Margaret “Maggie” Ragsdale Irons

  • Birth Mar 1861 Randolph County, Missouri, USA
  • Death 14 Feb 1945 Roswell, Chaves County, New Mexico, USA
  • Burial Belleville, St. Clair County, Illinois, USA
  • Memorial ID 73687442

My 2nd cousin 3x removed. The daughter of Julius Charles Ragsdale, Sr. & Mary Carlotta Reade; granddaughter of Charles Anderson & Casandra (Crisler) Ragsdale and unknown Reed/Reade's.

5th great-granddaughter of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale.

Married Wesley Irons, April 12, 1882 in Randolph Co., MO. Three known children:
Bessie M. (m William H. Dryden)
Bertha L. (m David Young Tomlinson, Jr.)
Beulah J. (m Joseph K. Nester)

About 83 years, 11 months, New Mexico Deaths, 1889-1945 (index). Note: Death Certificate says she is the daughter of Amanda Reed, however we believe this is stated because mother died shortly after her birth and father remarried.

September 3, 2015 mote from Vicki < >, "Obit on Margaret Irons does state she died of a heart attack at the home of her daughter Mrs. D. Y. Tomlinson in Roswell NM. Her body was brought back to Kurrus funeral home for burial at Mount Hope Cemetery. States he also leaves a daughter Mrs. W. H. Dryden, Hutchison, Kan. formerly of St Louis so I assume this is Bessie."
