Brick walls are the parts of your family tree that you have not been
able to push further back in that line. One of mine is the Ramsey Family
in Texas. Their daughter, Mary Angeline, my great grandmother, married
William Henry Funderburg in Palo Pinto Texas in 1863. I have set up
posts dedicated to each of the surnames I am researching, with details
on some of the more important members of the family hoping others with
the same surname will get in touch with me.
In the 1880 census, her name is Mary Ann in this one. it gives her
Birth Year: about 1844 and born in Illinois with her father’s
birthplace: Illinois and her mother’s birthplace: Illinois.
Texas Marriages, 1814-1909 shows Angeline Ramsey married Wm H. Funderburgh 8
Mar 1863 in Palo Pinto, Texas. I have searched for Ramsey’s in the Palo
Pinto area before and after the 1860 census with no luck. I was hoping
to find something in that time frame. I have some death certificates
for her children and only one gives the full name for her as Mary
Angeline, and the rest either Angeline Ramsey or just Ramsey.
So I will keep digging and trying to break through this brick wall.
