"I agree on all and have the 12th child as Nicholas R. Grindstaff, born 24 March 1880 and married Zilla "Zillie" Greenwell on 16 March 1899. Date of birth for him is from the WWI Draft Registration. He was in Carter County. I am also…"
I will do B/M/D look ups for these counties in Western NC: McDowell, Burke, Yancey, Mitchell & Rutherford. I will also make gravestone photos for these counties if you can supply the name of the cemetery. I also have the McDowell County Cemetery books that were completed in 1995 and will be happy to do a look up.Anita WagesNCSee More
This group was created for anyone who would like to add a link , or a tip for anything to do with genealogy. I really would like to get as many free tips , or sites as we could. However, I know there are some great pay sites out there for research.
This group was created for anyone interested in knowing what censuses are available around the world. Also when they were written ,what appeared on the censuses, where to get blank census forms, where to find census records, and how to read them.
"This site is very neat. It has been some time since I have even thought about the family research. It is great that we connected so quickly. Adrah my great-great grandmother married James Parker. They moved to TX from TN. They were not married in…"
"We have never been able to find any documents which give the name of our John's wife. I've researched this line for over 15 years. There is a lot of misinformation out there about him, mostly that he was married to Elizabeth Wiseman. We…"
"Ruby - I do have the info on William R. Grindstaff and Sarah Lowe but only have 11 children and would love to know who the 12th child is. The children I have are: John H.; Rebecca; James B.; Joseph G.; Thomas George; Phoebe; Martha Mahala; Rhodecia;…"
"This is not a direct ancestor, but a cousin. William R. Grindstaff, born 4 Oct 1835 Carter Co., TN; died 7 April 1905 Carter Co., TN; married 8 Oct 1854 in Johnson Co., TN to Sarah Lowe (1836-1905). They had twelve children."
I have been researching the Grindstaff family for many years - mostly in Western NC & Eastern TN. I would like to correspond with any Grindstaffs anywhere. I know that in the early years (between 1800-1840) some migrated out of Western NC and Eastern TN into Ohio, Missouri, Indiana and other states.Thanks,Anita WagesNorth CarolinaSee More
I am also researching the Western NC McCurry's. The McCurry's are my husband's mothers family so I am collecting data on all of them that I can find. I have that Washington McCurry was born about 1857 in Yancey County, NC. I…"
This site is very neat. It has been some time since I have even thought about the family research. It is great that we connected so quickly. Adrah my great-great grandmother married James Parker. They moved to TX from TN. They were not married in the 1850 census, I have not been able to find them in 1860 and by 1870 James has died in the Civil War and there are four children. Two girls and two boys. The oldest was a boy and then a girl, name is not coming to me at this time, but she is my great grandmother. She married Lucius Loring and they had three children. My grandmother, Susie, (Elizabeth) was about a year old when he died. None of these three women remarried. My grandmother married Felix Roberts Hall. They had two children. Robert Loring Hall and my mother, Mary Sue Hall born Nov 9 1916 and died Jan 5, 2001. Her father died when she was about 10. My grandmother did not remarry either. Adrah lived to be in her 90's. She died in ARK. When I learned of the Messer connection, I connected with Brenda Messer, a cousin in law. I went to KY a few years when there was a marker put at the burial site of Adrah's brother. Look forward to sharing information.
We have never been able to find any documents which give the name of our John's wife. I've researched this line for over 15 years. There is a lot of misinformation out there about him, mostly that he was married to Elizabeth Wiseman. We have proven that this was not our John. We have followed every John Blanton that was born around the time that he was born (1760-1761), but it's just not possible to figure out which John he was without further documents. If you will go to my page, there is a link to my website which has what we know of John's line. I'd be glad to look at any info that you have. Thanks!!
Our Blantons were in Arkansas for a few years before coming to TX in 1836. Before AR, they were in Walker Co., AL. We cannot prove where our John Blanton was before that, but we believe he was in TN, as several of his sons claimed to have been born there.
