Ragan, McGarrah, Breedlove
submitted by Linda Ragan Giles

I am trying to locate information on the parents and siblings of my greatgreatgreatgrandparents James and Elizabeth "Decker" Ragan. My greatgreatgrandfather married Martha McGarrah, daughter of James and Elizabeth "Croxton" McGarrah on December 25, 1855 in Sumter County. Sarah Jane Ragan married Wm.J. Roberts in November of 1855. Known siblings are Sarah Jane; Alfred Asa; W.L.(died in 1862 and buried in Ragan Cemetery in Rankin County, MS); Mary Elizabeth (married Samuel Washington Jones); James Carol (1st married Loula Crail); Lucinda. On my mothers side the Mason family from Talbot County, GA; Hennrietta Mason married Leonard P. Breedlove. Hennrietta died May 30, 1881 in Sumter County, GA. The McGarrah family lived (I am guessing) on the border of Sumter and Marion County.
