  • Notes 
    • (Source: roger@RoCeMaBra.com; 5/5/2012); Another reference (Kentucky, Statewide - Marriages early to 1800) indicates "Samuel Grimes m. Elizabeth Speer in Shelby Co., KY 10 Aug 1815."

      I've looked at various references for Samuel Grimes and Sarah Gobel/Elizabeth Spears, and come to these conclusions (names and dates from Chuck Elledge's "Elledge Family Tree" site):

      Probably child of Susan Goble

      Sarah "Sally" GRIMES b. 17 Jun 1811 d. 2 Jul 1895 m. James BENNETT, Sr. b. 31 Dec 1819 d. 27 Oct 1891

      Probably children of Elizabeth Spears

      John GRIMES b. 5 Apr 1819 d. 10 Oct 1899
      m. Mary SANDS b. 1820 d. 3 Dec 1859
      m. Zeporah SANDS b. 25 Jan 1825 d. 29 Sep 1883
      m. Susannah BROWN b. 1824 d. Y
      Barbara GRIMES b. 1820 d. 2 Jul 1911
      m. William BENNETT b. 5 Oct 1823 d. Y
      m. Henry F. ROBBINS d. Bef 1841
      Leonard GRIMES b. 1825 d. 1870-1880 m. Philena J. MONK b. 1831 d. Y
      Elizabeth GRIMES b. 1826 d. Y m. Jesse Edward MORGAN b. 1823 d. Y
      Benjamin A. GRIMES b. 1827-1828 d. Y m. Menerva PARKS b. 1834 d. 1909
      Samuel GRIMES b. 1830 d. 1913 m. Arrabelle HUNT b. 1832 d. Y
      Abraham GRIMES b. 1831 d. Y m. Sarah PRUETT b. 1833 d. Y
      Nancy GRIMES b. 1832-1834 d. Y m. George Washington BENNETT b. 17 May 1827 d. 1912
      Katherine "Kitty" GRIMES b. 1835 d. 1910
      m. Harrison BENNETT b. 22 May 1832 d. 21 Jun 1858
      m. John Clark WELLMAN b. 1832-1836 d. Y
      Dicie GRIMES b. 1837 d. 1919 m. Alonzo BENNETT b. 10 Dec 1836 d. 1912
      So the math is correct (six sons married six daughters), when it come to Samuel Grimes, but only one child is Susan's; the remainder appear to be Elizabeth's.

      Given birth dates from the Elledge Family Tree site, Sarah "Sally" Grimes seems to be the only child of Samuel and Susan. All others were born well after 1815. There is an eight year gap between Sarah and John. This raises questions that I have not yet been able to answer. Did Susan Goble die before 1815? Did they divorce?
