My name is Diann Kiester-Gentis and my grandmother was Ella Elizabeth Ragains, daughter of James W Ragains and grandaughter of Thomas A Ragains and Margaret Trout. My grandmother married Charles August Kiester in Colorado Spring, Colorado in 1920. I did a small booklet for the family reunion in 1993 (?) and have collected a lot of information on the Ragains/Kiester family.
Thomas A Ragains is as far as I can officially document in this family. I would look forward to hearing from other Ragains families.
