William Henry Calvin Grammer of Mississippi
Posted by: Norma Church (ID *****9096) Date: August 02, 2009 at 12:13:45
  of 600

I am looking for the parents of William Grammer.
There is a little confusion about his name.
He married Susan Melissa Rhyne daughter of Jacob Rhyne
and Sally Hope.Her brother Henry William Rhyne said in L M Hoffman's book " Our Kin " that Susan married Henry
Grammer yet he went by the name of William Calvin Grammer.
Henry could be part of his name or a nick name.His 2nd marriage was to Sabetha Nancy Salmon.They lived in Lafayette co Mississippi.William and Susan lived in Itawamba co Mississippi.
After their split Susan and her children moved to Delta Texas,
Some later moved on to Oklahoma.
My problem is in finding William Grammer's parents.According to census records he was born in Alabama.I can find no
census records or any other records prior to 1861.It is like he just appeared .I can also find no records on Francis Marion Grammer prior to 1860.He married Michael Rhynes widow .Is this how Susan and William met?I strongly
believe that William and Francis Marion are brothers,since
they are close to the same age and lived very close together.Can anyone help me .
