This particular Ramsay descendant has the given name Ramsay, but while his surname is no longer Ramsay, he has a strong desire to know more about his Ramsay lineage from Nova Scotia, Canada. His grandmother was Sophia Ella Ramsay (1883 - 1951) who married George Archie McDermid (1883 - 1977). Sophia's parents were William Ramsay (b. ca. 1839 in Nova Scotia - d. ca. 1893 in Wisconsin, probably) and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Higgins (1852 New Brunswick - 1918 Eau Claire, Wisconsin). However, there the trail goes "cold". If you are related or have information about these persons or others along a similar migration from Canada to the US, please contact us.
