My gg grandfather was Joe Ratliff, younger brother of Peter Ratliff. Joe had a son, Richard Wade Ratliff, with Pricy Justice and lived on the Meathouse FOrk of Upper Johns Creek in Pike Co., KY. No one in my immediate family seemed to know what happened to Peter. I think Peter & Joe are shown in the 1870 Pike CO census in Richard's household.
So I was surprised to see that Peter & Joe's mother died in Pike Co in 1911. Any information you have would be appreciated.
Also I have had trouble establishing who Richard's father was (Peter & Joe's grandfather). There is a Tazwell Co VA court order from around 1828 that says Richard was the orphan son of Silas Ratliff and that he and some siblings were being placed in the care of a guardian.
