In Reply to: Random Ringo Question by Karen Adams of 423

Most members of the Ringo family are descended from Philip Janszen Ringo who came from Holland in 1640. There are some Ringo family members who came to America between 1895 and 1910. Most came from Sicily and settled in southern New Jersey. There are also a couple who came from Russia and Austria in the same period. However, they are all part of the same Ringo family. Some Ringo family members moved to Sicily in the 1100's others moved to Russia during the same period. I checked the Ringo family name index and could find none with the first name Alex or Alexander. There may have been some members in the Ringo family in Greece around 395AD when the Romans were there. Us Ringos' seem to like fighting in wars. The Ringo family moved to the settlement at Assunpink Creek (now Trenton) in 1701 and later to what is now Hunterdon County, NJ around Ringoes, NJ. Do you know your grand mother and great grand mother's maiden names?
