Ramm Family - Parmer County

Ramm Family - Parmer County

Posted: 998365598000

Edited: 1190761038000
Surnames: Ramm, Kube
Does anyone know if descendants of the following family might still live in Parmer County?

Edward W. and Minnie May (Kube) Ramm

Also, if anyone has access to a Parmer County history book, would you please do a lookup for me to see if there might be a reference to the Ramm family.

Edward W. Ramm was originally from Copperas Cove, Coryell County, Texas. He had brothers who may have lived in the area, also. His brothers were Alvin Albert Ramm (died in California) and Walter Ramm.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.......Pauline

Not Sure you are still online... I have a Parmer county book done in 1980's...has Eddie & Minnie Ramm in it.

Eddie Ramm came with his parents from Copperas cove, Tx in 1923 to farm in the West Camp community in Bailey County. Albert Ramm bought a section of grass land for $15.00 an acre. A snow storm came and it snowed from Dec 7 till sometime in Jan. It was during this time that the Ramms hauled lumber and all their belongings out from Farwell depot with horses and wagons. Eddie farmed with his father until he married.
On Jan 3 1928, Eddie Ramm married Minnie KUBE from Lariat. They moved into a little huse on his fathers farm and lived there for 2 years. Our first child, Fred was born here. Then we bought 320 acres of part sod grass land for 25.00 an acre 2-1/2 miles south of Lariat on Rt. 2, Muleshoe, TX. In 1930 Ernest was born. Eddie farmed with horses and mules on dry land until he bought his first tractor in 1940.

There is more on his farm, looks like Eddie or Minnie were reciting the story themselves.

Children were Ernest, married Mary Bauer in 1955; Fred moved to Carthage, MO in 1965 and is a rancher; Alice married Carroll Huggins.

Hope this helps. Marge

Marge....How nice of you to reply after all this time! I truly appreciate your kindness. I was lucky enough to get in touch with Ernest Ramm and his wife Mary Alice of Parmer County shortly after my post. They are such wonderful people. We spoke on the telephone several times and they provided me with TONS of Ramm family info, including the information you sent. Thanks, again, for taking the time to send the family information. I appreciate nice folks like you....Pauline

actually, here's a list of the names:

Madge....I don't recognize any of the names listed, but thank you for the offer. I think assembling and making a quilt to donate would be a lovely idea, but understand the time involved in doing that. Thanks, again, for being so nice....Pauline
