My father-in-law Groce Pratt is the great-grandson of Mary Ann Groce and Alonzo Montgomery. Mary Ann was the daughter of Jared Ellison Groce and Sarah Simmons. Alonzo built the house in Eastaboga (near Talladega)in 1857. We visited the old home place several years ago. (My husband and I live in Ala. just a couple of hours away.) I spent a lot of time in the family cemetary, taking photographs and recording grave marker info. My father-in-law is 88 and still very sharp and has lots of family stories. I have done a huge amount of research on the Groce family with the help of family in Texas. I would be happy to share.
