Hi Lelia
I see you are requesting photos of the Grayson Family Vault in Woodbridge. I am close and will take a look to see if I can get some better pictures. I'll get back with you later this week.

tiny correction
Correction gladly made. I have enjoyed researching your family, especially the remarkable (and beautiful!) women in it. Would you like me to transfer any of my memorials to you? I am not related in any way, and would be happy to pass on any/all you would like.

Burned Courthouse in MO
I forgot to mention that Dan Grayson said the courthouse burned in Missouri where G. W. & 1st wife (Ellington) lived. This may be lots of your trouble in locating mom's birth certificate was also lost in a courthouse fire in members had to vouch in a document for her birth. I cannot remember which daughter of G. W. 's wrote about her parents...I read it & took dates from that also.
Have a good weekend!

G.W. Grayson Info.
Dear Lelia,

I got my information mostly from:
"Daniel E. Grayson"

Then, I kept reading research that was done by other Grayson's & made my conclusions.

Another Grayson Relative =
Posted by "Annette Bailey" in 2000:
“My grandfather was G. W. Grayson, m. Sarah Ward Ellington (not Allerton) c. 1825 had 8 or 9 children.
One was my gr. grandmother Rachel Ella Grayson, bn. 15 June 1843. Other siblings were Nancy m. Henry Baker, George W. & John. Sarah was born 1803-1805, d. in Bozeman, MT on Aug 16/17, 1888; she was about 86-88 years old.
The family story is that she and G. W. were divorced, an unheard thing to do in those days."

Also, Contributor, "Kati McSweeney (#46899027)" is a grand-niece to G. W.'s son, John Marshall Grayson (according to a flower she left for him as she did his memorial page). She may know a great deal about your family.

I wish I could be of more help to you, but I was trying to work on the Ellington line & wanted to link Sarah Ward Ellington Grayson's husband (G. W.) & her kids to her if I could find them.

Best of luck in your research!

Grayson, GW
The only contribution I have made besides adding the memorial is adding the headstone photo. You might want to contact the individuals who added the portrait photo and the bio information. Their names are below the items.
Good luck!

RE: sorry
No problem. I deleted mine. Now you delete yours.

You're quite welcome to the photos.

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request and just wanted you to know that these other Partridges are buried next to her: Will, Frederick, and Dorothy. Also, on the other side of Dorothy is Frederick and Augusta Harrison. They have the same style of headstone so I thought maybe they might be related. If not, maybe it will help someone else, someday. I created memorials for all of them.

RE: Reuben Kelly
I didn't have one, but I had two other people with me and luckily they had a clear picture. I will upload it now.

Nancy Bratten Photo Request
I added a problem to your photo request for
Nancy Bratten b. 1804, d. 1833 in the Givan Cemetery Liberty TN, Although the general comment about the cemetery is correct, I meant to place the problem report on the request for James Grandstaff's photo. Therefore the comment on his wife's photo is not applicable to Nancy Bratten. I did see some Bratten grave markers in 2003 but I did not photograph them at that time. They are inaccessible now until and if the cemetery gets a total cleanup and restoration. I would be glad to help in that effort.
