Obediah Ragsdale
Birth: 1768
Pittsylvania County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1820
Boone County
Kentucky, USA

My 4th great Grandpa; born before 1768 and died between 1818-1820. Son of Daniel Ragsdale & Phoebe (maiden name unknown); grandson of Benjamin Sr. & Martha (Jones) Ragsdale.

2nd great-grandson of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale.

Married Elizabeth Anderson, probably about 1795. Children:
1) Berryman Ragsdale (1795-1842) m 30 Jun 1815 to Mrs. Sarah (Walton) Chapman (1799-1864)

2) Gabriel Ragsdale (1799-1850/1860) m 5 Oct 1826 to Lubenia Campbell (1804-unknown)

3) Susan A. Ragsdale (1807-1830) never married

4) Rebecca Allen Ragsdale (1807-1862) m 14 Feb 1828 to Willis Calvert (1794-1849)

5) Charles Anderson Ragsdale (1808-1892) m 19 Apr 1827 to Casandra Crisler (1810-1905)

In 1800 he purchased 124 acres on Lick Run in Mason County.

By 1810 they were in Bracken County then moved to Boone County in 1818.

He died after November 20, 1819 when he sold a slave, Jarman (male, age 15) and before the 1820 census was taken. I do not know that he is buried in Old Burlington Cemetery (if he is, it is without a stone); however I have placed him here until we do find an exact location.
