The RATELIFF Family of Southern Arkansas Updated December 28, 2000
About Our Family Research
My late father, Kenneth Earl Rateliff began researching the family history just prior to his death. Most of what you will see here is his work. Our information has been offered by several members of the Rateliff/Harden families in Nevada, Heampstead, Pulaski, and Rogers counties of Arkansas. Should you have any information about our family, especially should you belive you are related, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although I have not been able to confirm it, we believe our family is descended from Ivo de Tailbois (John Talbot of England) Ivo assisted William the Conquerer take over England in 1066. He then maried a Welsh princess, Lucia.
Our name has undergone many changes in spelling, from what is believed to be the original Radclyffe to the more recent Ratliff and Rateliff versions.
