Ratliff Jowell household in 1885

In Reply to: Jowell 1785 SC Land Grants by Mitchell of 268

My theory is that the 3 members of Ratliff's household in 1885, and upon whom he was granted land, were three of his sons: John (Jack), James Gabriel, and George. The only way I can reconcile a marriage between Ratliff & Chrystie and her marriage to Martin Dial (with first Dial son born in early 1880s)-- and with a land record of the 1890s mentioning Ratliff's widow, is that Ratliff & Chrystie divorced sometime after George's birth, and Ratilff remarried between 1885 and his death in 1888. Sarah Tabitha would have been born of this second marriage.
