Apparently both you and I descend back to Robert Ring of Salisbury, MA.

Robert Ring is a first generation American, was born in England in 1614, came to Salisbury, where he died in 1690 or 1691. His wife's first name was Elizabeth. They had 7
children, four were boys. Robert was first selectman of Salisbury in 1682 and only 17 others exceeded him in taxes paid that year. (All this information came from a geneology compiled by Albert Merrill about 1900)

It would be interesting to correspond with you or speak to you by phone (my email address is: and my phone number is: 863-294-8432)

Hope to hear from you. Dr. William Mc Donald
