I am researching Martin Ring (possibly Ringer) of Bucks and Northampton Counties, Pennsylvania, who is found there during the 1760s (and probably earlier) before he moved to North Carolina and Virginia during the 1770s. He died in Virginia in 1811.
Martin may have been born in Europe or America, probably between the 1720s and the 1740s -- and no later than 1748, as he had a son (Michael) born in 1768. Martin Ring's name may originally have been Ringel or Ringle, as it appears this way in some early records.
My focus at this point is Martin Ring's father, who might even have been listed in some records as Rinck, Rinks, Rinkler, or something similar; I do not know this man's given name(s). He probably was among the Palatines who arrived during the first half of the 1700s, but I have only guesses as to the father's identity.
What I am hoping is that someone subscribed to this list will have a male Ringer (or a sound-alike similar to those above) with a son named Martin, which will enable us to connect the father and son. I can offer considerable information about the later Ring family, including that of Michael Ring in Kentucky and Indiana, along with my very great appreciation for any assistance.
