His journey took him many miles from Dogtown — a community near Linton, Indiana, USA — but James William (JW) Ringo’s memories of those times remained close to his heart throughout his life.
After JW’s death, that is why his son, James Joseph Ringo, traveled to Linton to donate his father’s 13 volumes of Ringo genealogy to the Linton Public Library.
“This is only the second time in my life that I have been in Linton,” said James as he talked about his father’s love for Greene County, “but every day my dad spoke about this area and the things he learned while living here. He also loved these books, so I thought this (Linton Library) would be the best place to leave them. ”
