Surname Files

The vital statistics are listed herein, but it’s not just about who begat whom.  It’s about where they lived, how they worshipped, and what their livelihood was.  I have tried to collect information on where these folks lived and the histories of those communities.  It was important for me to find out why they moved to certain places, and then what made them leave later on.  Not only was information collected on the war records of the menfolk — but their units and campaigns have been researched.  And there’s considerable data on what life was like for the women left at home during times of conflict.

Most of these families originated in Ireland or France.  Some originated in America, as Cherokee and Choctaw.  Most all lived ultimately in the South.
