Have you made any progress on the Micajah Lightner and Mary Ferrell Grimes lineage? My husband, Warren Ferrell, is descended from Andrew Jackson Ferrell, brother of Mary. For decades all we knew was that Andrew J. Ferrell and his sister Mary (b)OH- were orphaned by an epidemic and then taken in by neighbors who brought the two youngsters to Greene Co PA. I am assuming, because Mary's last name was listed as Grimes, that they were raised by a GRIME'S family in Greene Co. Just wondered if you had heard anything that would confirm that theory?
We too got our information from a distant cousin of my father-in-law. Her name was Elizabeth.
If you'd like to compare notes please contact me by replying to this message. I will be advised of your reply and can email you off this site if you supply an addy.
