|Death: ||Dec. 29, 1862|
My 4th 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?

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.
