Notes for Sarah Jane Ferguson:
From the Ramsey Booklet:
I can remember Grandmother Johnson in her kind way, church meetings were held in her home. She became a member of the Primitive Baptist Church early in life and her membership had been in the Cheney Church 54 years.
Her numerous posterity remember her as a beautiful Christian life, an example to them and her many friends. She bore her great suffering with much patience. Her every thought was for her family and her church.

Notes for Margaret Catherine Ramsey:
Margaret had a brain tumor which was operated on and removed, about 1950. Dr. Upjohn, the surgeon, knew they didn't have much money, both receiving "Old Age Pension", so he charged them only $25.00 for the surgery. She re-cooperated at home. Dr. Upjohn made house calls to check on her.
They lived in a basement apartment in Salem Oregon at that time and it flooded several times. While Margaret was re-cooperating, it flooded. The family had to bail the water out.
She worked in a cannery and as a housekeeper for a hospital in Salem for several years.
