John Ramsey1

M, b. circa 1750, d. 13 April 1818
     John Ramsey was born circa 1750 at Augusta Co, VA.. He was the son of (---) Ramsey. He married Mary Everly, daughter of Caspar Everly and Sarah (---). He died on 13 April 1818 at Monongalia Co, VA..
In October 1771, John Ramsey came and settled in the area of the west side of Monongalia River near Scotts Run, near the present day town of Osage. On Jan 9, 1774, John purchased Daniel Harris's improvement which was about a half mile from the River. In 1775, John obtained a land grant of 400 acres and surveyed his claimed land in 1782. There are several dispositions preserved in the Monongalia District Court around 1800-1802, which show the disputes that John and his brother Charles had with other settlers claiming the same area in the 1770's and 1780's.
John Ramsey remained in the area his entire life and the land was passed on to his sons when he died in 1818.
John had followed his brother, Charles Ramsey, who settled a large family in the same area, in the summer of 1770. Charles sold his claim to the land in 1785/6 to Jacob Scott. In a 1799 Court document, Charles is said to "about to move from this state".
The ancestry of John Ramsey is unknown, only that he had a brother named Charles. [There is no known connection between this John Ramsey and another John Ramsey, who also was one of the original settlers of Monongalia County in 1770 and who lived on his plantation on the Cheat River. That John Ramsey died in 1796 and his children moved on to Cape Girardeau, Missouri.]
