I am a descendant of Richard Ringgold, b ca 1780 in Maryland of Jacob Ringgold, M.D.Richard Ringgold migrated via S.C. to Butler County, Alabama, arriving ca 1819. His son Jamew Wright Ringgold is my ancestor. It is thought that Richard had a daughter also born in S.C. named Mary, but proving that has been elusive. I know that Ms. Mary Coleman Stewart of Montgomery, Ala. is most interested in Richard's alleged daughter Mary Ringgold. Are you aware of Ms. Stewart? If not I think you and she should communicate.My own interest is in James Wright Ringgold's wife Susan Anne Gardiner Ringgold (later Dashiell also). I am seeking info on her parentage which might be in family papers or bible in possesion of one of his/her descendants in Texas.
Will be happy to share info on Ringgold family in Maryland, Alabama and Texas.
