    • I have been unable to locate this couple in the 1870 census; they may have gone to Arkansas with some of the other Ratliff families. At least one son appeared in Garland County, AR by 1880 and I believe that 3 other children moved there as well: Nancy Ratliff, who appears to have married Vestal Graves, Thomas J. Ratliff, b. 1862, and Ellen Ratliff. These last two are living in the Graves household, adjacent to James H. Ratliff.
