      Notes for Anne RANSDELL:
      The Morehead information was obtained from a typescript in the library of the Kentucky Historical Society entitled KENTUCKY FAMILIES DESCENDED FROM CHARLES AND MARY (TURNER) MOREHEAD, compiled by Lola Herron Jaques. Their son, Turner Morehead married 1. Anne Ransdell daughter of Wharton Ransdell who died sometime between August 1795 and January 1798. Turner and Anne had nine children, born between January 1780 and August 1795. Two of them, Margaret "Peggy" and Mary "Polly", married Charles Morehead Ransdell and Wharton Ransdell, apparently their cousins, in Nelson County, Kentucky. on June 23, 1806 (p.122, Marriage Bond and Consent Book of Nelson County, 1801-1806, published by Nelson County Genealogists, Bardstown, Kentucky., no date. Wharton appears as a baker at age 65 (born ca. 1785) with his wife, Mary, also 65, in the 1850 census of Sangamon Co. Illinois. His sons (or grandsons ?) Wharton, Presley, and James B. all born in Ky. were carpenters or cabinet makers.
