In 1832 Andrew Jackson employed the architect, Joseph Reiff, who was also the architect for the Hermitage, to draw plans for a residence for A. J. Donelson. The house was located on the Lebanon Pike, adjoining the Hermitage Church, and only a short distance from the Hermitage. At that time A. J. Donelson was private secretary to President Jackson. A. J. Donelson, named for Andrew Jackson, was the son of Samuel Donelson, but, when a very small boy, was brought to the Hermitage and was reared and educated by General Jackson. He was educated at the University of Nashville and at the United States Military Academy. He held with distinction many positions of high honor, among them minister to Prussia, and was nominated, in 1856, candidate for vice president of the United States, on the Native American ticket, with Millard Fillmore for President.

128 ?Information from census and other records. The widow Ragan was enumerated with her children in the June 1900 census with a boarder named West Cary. They married in Oct. 1900.??According to the Bumpass Cemetery memorial ceremony biography by James L. Florence, Jr., Rosa died in the early 1900s [possibly from childbirth in her second marriage?] and her Ragan children were dispersed. William and Dorsey were taken in by Sam (a kinsman of Louis Ragan, possibly of Rosa, too) and Martha Morris and their surnames were changed to Morris (shown in 1910 census). Dorsey was surnamed Reagan at his marriage in 1938. William was surnamed Morris on Sam's death certificate as well as his own but his father's name was correctly reported on that document. Annie married a cousin and died young. Jim Ruffin eventually married in 1911. I don't know what became of Rufus. James Wesley Carey remarried in 1907.??Rosa Reagan is buried in the Bumpass ("Fighting John Bumpass") family cemetery in Allensville, Person Co., NC, along with her first husband, Louis. The memorial ceremony was for the placement of a marker at their graves on 20 October 2012. RAGAN, Rosa “Rosie” Belle (I2948)
 
129 ?Lewis Ragan was enumerated as a 3 yr old in his parents' Person Co. household in 1870.??A 14 yr old Lewis Reagen was enumerated in his parents' 1880 household and he married Rosa in 1886. He died before 1900 as Rosa was a widow in that census. He is buried at the Bumpass family cemetery in Allensville, Person Co., along with Rosa. A ceremony for the placement of a marker at their graves was held on 20 October 2012. REAGAN, Louis “Jake” (I1613)
 
130 ?Notes below are from research by Anne Burton Washburn:

I am placing James Ragan and possible siblings with this Amey UNK Ragan based on preponderance of evidence. There were many cousin marriages and it is still unknown who Amey's husband was. It seems likely that he was a son of Jesse Ragan or possibly even Jesse himself but research continues.??Amey Ragan (40 to 50) was HOH in the 1840 Person Co. census. She was living next door to David Wilkerson (per Charlie Rathbun, son of John Wilkerson (1759-1846) and Sarah Donaldson of Person Co., NC. This John Wilkerson (1759-1844) of Person Co. NC was a son of John Wilkerson (1730-1806) of Lunenburg Co., VA, Granville Co., NC & Wilkes Co., GA......and a probable brother to David Wilkerson Sr. (ca. 1735-1819) of Granville Co., NC) and near Abraham Eastwood. Abraham's wife Sally Ragan was a d/o Jesse & Mary Wilkerson Ragan. There were one son under 5 (James T.?), one son 5 to 10 (Ruffin?), one daughter 5 to 10 (Rebecca?), one daughter 15 to 20 (Mariah?), and two females 40 to 50. Ages in the censuses are approximated, many of these folks were illiterate.??James Ragan (14) was enumerated in the household of Amey Ragan (52) in the 1850 Person Co. census. With them were Rebecca (16) and Mariah (23).??It is possible that Amey (45, obviously incorrect) was enumerated in the 1860 Person Co. census with Rebecca (32), Mariah (30), and several young children, Lincy, 5, Friday (2), John (6), Thomas (3) and Nancy (1). 
UNKNOWN, Amey (I2894)
 
131 ?The only reference to Nannie Ramsey's age and her alleged parents' names is on her 1890 Danville, VA, marriage certificate. Her name also appears on Will Burton's Social Security application and on Clyde Burton's death certificate. It is probable by preponderance of evidence that her mother was Susan Ramsey but her father's name is still unknown. Autosomal DNA tests strongly confirm a recent Ramsey genetic link. Research continues.

132 A 10 month old Charles C. Ray was enumerated in the 1870 Patrick Co. census with Martha A. Ray (50), Martha A. (28), Louisa (17), Sarah A. (15), Ezanie [?] (13), James A.

133 A 14 yr old Ninah Robertson was enumerated in the 1860 Person Co. household of John and Mary Eastwood, same page as her sister Laurel who was living with William Eastwood and his family. Robertson, Penina (I13495)
 
134 A 16 yr old Charles was enumerated with his parents, William and Lucy, in the 1850 Henry Co., VA, census.

A marriage between Charles & Mary E. Koger is recorded at familysearch.org on 27 Nov 1856 in Patrick Co., VA. Charles (36) was enumerated with his mother, Lucy (67), in the 1860 Henry Co., VA census. Their ages are about 10 years off. A Mary E. Davis (26) was enumerated elsewhere in Henry Co. I don’t know if this is the same individual.

Seventy yr old Lucy Davis was enumerated with Charles (36), Sarah (26), and their 1 yr old daughter, Eliza J., in the 1870 Martinsville, Henry Co., VA, census.

In the 1880 Martinsville, Henry Co., VA, census, C. W. was 36, Sarah E. was 36, Eliza J. 11, William H. 9, Mary L. 8, and Sallie E., 6.

146 A death certificate for a Mollie Burton Koonts whose father was Daniel (mother's name unknown) is likely this Mollie.
