I received your message about the Merrill volume related to the Ring's of New England. Actually, as it turns out I do not have a copy of that book, nor do I know how you could locate one. I was mistaken when I posted my earlier message to a cousin on this site. Actually, I have a very condensed version of Mr. Merrill's book which pertains to only Robert Ring and my exact ancestral tree.
You may be aware, but two of the sons of Robert Ring actually testified at the Salem Witch Trials and as a result a Susanna Martin was condemned to death. One of them was ultimately burned at the stake by indians, as he was a member of the Massachusetts Militia. You can find their testimony by doing a web search.
I have actually written a few books, though they are unpublished. I'd be glad to share them with you by email, if you're interested, and if you'll send me your email adddress. (Also, are you on facebook?)
