Reddin was the son of Daniel and Nancy Rasberry. He married the former Martha M. Garrett on September 10, 1833 in Greene Co., AL.

He and Martha had nine children, John D., Mary N. Elizabeth, Reuben H., Frances Evaline, William C., Margaret J., James A., Sidney Aloada P., and Julia Annie Rasberry.

Reddin Y. Rasberry was born in the State of Georgia, but while quite young came with his parents to Alabama, and was there reared to manhood; was baptized in the year 1839 at Mashulaville, MS, by Mr. Holbrooks; was first in the Mount Pisgah Assoc. in 1841; was liberated to preach by the Sulphur Springs church, (now called Zion,) about the year 1843, and preached as licentiate in Neshoba, Kemper, Newton, and Lauderdale Counties; was ordained to the full work of the gospel ministry in 1845, and soon became active in ministerial work, visiting destitute places, and serving churches in pastoral work. Of anactive turn of mind, a lively exhorter, and ever ready to do the best he could, he soon rose to fine reputation, and entered a career usefulness in his holy calling. Many yet live that will remember his labors and success at Liberty and Hickory Grove, in Kemper County, and Oktibbeha, and Zion Hill, in Lauderdale County, and Mount Pleasant, in Newton County. For a time, he labored at Enterprise, MS. Afterwards moving to Mobile, he labored in the city and other localities near with great acceptance. The war came, and with it trouble and confusion. Leaving Mobile, he once more made his home in Lauderdale County, and ended his useful life in December, 1864, near Hickory Grove Church, where he had gone to again take charge of that church, where in early life he had been so blessed. He died in the fifty-second year of his age and about the twenty-second year of his ministry. He and his dear companion sleep in the Hickory Grove cemetery.
