I am a direct descendant of Richard Ratliff and Hulda Bailey Teague. Their son, Elijah, was my grandfather. Richard's father was William Ratliff. William was married to Jane Tumlinson. If anyone would like me to send digital copies of photos I have of Richard and Hulda, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I've also posted them on ancestry.com.
I've just returned from the family history library at Salt Lake City. There has been a lot of research into the Ratliffs, but I'm having difficulty pinning down William's ancestry. He's from one of the branches that moved into Tennessee and, from there, to Texas. Any information about his parents would be greatly appreciated.
