Scott, I have been helping Margot Johnson with the family line you are working on.It appears that you are working on the same thing.I have David Murphy Griswold's line quite a ways back and found hismarriage date to Missouri anna in Girard, Russell, Alabama and I have her marriage to Washington G. Mote.I have amassed quit a bit of information on his family as well as David's, but I can find nothing on Missouri Anna.I though that I had found her in Hickman, Tennesse, but tha Anna was the bride of John Gram, the son of Samuel Lowerey graham.
If you haven't found what you are looking for, let me know I have 5 pages of family and 57 pages of notes regarding the family of Washington G. Mote and info on the Civil War.He was born in 1842 in Harris County, GA. and I found a note that she was born in Georgia and that both her parents were as well.Then both families eveidently moved to Girard in Russell County, Alabama, near Mobile. I also found where his and Missouri Anna's daughter, Annie Lee married a Thoms Hyrum Dennis also born in Georgia, late was on the City Council in Girard and even later in the State Legislature.I have both his parents and grand parents and mention that she was the daughter of Missouri Anna Mote.
She married Washington G. Mote on 15 Nov 1870 in Russell Count, Alabama found in the Russell Count, Al Marriages 1855-1895 Page 584 LDS Film #1287157
Then she married David Murphy Griswold on Oct 9 1897 in Russell County, AL same film# but the book was Mariages 1873-1886 Page 420. His father was Simon Mote, his mother was Rebecca and he had.
On David's family I have both his parents inforamtion as well as his grandparents on both sides with pictures of Stephen and Sarah Griswold, a picture of his home and some stories about both sets of ancestors.
I also found on one of the cesus records in Muscogee, Ga a William Brooks.I am not sure whether it is one of your Williams or not, but I ahve been searching for the death records and grave sites for William Christopher and his wife, or is it William Christie and his wife.
It's about 1:00 A.M. and I'm getting a little ditzy, but if you need anything, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see if I can help you with this, if you don't already have it.
