Do you have the children's names of Lewis S Ratcliff and Amelia? I believe one should be Alvin Ratcliff who had a son named Lewis S Ratcliff (my father). (I had never heard if he was named for someone, but looks like he might have been.) I had also heard my grandfathers family was from Ark. which would make sense and they operated a sawmill.
