In yesterdays Portland Press Herald www.pressherald.mainetoday.com/news/york/060327ap.shtml, Wilson Ring an AP reporter had an aricle called "Man's quest for family history uncovers some startling tales". It is a very good story of Joseph Ring and his family. Joseph may be my 8th g-grandfather,I know that Seth is my 7th, however it has been rumored that Seth was adopted by Joseph after his wife had been taken by Indians and returned home with an infant. I believe that Seth was called the hero of Breakfast Hill( Rye, NH) because he warned the troops about the Indian attack.
I would love to know more about any of these stories.
