together.
