Subject:  James Ranney, 1802-1870, Allen Co., Indiana
Surnames:  Ranney, Abel
Query:  James Ranney is buried in the Old Huntertown Cemetery. He was born between 1802 and 1809 in either Massachusetts or NY, according to the 1850 and 1860 census, and died February 8, 1870. He married Elizabeth Abel in Ohio in 1836, lived in Ripley County and had four sons, John, George, Francis Marion and my great grandfather, Austin. John fought in the Civil War, lived in Allen County and is buried in the same cemetery. The question: where did James come from? Who were his parents? When did he come to Indiana? We cannot connect him to any other Ranney although we have tried for years.
