Martha Jane Pafford is my great-grandmother.
Have Sarah Jane Raines-Pafford's death certificate which lists her father as, Mereday Raines. It may be Meredith Raines. No mother is listed.
Don't know if this is any help, but you might find something you need here.
Haven't worked on the Raines-Paffords for some time.
