Susan, Thanks for the info. At least I now have a little more to go on looking for who Emily C. Grubbs parents were.
I have a Peter & Mary Grubbs (relatives) in Simpson Co., MS. who had a daughter, Emily C. Grubbs b. 1859 in Simpson Co., MS. Peter Grubbs was born 1819 LA. His parents were Gilbert & Elizabeth Sandifer Grubbs of Pike Co. (now Walthall) MS. Peter is listed in the census as being born in both LA. and MS. Maybe Emily C. Grubbs born abt. 1868 is my Emily who was born 1859.
Benjamin b. 1824 Pike Co., MS. & Ellen Gartman Grubbs had two children who were in Ryan, Jefferson Co. OK. Benjamin & Peter Grubbs were brothers. Children were Mary Grubbs married to James McCain Hughes and James Monroe Grubbs married to Julia F. Jones.
The Hughes and Grubbs are buried in Ryan Cemetery. Ellen Gartman Grubbs also buried there.
It may be that Benjamin & Ellen Grubbs were the parents of Emily C. Grubbs b. 1866. I will keep looking. Thanks again.
