This page is designed to aid in the search for the surnames of my family. If you are involved in a search for MARTIN, PARISH, JACKSON, CRANFORD, NORTON, or PHILLIPS, please use the menu system to find specific information.
These surnames all have southern origins. The following states are represented: Arkansas, Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee. They served in the military during every major conflict of this nation from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf Conflict (Desert Storm), including thirteen who fought for the Confederate States of America (CSA) during the Civil War . There has been a migration to the West, specifically Washington and California during the latter part of this century, but the vast majority still remain in the south. Please browse these pages, read the stories, view the photos, and enjoy yourself. I welcome you to our family and hope you find a link.
