Much of what is written here is nothing more that an oral history put onto paper. I am grateful to my cousin Cleta Stuart-Porterfield for having the foresight and determination to pull together most of this information and published it as the Martin Family Stories. I have noted any additions or deletions to her original work so as not to detract from its quality. Each story has links to the people referenced and to other genealogy related web sites.

I have just completed Southern Roots Volume 1, The Ancestors and Descendants of Hubert Munsey and Maud Ulan Cranford Martin. It is the family history if my Martin, Cranford, Norton, Correll, McKnight, and Phillips ancestors. It contained 630 pages of information and took me over a year to complete. Sample sections are available for viewing on the Martin Genealogy page.

It will include my Jackson, Parish, and Thompson ancestors and my wife's Haile, Logan, Houston, and Turner ancestors. I am currently gathering material for this volume now. I hope to have it completed by next year. I still need assistance in the following areas.
