Rebecca Allen Ragsdale Calvert
Birth: 1807
Mason County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Dec. 29, 1862
Burlington
Boone County
Kentucky, USA

My 3rd great Aunt.

Daughter of Obediah Ragsdale & Elizabeth Anderson; granddaughter of Daniel & Phebe Ragsdale.

3rd great-granddaughter of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale

Rebecca was the second wife of Willis Calvert, marrying him in Boone Co., KY in 1828. According to "Kentucky: A History of the State, Boone Co." James W. Calvert was the eldest of twelve children, yet Willis Calvert's first wife, Elizabeth Ewing only lived ten years after James W. was born. A possibility that 12 children were born in this ten year period, but not likely. Probably, Rebecca reared some of Elizabeth Ewing Calvert's children and had several of her own.

Besides her own home undertaking, I picture her beside her husband during his occupation as Hotel Keeper (1832 to 1847). Can you picture the pioneers traveling through Burlington and staying the night in the hotel on their way west to settle the new lands?

Known children:
Adelia born 1836
Augustus born 1838
Arabella born 1841
Louisa born 1842
Cyrus Haydon born 1843
LC born 1846
Julia born 1849

The 1850 census has step-son, James W. Calvert also listed with Rebecca, and with him being not yet eleven years old when Willis & Rebecca married, I have added him with a child link.
