10. Andrew RAMSEY

Andrew Ramsey's grave stone in Good Hope Cemetery computes to the 7 June 1804 bi rth date. A second grave stone for him found as a sidewalk on the old Butler far m down the road has a conflicting age, computing to a birthdate of 7 Feb 1805.
BURIAL: A second tombstone for Andrew Ramsey was found in the early 1980s. It was a large slab stone that had been used as a sidewalk at the McGinnis house on St Rt 292. The house used to belong to relatives, and it was originally the old John Hill farm. This newly found tombstone listed Andrew's age different, he would have been born on 7 Feb 1805. It also said he was a member of the M. E. Church. We really don't know which stone is correct, but possibly the second was a correction of the first. It is possible that the grave was moved from the Hill farm to Good Hope, but not probable. Probably when Clarissa died they replaced the stone to have one large one for both parents. When William Ramsey deeded the Cemetery to the township he transferred all of the land except his father's grave.
