    Notes 
    • To my knowledge, the Ramage Clan had migrated to the Paducah, Kentucky area. Then, because of government landgrants (160 acres) being given to any who would homestead the acreage, James Ramage and his family came west by wagon or train to San Francisco, possibly in the late 1860's. From there they came by boat down the Pacific Coast as far as San Simeon. Anchoring offshore, they boarded a smaller rowboat with their few belongings and came ashore. They settled down on the second ridge of the coastal mountains, just behind where the large Hearst Castle is now located. [6]
