I will check the 1820 census again for a John Randolph who is in Maury Co., TN, not living with his wife.
Do you have a marriage date for the John C. Randolph who married Cloey (last name unknown)? This is the John C. Randolph you are telling me that died in Lauderdale Co., AL and the will was probated in 1838.
They had a son John C. Randolph who married Dicey Ragsdale 8 Jun 1819 in Williamson Co., TN. Did both of them died in Holly Springs, MS? A previous posting said that Dicey died in 1849 and is buried in Hillcrest Cemetery with some of your McKiel family.
Williamson County, TN was formed in 1799.
Maury County, TN was formed in 1807, some of my relatives signed the petition to form Maury out of Williamson.
I have lived in the area all my life, Dist. #2 and #4 border each other and both border Maury Co., TN.
The Ragsdales on the east side of the county had some similar names but the names Edward, Robert, and Henry used in that family were not names used by the Dist. #2 Ragsdales. The east side Ragsdales were the ones with all the money. They also lived in a Dist. which borderd Maury county and Marshall County, TN.
Dist. #2 in Williamson County is on the opposite side of the county no where near Marshall County.
I do have proof that John B. Ragsdale in Williamson County is the son of Benjamin Ragsdale the Rev. Soldier living in Dist. #2 of Wm. Co., TN. I have census records, marriage records, tax records, school records, cemetery records and later birth and death records of descendants.
There are two Rev. Soldier's named Benjamin Ragsdale. One is out of Va and related to a Godfrey Ragsdale family and the other one is Benjamin Ragsdale of Moore Co., NC.
Someone has gotten these two Ragsdale families confused and I have to be sure my documentation clears it all up before I submit it.
