Here is some information I've received from my father regarding our Groce N.C. background... I'll list what I know- G.G. Grandfather was Albis Davis Groce (married to Katie McInnis)- from Sanford, NC. Their son, David Franklin Groce was my G. Grandfather (married to Candy Ann Gastor). Their son, Jesse Clyde Groce (b. Dec. 3, 1889) was my grandfather (married to Alberta Mae Taylor- 2nd wife). From my Grandfather's 1st wife they had, Katie Paul Groce, Omar Groce, Margaret Groce, Johnny Groce, James David Groce- and then my father with his 2nd- Jesse Clyde Groce Jr. My father married Rosalie Creef and had me and my sister Karen Rose Groce (different Karen than the one on this posting). This is all that I have. I hope it helps. If anyone has anymore info please let me know (e.g. where did we come from, etc.). Thanks!
