The info that I have does not answer all of your questions but I am glad to share what I do have. James K (Kenney ?) Grose 1830 (mo and day unknown) born at Lockwood, Nicholas Co. WV & married Sarah Jane Schoonover b-1839 and d after 1886. Marriage date was 12-26-1856, Nicholas Co Marriage Records, his age 26 hers 17.
Sarah Jane was da of William Schoonover 1814 and d abt1888 and Susan McDaniel 1814 or 1815 and married 2-8-1838 in Kanawha County (see page 52 Kan Co marriages from 1816 to 1843 by Rev. G A Burgess. I haven't searched death records in Kan Co for William and Susan but do know they had moved to area now known as Kanawha City, where he owned property near the time of his death. I also have copy of deed found in grandmothers trunk where he deeded to Sarah Jane his daughter for love and affection and to the heirs of her body begotten forever. He made Hiram Lewis trustee of this transaction. I believe he was transferring his property in preparation of death. He also disposed of Clay Co property about the same time, to other children and I believe transferred one tract without the signature or mark of Susan. This leads me to believe Susan passed prior to death of William.
Jacob McKendry Grose b 8-25-1862 ( I have seen others listing as b 11-25-1862)and died 5-29-1945 first married Mary Ella Schoonover his first cousin 8-22-1886 per Clay County Ct Hs rcds. One da Lucy Florence Grose b 9-17-1887 and d 12-4-1924. Lucy m a widower Joseph Smoot (Crow) Dennis in Roane Co. WV on 11-27-1903.
Mary Ella the da of William H Schoonover. Jake the son of Sarah Jane Schoonover who were children of William and Susan McDaniel Schoonover. (Other than the McDaniel line, I can provide you with several generations of ancestors of Schoonovers and some on Grose)
Jake m second Sarah Virgie Elmore 7-11-1889 in Roane Co. Married by Rev Thomas Moss.
Jake m third Caroline Fitzwater b 7-9-1871 and d abt 1904. Marriage date 8-23-1895. There were other marriages.
