John W Robeson later married Amanda ? and moved to Madison Co., TN as last recorded on the 1910 Census. Any information or guidance on locating my gggrandfather and family would be most appreciated.

I would like to communicate with anyone who knows of or may be researching Grinage ancestry. A number of Grinages relocated in Texas in the mid 1800s who were born SOMEWHERE in Tennessee!
Joshua Grinage married Margaret Woodrum in 1867, Edmond Grinnage married Nancy Bradberry in 1855 and Martha Grinnage married Thomas Gates in 1848. Joshua, Edmond and Martha were born in TN as well as most of their spouses according to censuses! All settled in Panola County, TX. A number of Woodrum families lived 'next door'.
Thanks so much!

Looking for info. on Thomas PHILLIPS, b. 1788 or 1791 (in South Carolina?), he married Elizabeth before 1815 (b. 1792 or 1797 in Georgia). They settled in Overton County before 1840 but I'm not sure where they were before that.

There is a Thomas Phillips on the White County 1820 Census, but I'm not sure if this is the same one or if any of the other Phillips listed (David, John, and Lewis) are related. Anyone with info. on this family, I'd love to hear from you. Any clues or help is very greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
