Anyone know anything about these families ? Hi Came across this in the Wm Grimes letters on the Duplin Archive site , I have seen it but was not searching those surnames then :-(, I never did get Ciely Sloan's parents name , does anyone by chance have that info ? She married James Grimes and she died ca 1840 in Choctaw Co., Al. Sept. 5, 1941 Wm Grimes Letters Duplin Co., NCArchives. "You say, who lives near James(Grimes) of his old acquaintance? I will name some of them, Peter & Levia Watkins, Alex'r Keaton & family. Fed & Charles Hines, David Hooks widow, her three sons & three sons in law, Ned Williams, David Wright & John Stalllngs, John Phillips & John McCan (from the Grove), John Powell, David Bryant & Amos Waller. These three last married James wife sisters, John Winders also did, & William Sloan a brother of James (Grimes)wife. From Phillips down are all connected. James is living a widower with four children."
