I'm not sure of the connection between the Alabama Grammer families (James, James G., Robert, Joseph, John, Andrew Jackson, William Calvin, and Francis Marion), but given the census records, etc. there seems to be some kind of connection.Here's an idea I'm tossing out and would like any feedback:
There is a James Grammer age 40-50 in the 1830 Federal Census in Tuscaloosa County Alabama with the 8 individuals (6 male and 2 female) living in his household all 20 or younger.Based on this and later census records, here is a possibility for the names of those 8 individuals (most likely siblings):

My ancestor is the James G. Grammer born abt 1810.He is the James that married Elizabeth Grizzle.
I've seen speculation that Andrew Jackson Grammer is the son of James Grammer and I've seen speculation that some of the above Grammer men are siblings.So I was thinking, maybe....it's just an idea, but what do you think?
