Caught the Genealogy bug at an very early age. But did not get to really dive into it until the mid to late 1990's. I love the challenges of looking for records and hopefully along the way meet up with distant relatives that share my compassion for preserving the family history.
I am pleased to find a new potential cousin. Could you share with me your documentation for the name of Frederick Grider's first wife, your ancestor? Many of her descendants cite a name for her; but, no one provides documentation. If you have documentation, please share it. Also, what documentation do you have for the death of "Ellen" Perryman Grider? Most family researchers believed Frederick Grider was widwoed when he married his first wife's sister, Sarah Perryman (ca. 1787-ca. 1884), my ancestor.
It will be a pleasure to confer with you further regarding our Grider family genealogy.
