A post by Marilyn several months after this post. She's changed the name of Richard's father from William to Elijah and added needed information. Here's that post:

"I am searching for more information on my gg grandmother, Jane Tumlinson, b 1799 Lincoln NC, d 1858 DeWitt TX, who in 1818 married Elijah Ratliff in Ft. Smith AK. According to Dannheim in "Sons of the Republic of Texas" p.168, she was daughter of John Jackson Tumlinson Sr. and Elizabeth Plemmons. Can anyone verify this? I have 1850 census showing her as widow living with her children in Smith Co TX, and an 1859 land patent for 176 acres in Shelby Co. Her children with Elijah were: Elisha 1819-, John Jackson b1822 m Alvira, William Riley b1824 m Mary, Lyda Jane b1829, Richard F b 1830 m Hulda Teague, Eliza Jane b 1833 m Henry Harriff, Elijah Jr b 1836, and Siddie Jane b 1839 m William Stockton."


1850 Jane lived in SMITH COUNTY, Texas (widow)
1859 Jane acquired land in SHELBY COUNTY, Texas
1858 Jane died in DeWitt, Texas (county or town, I don't know)

Elisha Ratliff 1819
John Jackson Ratliff 1822 m Alvira
William Riley Ratliff 1824 m Mary
Lyda Jane Ratliff 1829
Richard Ratliff 1830 m Hulda
Eliza Jane Ratliff 1833 m Harry Harriff
Elijah Ratliff jr 1836
Siddie Jane Ratliff 1839 m William Stockton
