I am the mother of Logan Ragsdale. My father's correct name is Eddie Lee Eaker, born in either Tennessee or Mississippi to Susie Kathern and (not sure of father's name) perhaps Chris Eaker. My father's
(Eddie's) father was killed (murdered) when my father was about 5-7 years old. Before Eddie was about 19 or 20, he started working on a government (?) boat on the Mississippi. At age 21 he married my mother, Della Berry. They had two children:
Ola Ernestine (myself) and my brother (14 yrs. older than me) Ralph Lee. I was born in 1928 in Memphis, TN. After my parents divorced in 1930, my father was married for a short time to Frances (don't know last name). Then married to Florence Johnson. Florence and my father had a daughter named Katherine, born 1938. I am searching for my info. on my father's family and for my half sister Katherine. Thanks to anyone for their help in these searches.
