Annette, I think your Sarah Ward "Sally" Ellington Grayson was the daughter-in-law of my ggg grandmother, Rachel McCORD (or McCOOL), who was, I believe, the Mother of Geo. Washington Grayson (b. l803 KY). Rachel was b. l784 either in eastern PA or western MD, and my information is that she marr. Geo. Washington Grayson (Sr.) and had her first child by him at the age of l5 in l802 (a girl). Their son, Geo. Washington Grayson, was b. in l803. Then in Feb. l804, Rachel married John WALKER in Greenup Co. KY, bringing these two young children into the marriage. Can you tell me anything more about Geo. Washington Grayson's purported marriage to young Rachel which apparently lasted only from l801-2 until Dec. l803? I'm looking for Rachel's parents, her exact date of birth and marriage to Grayson and why it lasted such a short time.
