Notes for A
Alburtis Ringo (Cornelius, Judge Philip, Albertus Philipszen, Philip Janszen) was born in Amwell, Hunterdon County, New Jersey 25 FEB 1763. Burtis died 7 NOV 1852 in Fleming County, Kentucky, at age 89.) His body was interred after 7 NOV 1852 at Ringo Family Graveyard in Belle Grove Springs, Kentucky.

He married Hannah Rector 23 FEB 1790 in Fauquier County, Virginia. Hannah was born 26 JAN 1771 in Fauquier County, Virginia. Hannah was the daughter of John Rector Jr. and Jane Grace Glasscock. Hannah died 29 JUL 1845 in Fleming County, Kentucky, at age 74. Her body was interred after 29 JUL 1845 at Ringo Family Graveyard in Belle Grove Springs, Kentucky. ALBURTIS (BURTIS) RINGO was born February 25, 1763 in Amwell Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. He was the second child of Cornelius Ringo and Margaret Switcher.

His parents lived in a house on an 18 acre tract located on the east side of the Trenton Road, just a few hundred yards south of Ringo's Old Tavern at the Crossroads in Amwell. In 1768 the parents, probably in company with Burtis' uncle Henry's family moved from New Jersey to Virginia. The Cornelius Ringo family is known to have been living on Goose Creek, Loudoun County, Virginia in 1770, when Burtis was 7 years old.

Burtis Ringo's parents continued to live at that location for an extended period of time, probably under a tenancy lease, which was very common in Virginia. Burtis must have grown up helping out around the farm, with a special interest in the farm animals. This part of Virginia was horse country then and it is now, and it was with horses that Burtis found the love of his life.

John, Burtis' older brother, was drafted into the Virginia Militia in early spring of 1779 and in October of the same year he volunteered for another two month tour of duty. This must have been too much for Burtis Ringo, who was obviously champing at the bit to get into the fighting. In late 1779 or early 1780 (probably the first part of December 1779) Burtis Ringo showed up at Richmond in Henrico County, well over 100 miles from Loudoun, where he enlisted in Captain William Armistead's company of Dragoons (cavalrymen) in Colonel Charles Dabney's Virginia Regiment.

Burtis Ringo would have been a few months short OF his 16th birthday, and family tradition has it that he ran away from home taking with his his father's best horse. He was to serve his country from then until shortly after peace was declared.

In 1780 with Cornwallis holding Savannah and Charleston, the South became the
major theater of war. The British with the help of the Loyalists and the Indians began to widen their offensive and to think in terms of an invasion of North Carolina and even of Virginia. Little is known of the service of Burtis Ringo during this year and while Virginia did send troops to the aid of the Americans in the Carolinas, cavalrymen seem to have been in short supply. It would appear that his time was spent in training and other activities in Virginia during this year.

By January 1781 a British force under Benedict Arnold had raided Hampton, Virginia and held Richmond for a short time. General Washington concluded the state needed help and sent Lafayette there with an expedition to take charge of the forces defending Virginia. In April the British captured Petersburg and with reinforcements marked again on Richmond, but Lafayette joined with the Virginians to reach there in the nick of time to protect it. In the meantime Cornwallis moved his men from Wilmington, North Carolina to Petersburg and a confrontation was in the making.

General Cornwallis with reinforcements received from New York marched northwest from Petersburg on May 24, 1781 hoping to engage Lafayette's men. He is alleged to have said, "the boy (Lafayette) cannot escape me," but the young French General retreated northward to position himself to receive additional troops from Washington.

While the Americans carefully avoided battle until their forces could be beefed up, the forces of Cornwallis destroyed Rebel supplies and their general, using his own excellent cavalrymen to the limit, sent Tarleton to raid Charlottesville where he nearly caught the Virginia Assembly in session, and Simcoe made another daring raid on the Point of Fork on the James River.

Lafayette's forces and particularly the Virginia Cavalry must have been terribly
frustrated at having to hold themselves in leash. A week later General Wayne marched into Lafayette's camp with 1,000 experienced soldiers. The Americans were still outnumbered but maneuvered themselves between the British camp at Elk Hill and the western part of Virginia. On June 15 Cornwallis broke camp and started back toward Richmond and Williamsburg. Lafayette was behind him at a safe distance, picking up support as he moved along.

Lafayette followed Cornwallis cautiously, still wary of bringing on a general
engagement but alert to any opportunity to strike at his rear guard. The chance came on June 26, 1781 at Spencer's Ordinary (tavern). Simcoe's Rangers guarding the British rear had gone into camp near there. Major William McPherson with 120 mounted troops, after an all night trip, caught up with Simcoe about six miles Northwest of Williamsburg.

At sunrise McPherson had mounted 50 light infantrymen double with 50 of the
Virginia dragoons and this detachment closed for a brief hand-to-hand action, while the other troops moved in. The fighting was confused and bloody. Simcoe fearing that this was an attack by a larger force, broke off the engagement and retreated toward the main camp. The British later reported 33 casualties, while the Americans lost 9 killed, 14 wounded and 14 missing. Among those taking part in the skirmish was Burtis Ringo, aged 18, who apparently escaped unscathed.

Cornwallis continued to slowly retreat toward the coast with the intentions of having English ships pick up his men at the proper time. In the meanwhile Washington had begun moving a large part of his army south toward Virginia, and the French Fleet had arrived off the coast, where they were in a position to give battle to the British Navy.

The next clash between the opposing forces was on July 6, 1781 near the Jamestown Crossing of the James River and has become known as the "Battle of Green Spring." Both Burtis and his brother, John Ringo, took part in it. Here Lafayette thought he had Cornwallis in a difficult position as he prepared to ferry his troops across the river, but the British had prepared a very strong rear guard anticipating just such a move.

Burtis Ringo and his fellow dragoons were attached to McPherson's light infantrymen and Virginia riflemen. The advanced against Tarleton's outposts in the center of the British defense, while General Wayne and his troops moved against their flank over swampy ground. Everything seemed to be going the American's way against what looked like a lightly held rear guard. Luckily Lafayette rode to a tongue of land on the river bank and was able to detect that the main body of the British were hidden near there. When they attacked Wayne with whom John Ringo's regiment was attached, Wayne counterattacked but Lafayette wisely withdrew his army rather than take heavier losses.

The Americans had 139 killed, missing and wounded; while the British had only 75 killed and wounded. Both the two Ringo brothers, Burtis and John, came through the fighting and apparently without any injury. It was clearly a win for Cornwallis but, the Americans had fought well and would do so another day.

Subsequently, General Washington's army joined that of Lafayette, and with the help of the French Navy, cornered Cornwallis and his entire army at Yorktown. The siege of the British position began on September 28th and went on for weeks with the ring being drawn tighter nearly daily. Burtis Ringo with the Virginia Dragoons and John Ringo with the Virginia Militia took their part in a huge drama, which wound down to the surrender of Cornwallis and all his men, on October 19, 1781. Although the allied forces took casualties of nearly 400 in the siege, again Burtis and John Ringo were not injured.

The next day Burtis and John Ringo were to witness spectacle which they would
remember the rest of their lives. In a broad field outside Yorktown before the massed units of America and France, over 8,000 British soldiers filed out to lay down their arms and become prisoners-of-war. Other than their wounded, only one Englishman was missing of the entire army. He was General Charles Cornwallis, who pled "illness."

Burtis Ringo and the regiment of horse to which he belonged were assigned to guard 750 of the prisoners to their destination in Winchester, Virginia. Happily for Burtis their route lay through Loudoun and the Goose Creek area, where his parent and sisters must have been on hand to see their hero ride by in his impressive uniform.

Thomas Jefferson had been Governor of Virginia when Burtis Ringo enlisted but, as the war came to the state there was a great need for a more energetic and practical person rather than a thinker and intellectual. This new Governor was Thomas Nelson Jr. of Yorktown. He had been a member of Congress and was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was the right man at the right time for Virginia. In addition to being Governor he also took over the command of the state's militia and put his personal fortune behind the effort to drive the British from Virginia. It is told that during the Siege he gave instructions to the American artillery to shell his own house in Yorktown, when told that the British were using it as their headquarters.

After the surrender of Cornwallis and before his retirement from office, Governor
Nelson sent to the commanding officer of the regiment to which Burtis Ringo belonged, asking that a Sergeant and six expert young men, who could be depended on, to ride express to convey letter of intelligence to different parts of the Union. Burtis Ringo, not yet 19, was one of those selected.

In January 1782 his group was moved to Petersburg, where under a new Governor Benjamin Harrison, they carried out their important work. Burtis Ringo later said of his new job, "Our duty was hard in the extreme. We were bound to be always ready either night or day to go on the business or with the express, and had to ride both day and night, wet or dry or cold, whenever called upon, which made our task very hard, disagreeable and Laborious."

Burtis became a Corporal of this group and after a few months the Sergeant in charge became dissatisfied and was allowed to return to his regiment. Ringo was made Sergeant and placed in command of the Governor's express riders. A provisional peace treaty was signed November 30, 1782 but the definitive one was not completed until September 3, 1783. There continued to be many reasons for rapid communications between the states as they tried to perfect the machinery of the new government. Congress finally ratified the Peace Treaty with Britain January 14, 1784 but, even then Governor Harrison requested that Ringo stay on with him for three extra months, for which he paid Burtis $20.00 per month. Burtis says, "He would have kept me longer but the business being hard and laborious and having served three years and four months with the regular army, I had become tired of the service and wished to return to the bosom of my Friends."

Burtis Ringo received his official discharge papers from military service at Richmond from Lieutenant Nathaniel Savage. Finally Burtis was headed back to his home in Loudoun County, a much older and wiser but still young man with an admirable service record, who in his duties as an express rider had traveled from one end of the country to the other. He was at the County Seat of Leesburg on December 29, 1785, where he attended the wedding of Joseph Powers and Sarah Taylor. Powers was an old friend and comrade-in-arms, who would later reminisce about the two boys swimming together in Goose Creek when they were children.

Apparently, after his return home, Burtis Ringo continued to live with his parents and his name is not shown in the Loudoun Tax Lists. Before long, however, he fell for a neighborhood girl, whose family lived just across the boundary line in Fauquier County. On February 22, 1790 Burtis and a friend, Joseph Jeffries Jr. came before the Fauquier Court, where they firmly bound themselves "unto his Excellency Beverly Randolph Esq. Governor of Virginia in the sum of fifty Pounds" in order to obtain a license for marriage. The next day, according to certification by her mother, Hannah Rector was married to Burtis Ringo. The groom was just two days short of his 27th birthday.

Hannah, the bride, was born January 26, 1771 and was the daughter of John Rector Jr. and Grace (Gracy) Glasscock. Her mother's family were a numerous and respected one of the area, probably of English extraction. Through her father Hannah was the great granddaughter of John Jacob Richtor, who had left Nassau-Seigen in the German state of Westphalia. His was one of 12 families, all Calvinists, who moved from there to England, from which they were brought to Virginia through the good offices of Lord Fairfax, a large landholder. They settled first in Spotsylvania County, where they were known as the Germanna Colony, but when their mining project there failed, Fairfax gave them land in Fauquier, where they laid out their own village of Germantown.

Hannah's father, John Rector Jr. had also sponsored a small community in Fauquier, which he planned to call Maidstone, but it later became known as Rectortown (it still is). He died when Hannah was only 5 years old and four years later her mother, Grace, married a widower, William Quaintance. They had several children and then William died, leaving Grace a widow again and Hannah, as the oldest daughter, the problem of helping to take care of them. Burtis Ringo, as Hannah's husband, Later became guardian of her younger sisters, Sarah and Ann.

In their first six years of marriage the young couple had five children. They were John Robert, their first born, Philip who died during this time at the age of l, Rachel, Lott Washington and Nancy Ringo. The Burtis Ringos made their home on the property of Hannah's father, whose estate had not been settled.

Burtis farmed and seemed to appear at the Fauquier Quarterly Court at Warrenton, the county seat, on a frequent basis. In 1791 he was paid 128 pounds of tobacco for acting as a witness for five days. The next year he filed suits against John Glasscock Jr. (probably a cousin by marriage) and against Hugh Chinn, and was awarded a judgment against each.

During 1793 and 1794 the Fauquier Court was involved in bringing the estate of John Rector Jr. to a conclusion. The case was decided and a division of his land made on June 23, 1794. Grace Quaintance received "the widow's third," including 20 acres, the house and part of the orchard, while "Bertice" Ringo and Hannah got 40 acres of adjoining land, which fronted on the road Ann Rector, by now married to Peter Lukins, inherited 57 acres and Sarah, still a minor (later married to John DeBell) was given 60 acres.

After their third daughter, Catherine B. Ringo, was born in February 1798 Burtis and Hannah apparently decided to move further west, where he could acquire a larger place. They subdivided their land into two pieces, which they sold to William Finch and Samual Evans. By the time the last deed had to be proved on March 27, 1799 the Ringos were living in Culpeper, the next county south west of Fauquier, and Hannah Ringo made her deposition there "because the said Hannah cannot conveniently travel" to the court at Warrenton.

At the same time the Burtis Ringos sold their own property back in Fauquier, they also conveyed their one-third interest in the land still owned by her mother, Gracy Quaintance. Their "undivided moiety" was put in the hands of Ludwell Rector, apparently a close relative of John Rector Jr. (This also explains the source of the very popular name, Ludwell R., which is to be found in several branches of the Ringo family.)

Burtis Ringo probably moved his family from Fauquier in the summer of 1798 since he is listed in the personal tax rolls of Culpeper in that year as owning one horse but no land. Within a few months, though, he had acquired 250 acres near the Thornton Gap Road, and had petitioned the county court to turn that road onto his land for his convenience.

By 1800 Burtis bought an additional 150 acres in this same area and two years later was dickering with the Trustees of the newly laid-out town of Woodville to buy 30 of its 72 lots. The village was located in that part of northwestern Culpeper (now Rappahannock) County, where a road toward the mountains ran west from the north-south one. (This was then the main road between Fredericksburg and what is now Luray, Virginia. The intersection was and is about 12 miles east of a gap through the Blue Ridge Mountains.)

(Woodville is a quaint example of the growing penchant of Americans of those days, to lay out ambitious plans for entirely new towns to which they hoped to lure new settlers at great profits to themselves. Each lot was precisely surveyed to be square and contain exactly a half acre. Its streets were appropriately named Locust, White Oak, Walnut, Chestnut, Maple and Apple. A purchase of a lot required the buyer to build a house within seven years, which must have a good chimney.)

While Burtis kept his land outside Woodville, in 1804 he built a residence on Lot No. 68 on Cherry Street and moved his family there. During his eight year stay here the number of horses and cattle upon which he was taxed, grew steadily as did his family. Their new children born in Culpeper County, Virginia were Sarah D., Mary W., and twins, Margaret S. and Ludwell Rector Ringo.

By 1805 when Burtis Ringo made his decision to go to Kentucky all of the other Ringo men were there, except for his first cousin, John Ringo, then living in Georgia. Some twenty years earlier Burtis had received a military grant to 200 acres in Kentucky and so when the year 1806 rolled around he began to make some moves preliminary to leaving Culpeper. On April 12th he bought another negro slave, Peter, aged about 22, to help out with the proposed trip. Six days later Burtis sold 230 acres adjoining the town of Woodville, and 10 lots in it.

As soon as the worst spring rains were over Burtis Ringo must have left Culpeper heading west apparently on the Thornton Gap Road. They must have traveled overland as their final destination on Stockton Branch of Fox Creek in Fleming County, Kentucky was on what was known as the Virginia Road, which settlers later used to journey to the Big Sandy River, which formed the new boundary with the mother state. They must have been a large party, composed as they were, of family, relatives, slaves, household goods, furniture, horses, cattle, and according to family tradition, some English hunting dogs.

Burtis Ringo and his entourage must have arrived at their new home by midsummer in plenty of time to build shelter for the coming winter. On August 11, 1806 Burtis Bingo took his quill in hand and wrote from what he spelled as "Flemmen County, Kentucky" to Moses Rittenhouse Jr. of New Jersey, his uncle Albartes Ringo's stepson. It was five days later when he carried it to "Fleming C.H.," where he was charged 25 cents postage.

His letter addressed to "Dear Cousin" said in part, "I embrace this opportunity of
informing you that we are all well, thanks be to God for it. Hoping these lines may find you and all your family and my Aunt Ringo in the same state of health." Burtis explained that since he had arrived in Kentucky, he had been to see his father (who lived in Nelson County, well over 100 miles away) and visited with his first cousins, whose father, Henry Ringo, had been dead three years. (These Ringos, Peter, Cornelius, Major, Samuel and Joseph, lived on Hingston Creek in Montgomery County less than 25 miles away.)

Burtis Ringo got powers-of-attorney from all who were involved and notified
Rittenhouse that he planned to be in New Jersey about November 1, 1806 to settle the estates of his uncles, John and Albartes. To do this he must have ridden by horseback and left shortly to return to the old family home in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.

He arrived at Trenton only to find that Moses Rittenhouse had died since he last heard from him; and it must have been with some difficulty that he was able to settle the two estates, one of which had been pending since 1779. It would seem likely that he tried to comfort his aunt Mary, widow of Albartes Ringo, visited his grave at the Presbyterian Church at Mount Airy, gone An to the Crossroads, where he could see the house in which he was born a short distance south of the famous Ringo's Old Tavern, and finally gone to the family graveyard to say a prayer for his grandparents, Philip and Jane, and his two uncles, Peter and John Ringo, who lay there.

Burtis Ringo left the Crossroads in Amwell carrying the estate settlements for his father and his uncle Henry's sons. In addition he had his own bequests left him by Albartes Ringo, "15 Pounds current money, silver buttons and buckles for his stock and shoes," and most importantly a "Dutch Bible and Testament with silver clasps."

By 1807 he was back in Fox Valley in Kentucky, probably in time for the birth of their last son, Albert G. Ringo, Burtis and Hannah later had two more children, Grace Quaintance Ringo and Susan Peck Ringo. Their last child was born just a few months before the War of 1812 broke out.

The two oldest sons of Burtis Ringo both saw service during that war. John Robert was the first to enlist on August 27, 1812 as 2nd Sergeant in Captain George Matthew's Company of Pogue's Regiment of the Kentucky Militia. He served a six month enlistment with them and then went into the regular army, where he was a Supply Sergeant for the company of Captain Joseph C. Belt in the 28th Regiment of the U.S. Infantry, commanded by Colonel Thomas Deye Owings with whom he served until his discharge on April 30, 1814.

Burtis' second son, Lott Washington Ringo, enlisted as a private on April 9, 1813 in Captain Thomas Evans' Company, Boswell's Regiment of the Kentucky Detached Militia. In 1814 he served as a Sergeant in the company of Captain David Gooding in the Kentucky Volunteer Militia commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Porter. In between terms he spent three months with Major Andrew Jackson in a campaign against the Creek Indians in the South. His military service and the hardships associated with it must have had a bearing on his early death at the age of 30.

After the War Burtis Ringo concentrated on the development of his property in Fleming County. His place was on a well traveled road through an area where game was plentiful. His land was well watered and in addition had sulphurous springs on it. There he built a two-story building of native reddish stone with porches around the whole of it. He called his place "Belle Grove Springs," and again picking up an old family trade, Burtis was soon operating a combination tavern, hotel, spa and hunting lodge, which became well known in Eastern Kentucky.

By 1819 Burtis Ringo had become a large landowner in the county, and been made a Justice of the Peace. As such he was a part of the Fleming Court and took a great interest in politics, which ultimately brought him the office of Sheriff.

His lifelong interests were in land and horses, not necessarily in that order. He was an inveterate horse trader and he covered the county astride his favorite steed. In 1822 and the following year he was given three Kentucky Land Warrants totaling 700 acres in Fox Valley and later he became one of Kentucky's Land Commissioners. As the county opened up he was involved in many things. Burtis was an investor in the Licking River-Big Sandy Turnpike, which ran by his door, and at one time had one of the tollgates near his inn. He helped Henry Ringo (lD2BlF), one of his orphaned cousins, to acquire land in Fleming, where Henry built "Ringo's Mills."

Burtis Ringo was a man of great determination, and always sure of the justice of his cause. In a land case where a dispute existed, he would not accept the decision of the lower court and eventually carried the matter before the Supreme Court of the United States before losing his suit.

Long before the government of the United States got around to giving pensions to
Revolutionary War veterans, Burtis initiated a series of skirmishes with the "foe" to obtain what he considered to be proper recompense for the length and hardship of his own service to his country. At the 19th Congress of the United States in 1826 his petition was presented, asking for payment for a horse lost during service and other compensation. It was tabled by the House of Representatives, as were additional ones filed in 1830 and 1831. A letter from him to Richard Rush, Secretary of the Treasury, failed to generate any results.

It is doubtful that Burtis Ringo's campaign was any factor but, on June 7, 1832
Congress passed an act, which authorized pension payments to Revolutionary War veterans still alive. On August 9, 1832 Burtis, then 70, appeared personally before the Fleming Court to make a statement of his service. In 1833 he was given a pension of $100.00 a year based only on his service under Colonel Dabney in the Virginia Line.

In early 1850 Burtis made his final effort to get the treatment he thought he should have been accorded. He fired off letters to J. H. Rhorer and the Honorable B. H. Stanton in Washington. Apparently feeling that this was achieving nothing, Burtis Ringo, then 83 years of age, left Kentucky to travel to the nation's capital. There he did no better, finding new problems rather than solving old. In July his son, John Robert Ringo, received a letter from a banker there saying that he was writing at the request of "your father," who was then in the office in 'Washington City." Burtis Ringo had lost his pocketbook with $50.00 in it and wished his son to send him a draft in that amount. Burtis suggested that if this was not convenient to John, he should "sell the dark bay horse at the best price you can get for him."

Burtis Ringo had sold his property at Belle Grove Springs in 1841 and the Inn was now in the possession of William Phillips. He and Hannah must have moved to the village of Poplar Plains, but by January 1845 his son, John, reported his father had "by accident been rendered unable to go about to do his own business." On July 29, 1845 Burtis' wife of 55 years died and was buried at the Ringo Family graveyard at Belle Grove Springs. Burtis moved in with his oldest son's family at their place on the Mount Carmel Pike east of Flemingsburg, the county seat.

As early as 1830 some of the children of Burtis and Hannah Ringo, now grown, married and with families of their own, had begun to leave Kentucky. Ohio and Indiana were, at first, the new destinations but later Iowa and particularly Missouri gained in popularity. By the time Burtis was in his late sixties, he had gotten into the habit of visiting them in their new homes. This he continued to do, one year spending the entire winter in Missouri. When he left Washington, after his fruitless trip there in 1850, he went to Baltimore (and probably New Jersey) planning to return home "by way of the Lakes" (the Great Lakes) after visiting in Indiana and Missouri.

Burtis Ringo died November, 1852 at his son John's house in Fleming County,
Kentucky. He was only a few months short of being 90 years old. Family tradition says that Burtis "had, not too long before his death, taken a long, hard horseback ride in weather, which was at best inclement." He was buried beside his wife in the little cemetery at Belle Grove Springs. Others known to have been buried there were a son Albert, a daughter Gracy, a grandson, Melville B. Lewis, and his mother-in-law, Grace Glasscock Rector Quaintance.

(In July 1978 a first-ever family reunion of the descendants of Burtis Ringo ahd
Hannah Rector was held in Morehead, Kentucky to mark the transfer of the remains of the Ringo Family graveyard from Belle Grove Springs to the Ringo family plot in the Fleming County Cemetery at Flemingsburg, Kentucky. The next day amidst a summer rainstorm a bronze plaque was unveiled, which told the story of Alburtis "Burtis" Ringo, Revolutionary War Soldier. The local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution conducted customary ceremonies.
