Thanks for the reference, I will certainly try to find the book. The History of Grimes County (1982) also mentions the furniture store with your ggg grandfather.

I'd be pleased to know of anything you see in the archives.

If this is the Jessie Smith Stampley born in 1832, I've seen two stories about him. Of course you could be refering to a son or nephew. This Jessie would have been David's brother and Richard and Abigail's son.

In a message on genforum ( it is reported that he enlisted a MS infantry company and was wounded at the Seven Days Battle.

Another web source says that his 3rd wife Lucy Gardner was the sister of his 2nd wife Rebecca Gardner. I can't dig up the reference right away, but I can with some time...
