    Father Joshua RATLIFF,   b. 1820, Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. Yes, date unknown

    Married 3 Jan 1841  Blount County, Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • 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.

  • Notes 
    • I have never been able to find another trace of a Lugana Ratliff. However, I did find an Elizabeth Ratliff, age 22, born in Alabama, living with John Ratliff in 1870. Could Lugana actually be Elizabeth?
