Ratcliffe Cemetery

Williamson Co. TN

My great, great grandfather was Gideon Ratcliffe.  He came to Williamson County in 1827 and died there in 1854.  I am attaching a copy of Gideon's Will,   his Bible and a copy of the burials in the Ratcliffe Cemetery (which is in Williamson County).   I would be glad to correspond with anybody seeking information about this family.  I am: Melissa Ratcliffe Crow and my e-mail address is melissadianne@hotmail.com .
