Ring & Related Family History

NOTE:  the Sections below are mostly PDF's, and some of them are large in size and depending on the computer and your connection, they may take quite some time to open.  Be patient, they will open on most computers.

Ambrose Ely & Grace Harned Ring Family:

This history covers Ambrose Ely & Grace Harned Ring, Bob and Al's paternal grandfather and grandmother.  Their youngest son, Clinton E. Ring, Bob and Al's father, contributed much to this section, as did Steven C. Ring, Bob's youngest son.  A partial family tree in the information below is included to help you sort out Ring family members.  A word of caution:  much of the original material below is included the way it was written, complete with misspellings, spellings of the day, and/or infrequent slang, that some could interpret as offensive.
