Sources: (1) Notes & Records of Jessica Lally, of Washington State, U.S.A., in her Extension of the Griersons & the Lallys, of Ireland, U.K. This work is based on her own private research with notations drawn from Gloria (nee Grierson) Stephenson's family history (deceased) & David Alan Grierson's: The Irish Connection & The Culture of MacGregor:
Children of Henry Grierson and Ida Crawford: (I have only included individuals for which I had different or further information, than the document you sent me—hoping to help fill in some gaps. I have excluded individuals for which our information was a match).

My great grandfather:

I. Allen McAlpine Grierson:
Birth: 17 Mar 1898

He ran a small general store in Florissant, Missouri
Allen Married:

Sophia Clara Broskey:
Birth: 12 Jul 1898, Mogeliv Russia
Death: 5 Jul 1979, Yakima Washington

There are several spellings of her last name, including the spelling “Broskey” which she used toward the end of her life. Earlier records indicate different spellings: Broski, Bzoska and the original Polish spelling: Brzhoska.

They had 3 children:

II. Adair Douglas Grierson: 7 Jan 1900 – 18 Jul 1949
Married: Alvina Herman (10 May 1906 – 4 Jan 1931) She was born and died in Missouri. Her death certificate states a brain abscess as the cause of death due to a Bilateral Mastoiditis—infection of the mastoid bone. Daughter of Max Herman and Alvina Pholman. I have no date of birth or death for her mother and father.

III. Leonard Cloud Grierson: 1904-1975
       Married: Sarah (I do not know her maiden name).
       Birth: 31 Aug 1906, Illinois

       Information for her was gathered from her death certificate.

       They had 2 children:
