Let me thank you sincerely for answering my posting.I'm sorry I hadn't already answered you but I've been working overtime and weekends are the only time I have right now for geneology.
I got both your e-mails and you presumed correctly, it is Wesley B. Ransbottom I am interested in rather than Wesley R. The 1860 census that I looked at was a little tough to read and when I recently looked at my old notes I saw that I had written a "B" and then ? beside the "R".
Let me digress for a moment. I have been doing geneological research for over 25 years but am new to using the internet and I cannot believe how fast everything moves "on-line". I have been researching my mother's line (Wright) for 25 yrs. but have run into the famous brick wall. I was hoping to move farther along by learning more about the Ransbottom line. I am intrigued at how you fit into the picture and really look forward to hearing from you again. Emily Wright was the daughter of my gr-gr-grandparents Asa and Jane Wright. Asa Wright was one of the early settlers of Allen Co.,Ohio in German[now American] Twp. Wesley and Emily were in fact married by Asa who was a Justice of the Peace on 8/8/1839.I should mention that I have their oldest daughter shown as Nancy J.from the 1850 census but I understand from you that it was apparently Mary Jane. In the 1860 census the enumerator used only initials(I'm sure you already have seen this census) and he lists Wesleys wife as C-fem.age 29, and children N.J. age 19 fem.,S.C.-fem age 17, A-male age 15,M.J. age 13male(These are identified as step-children of "C" and children of Wesley and "C" are identified as M.S. male age 7 and M.E. female age 3.In the 1850 census there is a Thomas and Susannah Ransbottom living next door. I had always presumed that this was Wesley's parents.I hope we can continue to compare notes and you can e-mail me direct which would probably be a lot quicker. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you.
