COLLINS, RATLIFF, SOLSBERY posted by Carla Woolley on Friday, May 26, 2000

Rosemary - I have just read your posting in the Runnels County query site and am responding to you regarding the name of Agnes RATLIFF. Do you happen to know any more about the grandparents of Amanda Jane COLLINS SOLSBERY and in particular the RATLIFF's? The reason for my asking, is that I am researching RATLIFF family lines who came to Williamson County, Texas(early 1850's) via Crawford County, Arkansas, possibly Missouri before that, Illinois and back into Virginia in the late 1700's. It is very possible that your Agnes RATLIFF may be related to this family line. I would like to hear back from you on this matter. You may contact me directly @ my e-mail address -- sleazyrider@juno.com. Thanks! Carla Woolley

My grandparents, James Wilson RAINWATER and Ida Elizabeth MONTGOMERY, married in Runnels Co 2 March 1903. J.W. was s/o William H. RAINWATER and Sarah J. HENDERSON. He had siblings Edward (Ed) RAINWATER William (Wiley)RAINWATER Victoria RAINWATER (married a HARDEGREE) Ida was d/o Pleasant Lafayette MONTGOMERY and Mary Lucrecia STRAWN WICKER. She had siblings Lloyd G. STRAWN, Margaret A. STRAWN (married J. D. LANE) Adrian H. MONTGOMERY David Oliver MONTGOMERY Joseph MONTGOMERY Loreeta MONTGOMERY (married Arthur WILKERSON) Buelah MONTGOMERY Jessie MONTGOMERY (married a HAMBRICK) J. W. and Ida lived in Crews from abt 1900 until 1918. He owned a General Store and was Postmaster abt 1910-1915. In 1912, a Typhoid epidemic killed his mother, his first-born son James Darius, and other family members. About that time he became a licensed pharmacist (Druggist). In 1918 he moved his wife and children to Polytechnic, Tarrant Co, now a part of Ft. Worth. I am in contact with a daughter of Ed RAINWATER, but feel there are probably cousins remaining in Runnels Co. I know I have MONTGOMERY relatives in the San Angelo area, but have not been able to connect with them. Would love to hear from anyone with information, memories, or connections to these families. Whatever happened to the HARDEGREE and WILKERSON relatives?
