Ragland Ancestors

Thanks to research today on, I found the name of my great-great-great-great-grandfather Ragland.  I have long known that Winiford (Winney) Ragland, married to Edward Tilman Branch (born 1798 in Virginia) was my paternal great-great-great-grandmother.  But I had not been able to determine the names of her parents.  Today, I found those names - John W. Ragland and Elizabeth Smith.  John, born in 1788 in Newberry, South Carolina, married Elizabeth, born 1790, about 1810 in Newberry, South Carolina.  Their marriage produced nine children, including my great-great-great-grandmother, Winiford, born in 1814.  Winiford's siblings were John W. Jr. (1808), Arthur S. (1811), Sara (1814), William A. (1825), Robert W. (1826), Eliza (1832), Mary V. (1835), and Julia V. (1840).
