The William Ratliff born Dec 18 1822 in Va and died Jan. 26, 1898 in Ky is the son of James Ratliff and Elizabeth Lawson. James is the son of Reuben Ratliff, Jr, the Rev. War Soldier, and Phebe Ratliff.
Reuben Ratliff is a brother to my 3rd great grandfather John Ratliff that married Charlotte White. And their parents were Ruben Ratliff [Sr.] and Frances --------never did find out what her maiden name was.
Ruben Sr. father was Samuel Ratliff. The above Phebe Ratliff was a daughter of Silas "Anselus" Ratliff and Elizabeth.
This Silas "Anselus" Ratliff is a cousin to Ruben Sr. Silas "Anselus" Ratliff father was Robert Ratliff and Mary Touchstone.
Robert Ratliff and Samuel Ratliff are brothers I do believe.
Now the Rev. War soldier Nathan Ratliff is a son of William Ratliff and Susanah, William is the brother to Silas "Anselus" Ratliff .
I hope this will help.
