The Ragland name is one that you hear often in LaRue County. But few people know how deep those roots grow.
Gideon Ragland relocated to Center Point, what is now Magnolia from Virginia in December 1808. He purchased 1,000 acres of land for $1,000 partly with monies from a Revolutionary War grant. This was the same month that Thomas Lincoln purchased the farm at Sinking Springs, mere months before the birth of Abraham Lincoln.
