Frances Ragsdale
Hi Mike,
Contacting you regarding

  Elizabeth Clark Beard (1788 - 1862)*

Whom you added her as the daughter of of this
Frances "Fannie" Ragsdale Ridgeway
Which is the wrong Frances Ragsdale who married Benjamin Clark. The Frances Ragsdale that is Elizabeth Clark Beards Mom was a Twin. She had a Twin brother Drury Ragsdale
Children of Capt Drury Ragsdale 1720-1950 who was killed during the Revolutionary War. Which is Documented in the Will that I found.

Virginia County Records, X Chesterfield County Wills. (By W. G. Stanard.)Name: Ragsdale Drury Date: November 17, 1749 Date: June 24, 1750 Legatees, wife Name: Margaret , unborn child; brother, Name: Joseph Ragsdale . His Lunenburg land to be sold. (To his family belonged Name: Drury Ragsdale , of Virginia, who was a captain in the First Continental Artillery in the Revolutionary War.)Drury's wife had twins she was with child when his will was read.My comment on Drury's son Drury and daughter Frances!

This is what I thought that he was a twin. Twins runs in our family so this makes since when I found the document Drury's Mom Margaret was with child when it spoke of his Father's will in 1750!!!! I kept finding that both Frances and Drury both where born in 1750.

Now if you look at the dates of childbirth of the children and where my Frances Ragsdale Ridgeway is buried you will see that it is almost impossible for her to be Elizabeth's Mom. My 4th Great Grandfather went to visit hHi Mike,

RE: William Drake #12676868
Hi Mike, better late than never I guess! You wrote me about William Drake being my 6th great grandfather. No, I had that wrong. He was my 9th great grandfather. Oops!
