Interested in the John and Mary Johnson Aten of Louisiana information.
We are researching the RATLIFF family.According to records, a Joseph RATLIFF married Widow Mary Johnson ATEN in 1861 in Sabine Parish, Louisiana.There were no children of this union (that I know of) marriage only lasted a couple of years it seams as Joseph RATLIFF married again in abt. 1864? and Mary appears on the 1870 Census living with her daughter.
Now Joseph RATLIFF had a son William b. abt. 1845, and Mary had a daughter Sophie b. abt. 1845.It appears that Sophie and William were married in 1863 in Sabine Parish, Louisiana.Can anyone shed more light on this family?
Would be happy to exchange information with any one on this line.
