Re: GR-GRANDFATHER RINGER

A lucky day for you, perhaps you should buy some lottery tickets. My late Cousin, R. Doyne Halbritter was a Preston County historian, who wrote a news column, PRESTON NAMES OF NOTE. One of those columns was RINGER Family.
Doyne gives as his source Hazel Ringer Wiles of Smithfield, Pennsylvania. (Column about 1972 so Hazel may have moved) Send me a street address and I'll mail you a copy of the Ringer Column. But in brief:
Victor Ringer who married Rachel Stockett was the son of William C Ringer (1830 - 1899) and Mary Ann Smith (1831-1912). They had six children. William C Ringer was the son of Conrad R Ringer (May 7 1807 - Jan 3 1893) and Mary Ann Silbaugh (1805-Nov/7/1877). I know of at least 4 children. Conrad and Mary jane are buried in Centenary Cemetery, Pleasant District, Preston County.
Conrad was one of five brothers who came from Somerset County, Pennsylvania in 1832. Six members of the family were in Union forces in Civil War.
BTW: Molly married Joseph Titchnell (with a T not a F) a well established Preston County Family.
