Thanks for your reply.I did not get any more information on William.All I know is that he was a deaf mute and that there are records of the Estate settlement ofWilliam Grimes in the Probate records in Pike County Ill.Do you by any chance have copies of those probate records?
Would be most interested in excahnging information on the Grimes line.My husband also comes through Henry, who had a son Nathaniel, who had a son Thomas J., who had a daughter Margaret Ellen, who had a son who is the father of my husband.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Carol
PS Also saw your post about the change of surname of Grimes to possibly Graham etc. in Ireland on the Ireland Genealogy Forum.Any more info on that?
