Ragsdale, 1880 Census, Clay Co.

  of 691

Can someone familiar with the Ragsdale families of Clay Co., AL ca. 1880 help me figure this out, please?

In the Clay Co., AL 1880 census, Ashland beat 6, page 41 and 42, there are three Ragsdale families. On page 41 the first Ragsdale group looks like Marion, wife Flora, and three children in dwelling 368. The second Ragsdale group is Wm T., wife Sallie, and five children in dwelling 369. The third Ragsdale group, in dwelling 371, at the bottom of the page in line 49 and 50, is hard to read, it looks like Wm Sr, head of household and then a person named Louisa.

On page 42, line one begins with Elizabeth J., wife, and Nancy Holdridge, mother-in-law. Then dwelling 373, the White family, begins. There is no dwelling 372, so I can't figure out if the census taker left out the husband and dwelling number for family 372, or if Elizabeth is supposed to be the wife of the Ragsdale in dwelling 371 on the previous page.

Elizabeth is Elizabeth Holdridge, daughter of Nancy Blackstock Holdridge. I have not found a record of her marriage.

Thanks in advance for any help.
