My name is Becky Ramsey and I am searching for the descendants of James Alexander RAMSEY. James Alexander Ramsey was born in 1858 in Mercer County, Pennsylvania, the son of Isaac Ramsey and Barbara Keener. On Dec 24, 1878 in Campbellsville, Kentucky, he married Sarah Alice SANDERS, the daughter of Elijah Sanders and Mary Durham. They had seven children: (1) Isaac T. Ramsey (1880-1883), (2) James Edd Ramsey (b. 1882), (3) Charlie E. Ramsey (1884-1971), (4) George W. Ramsey (1887-1957), (5) Mary Barbara Ramsey (1890-1963), (6) Asa Ramsey (1893-1922) and Leslie Harry Ramsey (1896-1981). Sarah Sanders Ramsey died in September of 1900 in Campbellsville, Kentucky and James remarried in January of 1901 to Edith Mabel MCALPINE. They had six children:

Between 1903 and 1905, James and Edith, along with all his children, moved to Missouri. Between 1910 and 1916, they moved to Arkansas where his youngest son was born. James died on August 8, 1922 in Marshall, Searcy County, Arkansas and is buried there. I would like to know which cemetery he is buried in and which newspaper was most likely to publish his obituary??? I would also like to make contact with a descendant from one of his first children, whose mother was Sarah Sanders. I have quite of bit of ancestoral information to share, but very little descendant information.
