Re: Ringer-1900- Sarah, Jackson

Sarah Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wolford (b. Jul 1858 in TX, d. 31 May 1917 in OK) married Jackson Ringer (b. 24 Apr 1858 in GA, d. 22 Apr 1899) in Dallas, Texas on October 26, 1879. They had 10 children, my grandmother, Martha Iva Ringer King being the 7th child and youngest daughter. Jackson Ringer is buried along with their infant son H.A. Ringer in Cooper Creek Cemetery in Denton, TX. Lizzie still lived in Denton as of 1900 according to the US Census, but cannot find her or any of their unmarried children listed in the 1910 census. Three sons have WWI draft registration records, one in Grady County, one in Pittsburg County and the youngest one in Murray County, all in Oklahoma. More than one source says Lizzie died in Wynnewood, OK which is very near Davis where her youngest daughter lived. It is believed that she was buried with her husband Jackson Ringer in Denton, TX, however a search of that cemetery finds no marker for her. There is also no marker for her in the Davis, OK cemetery where her daughter and several grandchildren and ggrandchildren are buried and no record of her burial in Wynnewood, OK.

Jackson Ringer was born in Troup County, GA to William Jackson Ringer (1821-1886) and Martha J. Harris (1834-1870). William Jackson Ringer was born in South Carolina to Nicholas Ringer (1765-1837) and Rebecca Jackson, he is buried in the Asbury United Methodist Church Cemetery in Troup County, Ga near the plantation that he owned and operated. There are several landmarks named "Ringer" in the area including Ringer Road, Ringer Access Road, Ringer Landing and Ringer Campground at West Point Lake near LaGrange, GA.

I would love to share more with anyone researching the Ringer/Wolford line also, please contact me.
