My grandfather, George Riley Lemons - brick wall no more!

After many years of trying to bust through the brick wall of my grandfather, George Riley Lemons, knowing nothing of his ancestry, here's a sketch of what I've found.

UPDATE: Thanks to Genforum, etc., I've located EIGHT siblings to my grandfather, George Riley Lemons:
Violet Lemons 1871-1904
John W. Lemons 1873-1943
Katharine Lemons 1876-1944
Sarah (Sadie) E. Lemons 1878-1950
Annie T. Lemons 1879-1943
Maggie L. Lemons 1881-1957
Leslie T. Lemons 1885-1945
Lakin H. Lemons 1888-1950

I hit a goldmine!

George Riley Lemons was the son of Silas A. Lemons 1836-1909 (& Lucy A. Whitaker 1848-1905) (my great-gf)
...Silas A. Lemons was the son of George Lemmons b 1790 (& Jane Jennie King) (my gg-gf) (note the spelling change)
...George Lemmons was the son of William Lemmons b 1765 (& Elizabeth b 1766) (my ggg-gf)
