Jane writes "I found Howard Ramsey in an 1870 Federal Census listed with Andrew Ramsey 1801-1870 and Martha A. Ramsey 1813-1871. Looks like he was their son. Howard is buried in Crow Meadow Cemetery, LaRose, Richland, Marshall, IL. Howard shares a stone marker with Laura B. Ramsey 1857-1879. They must have been married as I can not find Laura listed with any Ramsey family. Nex to them is Nora H. Ramsey, who must have been their child, 1877-1879. These were the only 3 Ramsey's that I could not identify until now. All of the Ramsey's in Crow Meadow belong to the same Ramsey family group.

Jemima Ramsey 1842-1877, dau of Andrew & Martha A. Ramsey married Ambrose Dudley Keedy 1842-1917. The had 2 daughters, Luella M. Keedy 1873-1948 and Margaret C. Keedy 187-1876. All 4 are buried in Crow Meadow.

Ambrose's parents are John Allen Keedy 1820-1897 and Caroline Matilda Thair Rackliff 1820-1894. They are buried in Bell Cemetery, Richland, Marshall, IL."
