Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 760, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"DR. W. S. RANNELS was born in Fulton County, Indiana, March 17, 1849, and is the eldest of three children born to NEWTON and ELIZABETH (SPENCER) RANNELS, viz.: W. SCOTT, ALONZO and LYCURGUS. The father was born in Virginia, and was formerly a merchant. He went to the war of 1861 as Quartermaster of the Eighty-seventh Indiana Volunteer Infantry, but returned just after the battle of Chickamauga; at present he is conducting a hotel at Rochester, (Fulton County), Indiana. In 1868, W. SCOTT, our subject, began the study of medicine, at Rochester, under DR. J. W. BRACKETT; in the winter of 1869-70, he attended a course of lectures at Rush Medical College, Chicago; he attempted another course in 1871-72, but was compelled to relinquish it on account of the great fire; he then attended the Indiana Medical College, Indianapolis, in 1873-74, receiving the degree of M. D. in the spring of 1874. For two years he practiced in Marshall County, Indiana, and in the fall of 1877 came to Monterey. He was married, June 1, 1874, to LEOTA HUNTER, who gave birth to one child - CORA, and then died. January 3, 1877, he married ELIZA BRETZ, who has borne him one child - FRED. The Doctor, in connection with his practice in Monterey, conducts the only drug store in the place."
