NANCY ANN RAGSDALE m. HENRY WILSON in 1830 in Madison Co. TN. In 1840-50, they were in Tippah Co and nearby was ABEL RAGSDALE, who also migrated from Madison Co TN. It is believed by other researchers that RHETTA RAGSDALE was married to JESSEE WILSON. He was also in Tippah Co in 1840, but his 1st wife had evidently died about 1835 in McNairy Co TN. Can anyone clue me in on these RAGSDALES. Thank you very much.
