Trying to locate the parents and ancestors of my great great grandmother, Mary Catherine Carroll. She was born Nov 5, 1840 in Georgia, died Mar 4, 1931 in Atlanta, GA. James Berry Ragsdale and Mary Catherine Carroll were married in Fulton Co. GA on August 11, 1859. Both are buried at Flat Shoals Baptist Church, Brushy Knob, Henry Co., Georgia, southeast of Atlanta.
We know nothing precise about Mary Catherine Carroll's lineage. Family tradition suggests that the Carroll family ran a store in Henry Co. or elsewhere southeast of Atlanta.
JBR and MCC had the following children:
John S. Ragsdale b. Jul 12, 1860, d. Jul 31, 1875 Mary J. "Mollie" Ragsdale b. 1862, d. James Thomas Ragsdale b. Aug 1864, d. 1953 Martha Ophelia Ragsdale b. May 5, 1868 Oscar Luther Ragsdale b. Apr 20, 1870 Georgia Ragsdale b. 1871 Leila B. Ragsdale b. Jan 21, 1875, d. Mar 22, 1911 Dora D. Ragsdale b. Jun 1878, d. Sep 14, 1965 Charles M. Ragsdale b. Nov 1879 Bessie Ragsdale b. Mar 1882, d. Sep 9, 1954
