I am the g-g-grandaughter of Francis Marion Grammer and Elizabeth Gillentine Rhyne. I am looking for information on Francis's siblings and parents.
This is a little of what I have. Don't take the following information as gospel, as this is still a work in progress for me; I haven't been able to verify all of it yet, but I believe it to be very accurate.
Elizabeth's [b. 1826-27Morgan Co, ALd. not known at this time] maiden name was actually Gillentine, the daughter of Richard Leake and Sidney Liana Stovall Gillentine.Elizabeth's first husband was Michael Rhyne[b. 1823 GA d. 2-1853 MS], son of Jacob and Sarah Hope Rhyne,with whom she had the following children: Robert C. Rhyne Sarah Rhyne Susan Rhyne (Martha? there is some confusion on her name) Michael Rhyne (Jr. I assume)
Elizabeth & Francis Marion [b. abt 1836 in, I believe, AL d. unknown at this time] married 11 Jan 1855 in Itawamba Co., MS and had the following children: Joseph R. (or Joel) Nancy M. Benjamin F. Francis Marion (Jr) my g-grandfather m. Tierna Pate John T.
I did find Francis and Elizabeth in the following census: 1860 Itawamba, MS pg 180 1870 Itawamba, MS pg 338 1880 Itawamba, MS pg 449A & B
I do know Francis had 1 more son, Riley, I just don't know by whom.I'm totally speculating here: Elizabeth dies first, Francis remarries, and he has at least one more child, Riley (possibly James Riley b. 22 Feb 1890 Booneville?, MS maybe Alcorn Co., MS).
I would like to connect with anyone who may have any information on the MS Grammer's. Thanks!
