Linda - I am reading my way through the Grounds GenForum.You seem to be very knowledgeable about the Grounds family, part of whom went to northwest Louisiana in and around what became Claiborne Parish in 1828.
I am interested in where this family lived PRIOR to the move to northwest Louisiana, and the year and possible reason for the move. Do you know?
We have Grounds in Houston County, Texas which is across the Trinity River from Madison County.We have Weirs/Wares in early Republic of Texas History.
Is this group connected to the Maddens and William P. Robison who can be found in Hempstead County, Arkansas in the early 1820's?
Thank you for your time and attention to my request for information.
