By this date you may already have the information you were looking for in 2004. The Henry Grantham you were looking for is most probably the 2nd husband of my husbands great grandmother, Annie Belle WELCH. The children you are interested in must be by a wife before he was married to (? 2nd wife) Margarette c1998 and before he was married to (? 3rd wife) Annie Belle WELCH HAYS/HAYES, widow of Levi G. HAYS/HAYES, Jr.

I have a copy of the 1900 Dorman & Vidette, Precinct #7, Crenshaw Co., AL Census, Roll T623_11, Pg. 25B, Enumeration District 47:

468/470 - Grantham, Henry, head, W, M, b. Nov 1850, 49, md. 2 yrs.
-Grantham, Margarette, wife, W, F, b. June 1882, 18, md. 2 yrs., mother of 1 child, number of children living 1
-Grantham, Addie Belle, daughter, W, F, Aug 1887, 12, Single
-Grantham, Cleveland, son, W, M, Jan 1889, 11, Single
-Grantham, Annie May, daughter, W, F, Apr 1899, 1, Single

From this Census I assume he was married prior to being married to Margarette and had Addie Belle GRANTHAM and Cleveland GRANTHAM with a previous wife. Annie May GRANTHAM is his daughter with Margarette.

I also have a copy of the 1910 Blue Spring Road, Barnes Cross Roads, Precinct #13, Dale Co., AL Census, Roll 10, Pg. 216A, Enumeration District 92, Part 3, Line 7:

100/103 - Grantham, Henry, head, M, W, 66, ??Widowed/Married, b. in FL, father b. in FL. mother b. in FL, Farmer
- Grantham, Ada, daughter, F, W, 26, ??Single, b. in AL, father b. in FL, mother b. in Unknown, Farm labors
- Grantham, Annie Mae, daughter, F, W, 10, Single, b. in AL, father b. in FL, mother b. in AL, Farm labors

Henry Grantham's death date is recorded in "Alabama Deaths, 1908-59 Record":
Name: Henry Granthan [sic]
Death Date: 1923
Death County: Dale
Volume: 33
Roll: 2
Page #: 16342

In June I talked with several GRANTHAMs in Dothan, AL trying to find information on my husband's great grandmother, Annie Belle WELCH, who married (1) Levi Grier HAYS/HAYES, Jr. and after Levi died in 1897 married (2) Henry GRANTHAM. She had resided with Levi in Pike Co. and then moved to Dale Co. She died in Dale Co. in Jan. 1929. As far as I know Annie Belle WELCH and Henry GRANTHAM had the following children:

1. Gladys GRANTHAM (7 Nov 1907-13 Nov 1931)
3. ?Faxon "Jack" GRANTHAM (7 Nov 1910-25 Jul 1937)
4. Henry Harold GRANTHAM
5. Mamie Lou "Mary Lou" GRANTHAM
6. Joyce Annell "Ann" GRANTHAM - married Jack KORNEGAY and they resided in Dothan, AL. As far as I can tell, Jack is dead and Ann has probably died within the last 8 years.

I hope I'm not barking up the wrong tree on my quest to find the correct "Henry Grantham". Surely there wasn't another one in Dale Co. about the same age that Annie Belle WELCH HAYS/HAYES married.

Do you know any GRANTHAMs who would have information on Annie Belle WELCH (HAYS/HAYES) GRANTHAM? I particularly want to know when & where she was born and information about her parents and their ancestors.

I will also try to send this request to your personal e-mail address. I would certainly appreciate any help -
