Liz:I'm a Groce from TX. You are right about Jared Ellison Groce. I can find no connection between us, but you need to follow him to Texas.The descendants became quite famous in TX.I think it gets really confusing because they named all sons Jared Ellison so birthdates are important in following.Believe they traveled thru MS then to TX settled in Navasota TX finally.Built several plantations,brought many slaves and the first cotton to TX.I'll see if I can find other references for you to check.I did not keep real good records on him as could find no connection between his Groce's and ours. Hope some of this helps.
