Richard was the son of Charles Ragsdale and Mariah? Zeriah "Zeria" Underwood. Known children of Charles and Zeria Ragsdale are: Robert Newton, David Franklin, Richard Madison, and Sarah Ann Ragsdale. (Robert and David are buried at Rhodes Chapel Cemetery. Sarah Ann m. Henry Graham, they are buried at Webb Yount Cem., Madison Co.)

Richard married between 1860-1870 Mary Unknown b.c1843 in Tennessee or Missouri. It appears they had no surviving children of their own, but in 1870 they may have been fostering / raising the 6 year old Wm S. Durnald in their household. They did raise Idia Bell Turney (1871-1928) buried at Captain Creek Cemetery, wife of Richard Daniel King. In 1880, 9 year old Ida B. Turney was living with Richard and Mary Ragsdale in Twelve Mile Twp. Their nephew Willis O. Ragsdale was also living in the household. Richard's occupation was "sawmilling."
