There is a Lincoln Co. NC will for a Drury Grisson, probated Jan. 1829, wife's name not given, but two sons named Moses Grisson and Milton W. Grissom. The will is in Will Book 1, p. 121, Clerk of Court's office, Lincoln Co. Courthouse, Lincolnton, NC 28092. There is also a file on Drury Grissom in Lincoln Co. Estates, NC Archives, Raleigh. The estate file may give name of wife. If not, wife's name may be recorded in county court minutes, late 1828, early 1829. There are Linc. Co. marriage bonds for the sons - Moses Grissom to Elizabeth Slate 21 Dec. 1815, Milton W. Grissom to Nancy Slate 30 Oct. 1827. Given the marriage dates for the sons, I would think Drury Grissom was b. before 1784.
The only thing I have in my file on GRISSOM concerns a Martin Grissom, Lincoln Co. marriage to Elizabeth Gregory 17 Mar. 1812. Lincoln Co. Deed Bk. 28, p. 352 records a deed whereby "for love and affection to my father-in-law and mother-in-law William and Margaret Gregory" Martin Grisham conveys 40 acres of land to his in-laws "where they have laid the foundation of a house" being "part of the land whereon I now live." This deed documents the parents of Elizabeth Gregory who married Martin Grissom.
