Grimes family from Meriwether Co to Coweta Co., Ga.
Posted by: christine Grimes Thacker (ID *****1562) Date: July 08, 2002 at 11:19:47
  of 901

Hi All, have been working with Dickson Grimes, trying to find the parents of Calvin, Frederick (Fred) & Travis Grimes of Coweta Co., Ga. As most know working on the Duplin Co., Grimes line that went to Ga, Al, and some on to TX. that those names have been in our lines one way or another
Does anyone have any info on Wm Garland Grimes ??????????
here is what Dickson sent today
<<<<Christine,
I went down to the Archives building Saturday and found something that I'd like to get your opinion of. I was looking for info about a Grimes who might have died around 1840 in Meriwether County...Calvin's dad, whose wife Mary moved to Coweta with all the kids.
I looked everywhere on probate and estate records and found nothing.
But...when I was looking at property sales...I found two things. Mary (with Calvin, Travis, Jane, etc), sold a property in Meriwether in 1844. This would make sense as she is on the Meriwether census in 1840 and the Coweta
in 1850. When I looked for grantees...I found a listing for a Harland Grimes in 1831...of what I think is probably the same property that Mary sold. So..my question is...would I be correct in maybe thinking that the
typist misread the G for an H...typing Harland instead of Garland? Could this be the William Garland Grimes that nobody seems to know about? I'm not sure how to confirm this...the archives people weren't much help in this...they just said keep looking. Do you have any ideas?
Thanks Christine for any advice you can give,
Dickson >>>>
On the keyboard the G is next to the H and it could very well have been a typo??
Can anyone help on this line ??
