I haven't seen the multi-volume set, understand it is in the Indianapolis Public Library. I do have a condensed single volume that was done by Nathaniel Usher Ringo at the same time as the multi-volume set and handed down via the oldest son down my line. My dad updated it for our branch until he passed in 2000.

My line:

Jean Ringo
Philip Janszen Ringo
Albertus Ringo
Philip Ringo
Henry Ringo
Cornelius Ringo (brother of John Peters Ringo)
Major Ringo
Morgan Bryan Ringo
Nathaniel Usher Ringo
Asa Wilkinson Ringo
John Edward Ringo
Danny Edward Ringo
Thomas Edward Ringo

The original volume I have has the following written inside the cover:

To Asa W. Ringo and family given by his father July 11, 1926.

On topic, there is a note my dad added in regard to Johnny Ringo:

"Johnny Ringo lived during the same generation as Nat U. Ringo, the originator of our family history. It is said that Nat U. did not want Johnny Ringo included in our family tree."

I am told this is because he was an outlaw.

Have not seen but a few references to the family prior to around 1588 with Jean (or John) Ringo's estimated birth.

        Realized I inadvertently made an error next to Cornelius Ringo identifying him as the brother of John Peters Ringo, rather, John Peters Ringo was the great-grandson of Major Ringo
