I am Ruffin Ragan's 4x great granddaughter. I can not find anything about his parents. I have found that he died in Jan 13th 1962,
He was in the 24th regiment of the confederate army company H.
He married Sarah Gillis Ramsey (though I believe she went by a middle name of Catherine)
They had one son William T who married Sarah Caroline Ragan.
They shared the same last name but have not found them to be related.
Most of the Ragans starting with William T are buried at Maplewood cemetery in Durham NC but have no headstones.
Anyway Im new to the genealogy thing so not sure how to go about finding out Ruffins parents names. Have you found anything since you started this thread.
