Park Orville Ragsdale
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 12, 1891
Indiana, USA
Death: Nov. 3, 1955
Marina
Monterey County
California, USA

My 1st cousin, 2 times removed.

6th great-grandson of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale.

Married Mary M. Green, October 31, 1908 in Marion Co., IN. Obviously something happened because in the 1910 census for Indianapolis, Marion Co., IN, Park is "married" living with brother, Oliver but his wife is not listed with them. Then in the 1920 census for Hamilton, Ohio, Park is single again.

World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942:
Age 50; Residence: 1396 Golden Gate Ave, San Francisco, CA; Employer: WA Bechtel Company (start 9/1/1942); Next of kin: Sister, Ruth Ricketts, 1423 West 5th, Marion, IN.

64 years, 3 months, 22 days.

Many thanks for stone photo, Karen, who first listed and graciously transferred memorial.
