Elizabeth died and Frances Marion Grammer married Melissa James.
My husband's g-grandfather was Francis Marion Grammer but, we do not know much about him.We think after reading the info provided by Susan Nass, we believe the son of Framcis Marion Grammer (James Riley Grammer) was adopted.
According to the census records, Melissa had already given birth to the children with the last name Alexander, and they are listed as grand neices and nephews.
Our family is still trying to solve this mystery within the family tree.
