Notes for ROBERT L. RANSOM:|
Found him! In Arkansas!!
In Craighead Co. Ar. Federal Land Records before 1908 Homestead and Cash Entry Patents:
Ransom, Robert L. Sec. No. 11, Tract 14N, Range 3E, 80 Acres, dated 5/1/1860. 11/26/99 update: could be Robert L. who seems to be a son of John W. who would be about 27 in 1860.
Also there in Craighead Co. Ar. is Augustus Ransone (on the same Federal Land Records and in the 1860 census as well as John W. Ransone is in the 1860 census and a R. Ransone, also.
Note the "whole" group is there - Beverly B. is in Dallas Co. AR in 1873; John W. is in Craighead Co.; Augustus also.
Be Careful, John W. had a son named Robert L. and any reference to Robert L. might be him?

Note that in the 1782 census, James Hardwick's household was 8 whites (this adds up).
1827 Georgia Land Lottery: Jeremiah P. Ransom drew in Walton Co., Pg. 93, on the 30th day's drawing, 4/10/1827, Capt.'s District: 503rd; No. 318, Dist.: 22; County: Lee Co.
Census: 1830 Walton Co. Ga.: Listed as Jeremiah P. Ransom: males: 1 30-40; females: 1 40-50; slaves: 1 female 36-55; total household: 3.
Implies he was b. 1790-1800 and she 1780-1790.
Census: 1840 Walton Co. Ga.: Listed as J.P. Ransom: males: 1 40-50; females: 1 50-60.
Census: 1850 Walton Co. Ga.: Jeremiah is gone but Unice Ransom, aged 57 b. Ga. is listed 9/17/1850 dwelling 185. Implies she was b. abt. 1793 which doesn't jibe.
There's a Jeremiah P. Ransom who married in Clermont Ohio to Emma Hawkins on 2/11/1864. It's probably not this Jeremiah but note that Ambrose Ransom (some relation to Jeremiah) also moved to Ohio (he hated slavery). Perhaps, Jeremiah "left" Eunice, went to Ohio and remarried in his older age?
2/2000: note his sister, Nancy, who married Asa Durden named a child Jeremiah P.

Notes for UNPROVEN MALE RANSOM:|
The are 2 males 15-20 in Robert S.'s household in 1840. One is Reuben R. but the other is unknown, so I created this "person" on 11/16/99 to cover that scenario. Have no other proof that this person exists. This person is not Beverley B. or Augustus A. (Augustus is Robert S.'s grandson by a 1st marriage anyway).
