Am looking for any ancestors or info regarding the families of John Gravely and wife Winny(Winnie)(don't know maiden name) and the families of Solomon Talbot and wife Patsey(don't know maiden name).

I believe they are the same families that moved to Carroll County after 1850 and that 2 of their children married. Elizabeth Gravely(b about 1830) and Elisha Talbot(Tolbert) (b. about 1826).

I believe these are the families of my gggrandparents. If I can connect them--their daughter Elizabeth W. Tolbert (b. about 1861) was my ggrandmother. But records have her married George J. Dawson & my ggrandfather was George J(or W) Lawson--but all the dates of births, marriages and similiar names make it seem to me like an error in transcription. But I can't find my Lawson's til the 1900 census. I have no idea what county George came from but records say he was born in Virginia.--and coincidentally I can't find a Dawson to match anything either.

So I am assuming that these are my people and would like some background info on them if anyone knows anything about their families when they lived in Henry County.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
