Familytree Maker software messed up the birth order, but I think everyone is here. The post lost some of the fomatting, too, so I hope you can follow how the children and grandchildren of Philip Raiford migrated from South Carolina to Mississippi and Louisiana and filed claims against his estate in Autauga, Alabama. I have more descendants at my tree, but report was partly corrupted so I will not post here. Link to Philip Raiford at my tree. Some documents are posted, but have more to scan and add.
