Birth: Jan. 26, 1871
Garrard County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1925
Jessamine County
Kentucky, USA

John was the son of Moses and Fannie Cheatham Grimes. He married Katie, the daughter of Daniel and Lydia Zike Harrigan, on March 14, 1892. After Katie passed away, John moved to Cincinnati where his mother and several of his siblings were living.

He married Ida Sophia "Edith" Nebel. She and John lost, at least, two children to stillbirth. She gave birth to a healthy son, Carl, by C-section in 1916. Sadly, she passed away from the effects of hemorrhagic shock four days after Carl's birth.

Mr. Grimes married Martha and they, along with Carl, lived in Cincinnati. When his father passed away, he inherited part of the land. He, Martha and Carl moved to Jessamine County and made their home there. John passed away from the effects of acute indigestion.
