I'll add the little extra I found to what Hugh and Alice gave you. It fleshes out the tree a little. When a young adult male disappears after the 1860 census, first thought is Civil War. No Jeffers or Jefferson Ramsey/Ramsay listed from AL on the Soldiers and Sailors site, but several "J." Ramseys, and a couple of "J." Ramsays. You might follow up on them. The following gives you a few more siblings of Isaac, maybe you can find descendants of one of them who knows a little more on the family.

1870 census Limestone Co, AL:

Terry, Eliza, 45, b SC - no land or personal listed
Ramsay[sic], Mary 16, b AL - Farm Laborer
" Lucy, 14, b AL - Farm Laborer
" Jefferson, 12, b AL - Frm Lab
" Isaac 10, b AL - Frm Lab
" Mark, 8, b AL - At Home
" Lilly 6, b AL - At Home
" Rose 4, b AL - At Home
Terry, John 12, b AL - Day Laborer
" Joel, 10, b AL - Day Lab
" Julia, 8, b AL - At Home
" Malinda, 6, b AL - At Home

Who is Eliza???? Two men named Terry on the 1860 Limestone Co, AL census, none with an Eliza. Did she lose a husband to the War, too?

You might check Limestone Co, AL land records. On 1860 census Jeffers owns land, what happened to it?

Happy Hunting (^_^)
