"I seem to have a different Grime family all together. My great grandmother, Cora Grimes from New Lebanon, Indiana 12/07/1899-06/27/1988 and father Samuel born in 1849. It's a tough nut to crack, huh?"
"My g. grandfather states he was born in Alabama in 1831. I can find no record. He had a twin brother. They were orphaned. One story is their father got into an argument with a tenant and was killed. Don't know anything about their mother except…"

"Thank you for allowing me to join. I found a Talley on FTdna Family Finder who is my confirmed 4th cousin. He sent me information to help me expand my genealogy data base. My connection with Tally/Talley begins with Sarah marrying…"
Thanks for inviting me to add you as a friend. I'm excited to hear more about your Sarah Talley... I run the Talley DNA group and would love to have you join the email list. Anyone interested in the surname can do so. Maybe we have already tested a male in your Talley line....and you may be related to me...would love to know.
Hi Phillip ... sorry that I not just once, but TWICE, called you John on the most wanted board. Ugh!
I posted an item that was focused on when your John might have removed to Kentucky. You probably know or have more clues than I do.
The earlier census records I located suggested John might have had quite a family. Perhaps birth information of the older children give a better clue about when John's wife and children came to Kentucky? If we can find a family that "disappears" from the VA tax rolls about the time your John removes his family to KY or just after he appears on the KY tax rolls, it would provide at least a faint clue as to which of the VA families at we should look more closely. --GJ
Thank you for converting your comment to a challenge/discussion at the Most Wanted group. I posted a few comments to your thread today.
Since we have your challenge posted now as a threaded group "Discussion," one of us should probably delete the now extra item on the comment wall [NOT the Discussion]... just in case.
I can do that, if you'd prefer (so can you). I prefer not to delete anything from the group page without the member's knowledge/consent.
If you'd like me to make the deletion, will you comment back and let me know? --GJ
Welcome to the group, Most Wanted!
Thank you for posting a challenge. You may want to convert your comment to a discussion. See the link in the Getting Started section of the Most Wanted group page, and the link there for "Click here: Post your Most Wanted/Brick Wall/Broken Link Challenge "
There seems to be some technical advantages to posting as a Most Wanted discussion rather than as a Most Wanted comment.
In the mean time, welcome aboard and thank you for your support. --GJ
You did everything correct, sorry you didn't get my reply. The Gay group is already created and you can find it here http://www.genealogywise.com/group/gaysurname and the Thompson group can be found at http://www.genealogywise.com/group/thompsongenealogy. I do leave replies but sometimes I guess I delete the conversation too soon, I just get so many that I have to delete or else it gets carried away. Hope this helps with your Gay and Thompson groups.
