    Father Joshua RATLIFF,   b. 1820, Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Mother Lucretia HARRIS,   b. 1812, South Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. Bef 15 May 1856  (Age < 44 years) 
    Married 3 Jan 1841  Blount County, Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [7
    • A transcription of the marriage record gives Lucretia's name as "Lucretia Hamp". No one has been able to find any evidence of a "Hamp" marriage, and the evidence seems convincing to me that Lucretia's maiden name was Harris. At this time, I have chosen not to record a prior marriage for Lucretia - it appears she was living with her sister Jane Brown and mother Elizabeth Harris in the 1840 census.
