Iam looking for my great-grandfather, John William Ratcliffe. He was born in Max Meadows, Wythe County, VA. He died in 1886 and was married to Ella Owens. They had 3 children, Dexter Stone (my grandfather), Ettie Frances and Sidney Paul.
His father was Thomas William Ratcliffe. There were 4 children, John Thomas, Charety, Kembleton & Ella Whitt. I have no more info on him or his wife.

In searching court house records in Wythe County, there are no Ratcliffe's in that time frame. He is not listed in Pulaski County records.

Our first Ratcliffe reunion was held August 1996 and another August 1997. Our next is scheduled for August 1999 and I do hope to have lots of info to present at that time. Any help would be appreciated. I'm new at this and have been collecting pictures and stories for about 2 years. It sure is fun, but sometimes not so fruitful.

I will certainly share what I have with other Ratcliffe's.
