Parents of Joseph Ratliff
Posted by: Jim Linda Radcliff (ID *****0694) Date: September 06, 2011 at 16:28:59

We are trying to locate the parents of our

Joseph Ratliff b. abt. 1816 in Tennessee/Kentucky

We have Joseph married several times
1st. Amy Jackson in 1838 in Mississippi
2nd. to a Sarah Barrentine in 1843 in Carroll Co. Miss.
3rd to Mary Aten in 1861 in Louisiana

4th to Elizabeth Gibson in 1864 in Louisiana This is where my line follows through their son Jesse Robert Ratliff.

Last to a Nancy Owen in 1876 in Arkansas

It is believed that Joseph died about 1880 in Arkansas.

I have info on each of these marriages but am unable to connect Joseph to any parents. I have seen others state that this Joseph was the son of Joseph Ratliff and Keziah French Stone, but I cannot verify that. Any help you would have to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact me at

Thank you for any assistance,

Jim Radcliff
