Posted by: Milisia Hanlin (ID *****0429) Date: January 12, 2012 at 04:21:41
  of 1522

Nathaniel RAGAN, 1762-1831, md. widow Elizabeth RAY GRIFFIN [WILKERSON], 1751-1831, circa 1784;

his wife, Elizabeth RAY, 1751-1831, first married Major John GRIFFIN, 1745-1780, believed to have died in Battle of Fishing Creek [disputed]; to this first marriage, six (6) GRIFFIN children are known.

Widow Elizabeth RAY GRIFFIN, 1751-1831, is believed to have married second, John WILKERSON--[this is disputed amoung researchers]; she married last Nathaniel RAGAN, spelling 'RAGIN' on his cemetery grave marker.

Elizabeth RAY GRIFFIN WILKERSON RAGAN and Nathaniel RAGIN are buried in Raysville Cemetery, also known as Old Ragan Family Cemetery, and today known as Methodist Historical Cemetery # 4, in Lincoln County, Georgia.

To her last marriage to Nathaniel RAGAN, three (3) children are known, including:

daughter, Rebecca RAGAN, 1785-1825, married Dickerson HALIDAY [variant spelling: HALIDAY, HALLIDAY, HOLIDAY, HOLLIDAY] [enumerated as 'DICKSON HALADAY', 1782-1827; to this marriage, six (6) children are known, including: Martha A. HALIDAY FRATH, 1802-1882; Cynthia HALIDAY, 1804-1887, md. Billington McCarty SANDERS, 1789-1852, (among the founders of Georgia's Mercer University); Nathaniel Ragan HALIDAY, 1808-1887; Dickerson [Thomas] HALIDAY, 1812-1891, and Simeon HALIDAY, 1816.

daughter, Cynthia RAGAN, 1790-1805, died in late childhood, buried Raysville Cemetery, known as Old Ragan Family Cemetery, and today, known as Methodist Historical Cemetery # 4, Lincoln County, Georgia;

daughter, Lucinda RAGAN, 1795-1867; she married first, John CUTLIFF, January 6, 1815, Lincoln County, Georgia; to this marriage two (2) children are known: daughter, Mary Ann CUTLIFF, 1819-1831, buried Raysville Cemetery, known as Old Ragan Family Cemetery, and today known as Methodist Historical Cemetery # 4, Lincoln County, Georgia and son, John M. CUTLIFF, 1823-1907, md. December 17, 1846, Columbia County, Georgia, Mary Shakelford JONES; they are buried Oakview Cemetery, Albany, Doughtery County, Georgia. Widow Lucinda RAGAN CUTLIFF [enumerated as 'LUCINDA CULLIFF'] married July 28, 1825, Putnam County, Georgia, widower, Dickerson HALIDAY [enumerated as 'DICKSON HALADAY', 1782-1827, formerly first married to her sister, Rebecca RAGAN, 1785-1825. Widow Lucinda RAGAN CUTLIFF HALIDAY married third, May 26, 1833, Lincoln County, Georgia, Jamerson MABRY. Lucinda RAGAN CUTLIFF HALIDAY MABRY, 1795-1867, is buried Raysville Cemetery, known as Old Ragan Family Cemetery, and today known as Methodist Historical Cemetery # 4, Lincoln County, Georgia; her cemetery marker enumerates her as the 'wife of John CUTLIFF'.

Dickerson HALIDAY, 1782-1827, is buried Raysville Cemetery, known as Old Ragan Family Cemetery, today known as Methodist Historical Cemetery # 4, Lincoln County, Georgia.

Seeking more information about this/these family/families, known living after circa 1784, on Little River, Wilkes County, then Lincoln County, Georgia.

Seek documentation to document and support identification of the parents of Dickerson HALIDAY, 1782-1827--was he a son of American Revolutionary War Veteran, Private Reverend William HOLLIDAY, 1723-1786, and his wife, Ann AYRES, 1725-1786, late of Wilkes County, Georgia, or was he the son of Thomas HOLLIDAY, son of Elijah William HOLLIDAY, or was he known as Thomas Dickerson HOLLIDAY who first married Rebecca RAGAN?

Also, seeking cemetery grave marker of John CUTLIFF, first husband of Lucinda RAGAN, which may have been in Putnam County, Georgia; he died apparently before July 28, 1825.
