    THE RATLIFF FAMILY

    Abraham Ratliff, a son of Moses Ratliff, who had come to Buncombe County from Rowan near the close of the eighteenth century, moved to Haywood County in 1810 and settled in Beaverdam township near where Canton is now situated. He was a farmer in his new home, but in about 1820 he sold out his possesions and came to Waynesville township and bought a place in the valley of the east prong of Raccoon Creek, which has since been called Ratliff Cove. He reared a family of three sons and four daughters, as follows: Jeremiah, James, Albert, Mary, Rachel, Elizabeth, and Milie.
    Jeremiah married Abigail Chambers, a daughter of Elihu Chambers. They reared a family of four children, as follows: Eliza, who married Benjamin Edwards of the Bethel section; J Newton, who married Mary Rogers; Margaret, who married Noah Francis; and Polly, who married Dow Evans.
    Albert Ratliff, another son of Abraham Ratliff, married Sarah Patton, and reared five children, as follows: Moses, who married Margaret Rogers, and died in prison at Camp Douglas during the Civil War; McCon, also a Confederate soldier, married Elmira Jones and lived in Ratliff Cove; James joined Captain Turpin's company and died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas; Jeremiah, also a Confederate soldier, served through the period of the war and returned to the county where he became a leader in politics. He was elected clerk of court and re-elected, serving several terms. He married Puss Battle. Charity married James Welch. All of the sons of Albert Ratliff were soldiers in the Confederate army. Two of them lot their lives during the struggle.
    McCon Ratliff was perhaps the most distinguished son of Albert Ratliff. He enlisted in Capt. Sam Bryson's company of the sixteenth North Carolina regiment, went with his outfit to Virginia, was assigned to the famous Ransom brigade, engaged in many hard fought battles around Richmond and Petersburg, served the full four years, and never missed a day from his post of duty, returned to Haywood County in the spring of 1865, and was with Col W H Thomas when the last fight took place at Waynesville on May 6, 1865.
