I am also researching John B. Ragsdale of Williamson and Hickman Co., TN. He was still alive when the 1870 Hickman Co., TN Census was taken. He was 67 years old.

A son by his first marriage was Solomon Jenkins K. Ragsdale who is also in the 1870 Hickman Co., TN Census on the same page(506). They only have him listed as S. Ragsdale.
Most of his family is buried at Willow Springs Cemetery in Hickman Co., TN. Solomon Jenkins Ragsdale's wife Josephine Bradley Ragsdale is buried there. She died in 1920.
Death Records of Hickman Co., TN by Louise Lynch lists a death for:
Ragsdale, S. J. K.: #44546, 4th Dist.; Age. 63 yrs., Hickman Co., D. March 31, 1909, Hickman Co.; White; Married.
My guess is that he is also buried in Willow Springs Cem. not sure whether there is a tombstone or not.
I can't figure out who this John Brown Ragsdale was that is supposed to have died abt. 1842??
There were several John Brown's including one on the east side of the county part of Edward Ragsdale's line. No relation to Benjamin Ragsdale of the 2nd Dist. that I have found.
