I am still researching for lost family. Anyone working on the Ratliff, Sheppard, Thompson, Belcher families of
Southern West Virginia I would appreciate a reply to learn more about this family. I can't seem to be able to link any information that I have found together to make a clear statement of proof of the information that I have obtained. Mainly due to the fact the families would either use their first name on records and on others they would use their middle names, this caused a great confusion when doing the study.
Appreciate any help or leads.
