Re: Abednigo Ben Ratliff 1803-1890
Is this the John RATLIFF/RATCLIFF that I have seen posted as dying in 1835 in Jackson Co., Missouri?
If so - I am looking for a John RATLIFF/RATCLIFF who died Bet. 1831-1839 in Jackson Co., Missouri.
John left a widow, Mary Elizabeth (MILLER) RATCLIFF, and three sons:
Jacob M. RATCLIFF (1830-1925),
Miles Corkrell RATLIFF (1832-1923), and
Harvey RATCLIFF (b. 1832-1836).
Mary Elizabeth may well have been John's second wife since I have found information of possible earlier children by a different mother and the children include Abednego born about 1803.
After John's death Mary Elizabeth married on 17 Dec 1839 in Jackson Co., Missouri, William S. DENNING and they are my second great grandparents.
If we have the same John I can tell you what little I've found on the internet regarding him.
John Denning - Covington, Washington
