Seeking family ties to Thomas B. Ryan born 1825 Rhea, Tenn. son of Abner Ryan and Rebecca Brown. Came from Tenn. around 1840 and lived in the Polk County and Johnson County areas. 1870 census Thomas and children are in Robberson, Greene MO. Wife Sarah (Sallie Hanes) has died after 1867 and before 1870.Children are Abner, Lina, Amanda,Thomas,Rome,Sarah and Mary. Lina married William Little and her sister Mary is living with them in 1880. My grandfather Rome Ryan married Mary Catherine Morrow 1888 in Nevada, Mo. I believe that my great grandfather Thomas B. may have married a Martha Foster 1872 in Nevada, Vernon Missouri. Hope you have ties to my Kentucky Ryan Family.
