Martha Jones Ragsdale
Birth: 1701
Death: unknown
Mecklenburg County
Virginia, USA

To my 6th great grandmother, I honor you with this memorial for all the trials and tribulations you must have lived through during the time in history of our country's founding. Our wonderful God surely watched over this precious family.

Probably the daughter of Captain Peter Jones & Mary Batte, who were neighbors.

Married Benjamin Ragsdale about 1723; twelve known children:
1. Daniel (my ancestor)
2. Rachail (m Mark Moore)
3. Peter, Sgt (m Sarah Charlton)
4. John S. (m Frances ?)
5. Richard
6. Benjamin, Jr. (m Susannah Price)
7. Winfred (m Michael Johnson)
8. William, Sr. (m Ann Parker & Mary Daniel)
9. Mary (m Augustine Rowland)
10. Jesse (m Margaret Glenn)
11. Thomas (m Mary Comer)
12. Godfrey (m Judith Ligon)

Death date unknown; Martha is mentioned in husband's will dated Dec 9, 1770 so we know she lived at least until then.

Probably buried on the Ragsdale's land on Bluestone Creek. No headstone has been found.
