"The Palmer and Ragsdale families were near neighbors in South Carolina (Note. The U.S. Census of 1800 indicates this). Of several Palmer families in that region, the nearest were the families of William and Hezekiah Palmer. Both of the men in these families were about the same age as Hezekiah Ragsdale and either one could have been the father of Elizabeth. Not far from these lived Parmenus Palmer and his family. Being past forty-five years old (Ref. 1800 Census) Parmenus could well have been Elizabeth's grandfather. She named one of her sons Permenus." Ray W. Ragsdale, "Hezekiah Ragsdale: His Roots and Branches," ( 1981 Privately Published, Evansville, IN), pp 91-92.

Married John Ragsdale, March 8, 1827 in Daviess Co., IN.
