I link to your Grigsby Appleton line indirectly, but have recently been contacted by someone who is a direct descendant and is very interested in learning more. Our link is Harriet A. Cardon who married Robert Haynes Appleton. Harriet was the daughter of Christopher Columbus Cardon who was our grgrgrandfather, our line being through her brother Hugh Walker Cardon. I have found several census listings for Appletons in and around Cherokee and Etowah counties. I look forward to sharing information with you. My email is email@example.com. Hope to hear from you soon!
