Debbie, I am researching the RATTIKIN family. My GGgrdad was Archibald D., b 1810. He had bros Joseph C born c 1813, and John. Family tradition says they came from Ire, but I think they were prob born in Amer, and their parents or grparents came from Ire. Arch and John were on Lincoln Co, Tn tax list 1832. All 3 bros were on 1846 tax list. Arch and Joseph were on 1840 and 1850 Linc Co census. I find no record of Arch aft 1850.Jo- seph d Jan 1874 Linc Co. His wife was Green- lilly. I have the names of both Arch's and Joseph's children. I was told by my Dad that John went to Tx. I have found a Civil War vet named John who d in Austin, Travis Co, Tx, and is bur in St Cem. He was b 1836, d Dec 1902, but he is too young to be Arch's bro.
