Fred, I have some info about Mordecai's residence before he moved to Henry Co KY. Don't know whether I have given it to you before or not. On 10 June 1780 he signed a petition at Boones Station. 17 July 1792 he signed a marriage bond for daughter Sarah and Cornelius Ringo in Bourbon Co KY. Tax records show Mordecai in Fayette Co KY in 1790. In 1800 there were two Mordecai Morgans living in Clark Co KY (probably Mordecai Jr. ). In 1810 Mordecai Morgan JR. was living in Clark Co KY and Mordecai Sr. in Henry Co

There is some dispute as to whether Mordecai Morgan was married to Martha Preston or Martha Linn. I believe, but unable to establish at this time, that he as married to both. He was born 1753 Frederick County, VA and died 1813 Henry County, KY. Dtr Sarah b. 1774 d. August 18, 1843 Henry County, KY and buried Sulphur Fork Baptist Church. Other children of Mordecai William b.1776 d. 1856; Nancy; Mordecai Jr, married Catherine Turner; John Morgan married Sarah Hanley March 10, 1796 Clark County, KY; Rachel; Preston married Rhoda Chinn 1850 Census shows living Clay County IN. Note: Other Ringo and Morgan family members moved to this area of Indiana. Good souce of information. I am descended from Mordecai Sr. thru William Morgan and Rachel Feemster. Have additional info if you desire. Would be willing to share.

Here follows a PROPOSED outline of the children of Edward Ransdell and Mary:
[Note that William of Fauquier and Wharton of Fauquier had a great many children with identical names. It is very difficult to determine which belongs to which father in a number of cases.]

c. Wharton Ransdell, m. by 3 Dec. 1744, Margaret Barrow, daughter of Edward Barrow and Elizabeth Minor (dau. of Nicholas Minor, d. 1744, Westmoreland Co.). His will is in Fauquier Co. Will Book 2, pp. 92-93, wr. 27 Jan. 1786, pr. 26 June 1786. (For marriage of Margaret and her ancestry, see pp. 166 and 11, Marriages of Richmond County, Virginia, 1668-1853, compiled and published by George H.S. King, Fredericksburg, 1964, and p. 170, Fauquier County, Virginia Wills, Inventories and Accounts, 1759-1800, compiled and published by John K. Gott, 1976, henceforth cited as Gott, Wills.) King cannot give a specific date of marriage, but refers to documents, including Richmond Co. Account Book 1, p. 209, that show that they were already married by 3 Dec. 1744. The children are listed here, following as closely as possibly the order in Wharton's will, which seems NOT to be an indication of their order of birth. This Wharton and his brother William below both had children named William, Sarah, Thomas, Elizabeth, Edward, and Wharton. It is, therefore very risky to make a hard and fast assignment of the people by these names to one or the other of the fathers, so the researcher should realize that I do not commit myself to my speculations regarding Ransdells of that generation by those identical names. The Elizabeth who married Cadwallader Slaughter is an exception. She is clearly the daughter of Wharton, as indicated by Wharton's will. The same is true of William's daughter Sarah. She is the one who married Nathaniel Gray. The greatest problems are with distinguishing the Thomases and Williams. A thorough search of Fauquier Co. records might resolve some of the questions. Some available Ransdell documents in Fauquier Co. are listed in pages 289 and 290 of Fauquier Families, 1759-1799, John P. Alcock, Iberian Publishing Co., Athens, Ga., 1994. However, Alcock seems not to have listed all essential Ransdell documents in Fauquier records. This is probably the Wharton who was called Capt. Wharton Ransdell in the inventory of his estate in Fauquier Will Book 2, p. 118, taken on 14 Sept. 1786 and returned 25 June 1787 by Ambrose Barnett, James Hathaway, and George Carter, who gave an appraisal of 891.8.11 (Gott, Wills, p. 178).
(1) William Ransdell. See comments here under his brother Thomas. See also Thomas, son of William and Mary Chilton.
(2) Ann Ransdell, m. 14 June 1779, Fauquier Co., Va., Turner Morehead. Their children can be found in the Morehead work cited below after Presley Ransdell.
(3) Margaret Ransdell
(4) Sarah Ransdell
(5) Thomas Ransdell Possibly the one called "Sr." See Thomas Ransdell below, son of William Ransdell and Mary Chilton. It is not yet clear which of these is the one called Thomas Ransdell and which Thomas Ransdell Jr. Schreiner-Yantis's transcription of the Fauquier Co. personal property tax list of 1787 contains two Thomas Ransdells, one identified as "Sr." The other Thomas is the responsibility of William Ransdell, probably a brother. At present it is not possible to determine whether these two are the sons of Wharton or of William (and Mary Chilton). If dates of listing in that census are significant, these two seem to be living close to some of the Moreheads. Wharton Ransdell (m. Margaret Barrow) appears to be older than his brother William, so it is possible that his son Thomas was born before William's son Thomas. If that is the case, then the Thomas Sr. in 1787 is probably Wharton's son, while the William and Thomas listed together are probably sons of William Ransdell and Mary Chilton. Thomas may have died ca. Oct. 1793 (see p. 290 of the above-mentioned Fauquier Families, John P. Alcock) when his estate was administered by William Ball, but see his cousin Thomas below. The inventory of the estate administered by William Ball is in Will Book 2, p. 320, dated 8 Jan. 1794, taken by David McNish, William Hunton Jr., Thomas Hunton and Daniel Gray (Gott, Wills, p. 233). The estate was appraised at 237.7.9.
(6) Elizabeth Ransdell, b. 6 Apr. 1746, Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Va., m. 17 Dec. 1762, Fauquier Co., Va., Cadwallader Slaughter. Elizabeth's and the two other birth dates of Wharton's children are from p. 99, The Register of Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia, 1723-1758, comp. and publ. by George H.S. King, Fredericksburg, 1961. Cadwallader and Elizabeth moved to Jefferson Co., Ky.
(7) Edward Ransdell, b. 10 June 1748, Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Va.
(8) John Ransdell m. Elizabeth Chinn and moved to Kentucky. [Her identity was given me by William K. Ransdell, Louisville, Ky., in doing so, contradicting the opinions of those who say she was Elizabeth Moore. See his typescript history of his branch of the Ransdells Sifted From the Ashes, published 1988, in the holdings of the library of the Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort.] The following remnants of a will from Fayette Co., Ky. burnt records may be applicable. Fayette Co. Burnt Records, vol. 6, pp. 100-101, 179_, Will of ..... Ransdell to wife Elizabeth. Witn. John Ransdell Jr., W.....liam Chinn, __ Bradford., prob. 1800. Schedule of estate of John Ransdell, decd. See also vol. 6, p. 109, inventory[?], 445.8. The following, proving the marriage to Elizabeth Chinn, was sent to me in a letter from James Finley: Claims filed in Public Land Records Office, London, England, Class A, p. 44. Debts which cannot be recovered in Va. courts. Elizabeth Chinn of Loudoun Co., Va., debt due with interest from 1773, 13 shillings, 1 pence. Intermarried with John Ransdell, who has since removed to Kentucky and solvent. Enquire of Col. Powell. (There was another, unplaced John Ransdell who m. Lucy Chilton, b. ca. 1773, and moved to Henry Co., Ky. Lucy was the dau. of John Chilton, b. 1739, d. bef. 24 Nov. 1777, killed at the battle of Brandywine in the Revolution. Lucy's parents were John Chilton and Letitia Blackwell. [See Dorman's history of the Chilton family in the Virginia Genealogist as referred to below under the section onWilliam Ransdell and Mary Chilton.])
(9) Wharton Ransdell, b. 28 Jan. 1750, Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Va. See the Wharton below, son of William Ransdell and Mary Chilton. It is still difficult to distinguish the two cousins. This Wharton, son of Wharton, is probably the one who m. Mary Morehead on 16 Jan. 1782, bondsman Turner Morehead (see Gott, Fauquier Co. Marriages, p. 164). Since a Wharton (not the grandfather above) had an inventory (total 240.7.0) returned by William Norris, George Carter and Turner Morehead on 23 Oct. 1786 in Fauquier Co., he probably died earlier that year. His administrator was Turner Morehead. (See p. 178, Gott, Wills, from Fauquier Co. Will Book 2, p. 109). It is not impossible that his wife Mary Morehead is the Mary Ransdell who m. 18 Nov. 1786, Fauquier Co., Va., Thomas Ransdell Jr. (son of William and Mary Chilton??), bondsman Thomas Ransdell (see Gott, Fauquier Co. Marriages, p. 164). It would be logical for this Wharton's father Wharton (see his will) to provide for the two grandsons (Wharton Ransdell and Charles Morehead Ransdell) because their father had died or was ill when they were still children. This Wharton may be the one mentioned in the Alcock index whose estate was sold in 1792 to pay his debts. Could the Margaret Ransdell who was bound out to Robert Hunton in 1792 be a part of this family? (See Alford index.)
(10) Presley Ransdell, probably d. before his father, who did not name him in his will. Mentioned by Wharton's brother Edward, d. 1773, above.
Morehead information was obtained from a typescript in the library of the Kentucky Historical Society entitled Kentucky Families Descended from Charles and Mary (Turner) Morehead, comp. Lola Herron Jaques, Nov. 1979. Their son Turner Morehead is said to have m. (1) Ann Ransdell, dau. of Wharton, who died sometime between Aug. 1795 and Jan. 1798. Turner and Ann had nine children, born between Jan. 1780 and Aug. 1795. Two of them, Peggy and Polly, married Charles Morehead Ransdell and Wharton Ransdell IV, apparently their cousins, in Nelson Co., Ky. on 23 June 1806 (p. 122, Marriage Bond & Consent Book of Nelson County, 1801-1816, publ. by Nelson County Genealogists, Bardstown, Ky., no date.). This grandson Wharton appears as a baker at age 65 (b. ca. 1785) with his wife Mary, also 65, in the 1850 census of Sangamon Co., Illinois. His sons (or grandsons?) Wharton, Presley and James B., all b. Ky., were carpenters or cabinet makers. There was also a Walter Ransdell, b. ca. 1824, Ky., in the same census with his own family.

In Reply to: Re: LONG OUTLINE, EARLY RANSDELLS!!! by Ed Ransdell of 440

Regarding the question of Elizabeth Moore vs. Elizabeth Chinn, here is a summary of what I got some years ago from a Ransdell correspondent:
He concludes that Margaret is the dau. of John Ransdell whose mg. to Elizabeth Chinn, dau. of above Elijah, he proves by these documents:
Loudoun Co. Will Book A., p. 290, wr. 22 Jan. 1771, pr. 11 March 1771, will of Elijah Chinn, who mentions, among others, dau. Elizabeth Chinn and the above two illegitimate children.
Loudoun Co. Deed Book F, p. 414. John Ransdell, assignee of Thos. Chinn and Levin Powell, exrs. of Elijah Chinn, Pltf., vs. William Hucheson and Edwin Furr, Dfts.
Claims filed in Public Land Records Office, London, England, Class A, p. 44. Debts which cannot be recovered in Va. courts. Elizabeth Chinn of Loudoun Co., Va., debt due with interest from 1773, 13 shillings, 1 pence. Intermarried with John Ransdell, who has since removed to Kentucky and solvent. Enquire of Col. Powell.
He says that John Ransdell, b. ca. 1754, d. ca. 1800, m. Elizabeth Chinn, is the father of Margaret who m. Morgan Bryan
Child of John Ransdell and Elizabeth Chinn is:
  139 i.   Margaret Ransdell, born in Kentucky; died 1844 in Near Brazil, Clay County, Indiana; married Morgan Bryan in Henry County, Kentucky.

      320. Jacob Barnhart, born Abt. 1716 in Palatinate, Germany; died Abt. 1785 in Montgomery County, Pennslyvannia. He married 321. Christina.

      321. Christina

Notes for Jacob Barnhart:
From: "John Barnhart" <>
Our Jacob's father was also a Jacob Bernhard, the one who came to America from the Palatinate in 1738 on the ship "Glasgow". I have Jacob, Sr. documented with his signature from the ship's list and tax records from his time in New Hanover, PA. The other Jacob Bernhard in the Falkner Swamp area of PA (now Montgomery Co) came in 1741 and was married to Christina Unknown. Both families settled in the same area from about 1740 to 1770.
Child of Jacob Barnhart and Christina is:
  160 i.   Jacob Barnhart, born See Notes; died 1825 in Fairfield County Ohio; married Mary Ann Miller.

      322. Conrad Miller He married 323. Hannah.

      323. Hannah

Notes for Conrad Miller:
Conrad Miller (b. 1730, d. 1782) came to America in 1731. His name was signed in big sprawling letter on the ship's manifest. The Miller family settled in Washington County, Maryland. Immediately north of Washington County, is Franklin County, Pennsylvania, formed from Cumberland County, PA in 1784. The information from the deed indicates that Conrad Miller did not actually move, but that his tract changed jurisdictions between 1773 and 1782. Conrad Miller died between 26 July 1782, when his will was written, and 11 June 1783, when the will was probated.

1. Elizabeth m. John Henry Waschenbach / Washabaugh 1771*
2. Susanna m. Simon Shaffer Jr.
3. Mary Ann (Anna Maria) married JACOB BARNHART
4. Jacob (b. 11-3-1803) m. Susanna?
5. John
6. Daniel
7. Henry
