Hi, Christine - this is my other brick wall line - Sanford McClendon, s/o Simon. Sanford and Sarah Bizzell had son, Bizzell (b.abt 1797 and spelled differently on every census)and he and wife Sarah Ann Unknown spent the rest of their lives here. Sanford didn't come here alone - there was also a Dennis and a Burwell, who didn't stay. Regarding the love deed of 113 acres to James Dawson Grimes and wife, I would love to know the connection between him and Bizzell! Maybe his wife, Sarah Ann was a Dawson or Grimes?? On the deed she is Laura (?) but all censuses show Sarah Ann. Ages are not consistent, but I feel she was b. in 1799, and her will was probated here in Oct 1871, but the fee is $25 for a copy, which may yield nothing. I think her age on the 1870 census is in error, and should be 70, not 80. She's in the Smith household. Bizzell is gone - yet there is a land purchase in 1896. This whole family is can of worms, and I have lots of pieces yet to be connected.
