Francis Marion Grammer/Elizabeth Gillentine Rhyne

I am the g-g-grandaughter of Francis Marion Grammer and Elizabeth Gillentine Rhyne. I am looking for information on Francis's siblings and parents.

This is a little of what I have. Don't take the following information as gospel, as this is still a work in progress for me; I haven't been able to verify all of it yet, but I believe it to be very accurate.

Elizabeth's [b. 1826-27 Morgan Co, AL d. not known at this time] maiden name was actually Gillentine, the daughter of Richard Leake and Sidney Liana Stovall Gillentine. Elizabeth's first husband was Michael Rhyne[b. 1823 GA d. 2-1853 MS], son of Jacob and Sarah Hope Rhyne, with whom she had the following children:
Robert C. Rhyne
Sarah Rhyne
Susan Rhyne (Martha? there is some confusion on her name)
Michael Rhyne (Jr. I assume)

Elizabeth & Francis Marion [b. abt 1836 in, I believe, AL d. unknown at this time] married 11 Jan 1855 in Itawamba Co., MS and had the following children:
Joseph R. (or Joel)
Nancy M.
Benjamin F.
Francis Marion (Jr) my g-grandfather m. Tierna Pate
John T.

I did find Francis and Elizabeth in the following census:
1860 Itawamba, MS pg 180
1870 Itawamba, MS pg 338
1880 Itawamba, MS pg 449A & B

I do know Francis had 1 more son, Riley, I just don't know by whom. I'm totally speculating here: Elizabeth dies first, Francis remarries, and he has at least one more child, Riley (possibly James Riley b. 22 Feb 1890 Booneville?, MS maybe Alcorn Co., MS).

I would like to connect with anyone who may have any information on the MS Grammer's. Thanks!
