Re: William Henry Calvin Grammer of Mississippi

Norma,

I'm not sure of the connection between the Alabama Grammer families (James, James G., Robert, Joseph, John, Andrew Jackson, William Calvin, and Francis Marion), but given the census records, etc. there seems to be some kind of connection. Here's an idea I'm tossing out and would like any feedback:

There is a James Grammer age 40-50 in the 1830 Federal Census in Tuscaloosa County Alabama with the 8 individuals (6 male and 2 female) living in his household all 20 or younger. Based on this and later census records, here is a possibility for the names of those 8 individuals (most likely siblings):

Name
Age
Est. Birth Year
Known or most likely birth year
Known or most likely birth place

James Grammer 40-50 1780-1790
unknown female 15-20 1810-1815
James G. Grammer 15-20 1810-1815 1810 TN
Robert Grammer 15-20 1810-1815 TN
Joseph Grammer 10-15 1815-1820
John Grammer 5-10 1820-1825 1823 AL
Andrew Jackson Grammer 5-10 1820-1825 1825 AL
unknown male under 5 1825-1830
unknown female under 5 1825-1830
William Calvin Grammer 1831 AL
Francis Marion Grammer 1836

My ancestor is the James G. Grammer born abt 1810. He is the James that married Elizabeth Grizzle.

I've seen speculation that Andrew Jackson Grammer is the son of James Grammer and I've seen speculation that some of the above Grammer men are siblings. So I was thinking, maybe....it's just an idea, but what do you think?

Theresa
