I went to the 1920 US Census Records and will post for you what I found.. One thing about it, you never know how a census taker is going to spell the Grisham name, have seen it spelt as Gresham, Grisham, Grissom,Grissam, Grissum, Grissim, Grisham,can't remember all the spellings I have seen for that name also a lot of census takers wrote as bad as I do.

I looked in the 1930 US Census and didn't find a fit but only looked for Grissom and not all the other spellings.
I am posting the Edith's I found that appear to fit your query. Hope this will be a help to you
