I am also interested in Ramsdells from Belchertown MA. I do not have info on Franklin in particular, but I may be able to point you in the right direction for his father. A man named Joseph Ramsdell (born 14 May 1786, died 27 Jun 1850, both in Belchertown) married Olive Ward on 11 Mar 1808 in Belchertown. They had 9 children. Of these, 4 were girls. Of the other 5 male children, I can eliminate 1 of them for you: Dexter (the relative whom I am interested in). The other 4 are:
Porter, born 10 Oct 1808
Joseph, born 13 Jun 1813
Richard, born 2 Jul 1815
Edwin, born 12 May 1819
I suspect one of these is Frankin's father. There weren't many Ramsdells in Belchertown at this time (actually, there weren't many people at all!) and notice Frankin's middle name: Oliver. At this time, people had a tendency to reuse family names, and Olive is a family name. Also, they would all be about the right age.
Hope this helps, good luck, Erika Hamilton
