I am searching for the Rutherford, McDonald, Williams and Hamby surnames. The farthest back that I have been able to get with the Rutherford name is my great Grandfather which I believe his name was Harrison, probably from Tennessee sometime around 1870 to the early 1900's. There were 7 children, Robert, Will, Perry, Anna, Althea, Lula and Daisy.
The McDonald name was my mothers maiden name which I have been able to trace to my Great Grandfather. His name was Josiah McDonald born in 1833, died April 14, 1923. He married Susanna Bircher in 1854. They had 12 children named Dora, Rachel, Lucy, John, Jermiah, Eliza, James, Robert, Phintious (My Grandfather), Thomas, Howard and Alice. I am not sure what part of the country, but probably from either Ohio, Tennesse, or W. Virginia.

The Williams was my Grandmother's maiden name, Phintious McDonald's wife. Her name was Ivy Mytrle. She was born in W. Virginia on Nov 6 , 1866, died Jan 16, 1928. They were married on Dec 15, 1894 and had 8 children. Their names were Arthur, Dorothy, Sylvia, Howard, Nellie (My Mother), Emery, Mildred and Hubert.

The Hamby name I know very little about except that this was my Grandmother's maiden name on my fathers side. She was married to Robert Samual Rutherford on Aug 17, 1905 in Crandell, Tennessee. Her name was Zora Alice and was born in Tennessee on Apr 16, 1891. Died on Jan 28, 1929. Robert was born on Nov 18, 1892 and died Dec 7, 1958. He too was born in Tennessee. They had 7 children, Gertrude, Mattie, David (My father), Clarence, Perry, Daisy Pearl and Thurman.

Any leads or help would be very appreciated and will be very happy to exchange information.
