MERCY, MERCY, I had spent considerable time composing a message, and it disappeared. I read your family history with great interest. I, too, am looking for information on the RAMSDEN's, namely MARY ANN HAIGH (1834-1909). She had married a Mr. RAMSDEN, before marrying JOHN WHEELWRIGHT SYKES (1836-1909). In the 1881 census, they lived in Batley. RUTH RAMSDEN is listed among the residents as is my grandfather EZRA SYKES, et al. My search is to determine the full name of MR. RAMSDEN, along with any other pertinent dates (B.M.D.) that I might find on him as well as RUTH with birthplace shown as Hanging Heaton (in Dewsbury), plus any information on her.
Did your research come across these names?? Any information will be appreciated. Clinton Sykes, Lufkin, Texas, USA
