He was awarded a pension, Certificate No. 19033.
Benjamin's wife was Martha Brown, they married in Moore Co., NC Sept. 1778.
Benjamin Ragsdale's children were:
Mary, William, Daniel, Dempsey, Lancaster, Kesiah, Dicey, Sarah, John and Roda Ragsdale.
John Brown Ragsdale married Mary Heron Randolph in Maury Co., TN 19 May 1821.
Lancaster Ragsdale married Elizabeth Randolph in Williamson Co., TN 1 Feb. 1819. The bondsman was John C. Randolph.
This Ragsdale family lived in the 2nd District of Williamson Co., TN a few miles from the Maury Co. line.
I have census records showing John B. Ragsdale in Williamson Co. in the 1840 and 1850 census.
John Ragsdale married Sarah Dowdy 28 Apr. 1849 in Williamson County, TN and Porter Montgomery was the bondsman.
John Ragsdale is in Hickman Co., TN which borders Williamson County in the 1860 Census.
Does any of this match the information you have on Mary Heron Randolph?
Thanks for any help.
