Several of you are looking for the children of Enos and Rebecca. i dug the following out of my files but do not take it as gospel without further checking. David b. 1796 m. Mary Dyer in 1817 ; Reuben b. 1799 m. a lady named Hellender ; Carter T. b. 1801 m. Polly Vitteloe in 1822 ; Timothy b. 1810 m. Delphia Coffee in 1828 ; Greenberry b. 1823 m. Elizabeth Harrell in 1847.(but see below) All were on the 1850 Grainger census and I have a list of their children. Enos and Rebecca doubtless had daughters but I do not know who they were. I doubt the above Greenberry is correc. Both Enos and Rebecca were reportedly born in 1772 and that means Rebecca was 51 years old in 1823. A lot f Grainger researchers want to assign this Timothy to the parents of Enos but that is wrong. For one thing, Elizabeth (Shockley) Dalton was over age 50 in 1810. Their son Timothy stayed in Grayson County and later webt to Missouri. I have details. Enos nd Rebecca ere both living in 1850, both age 78.-- Ken Haas

Iive in Iowa and my Daltons are the Grayson/Carroll, Va. clan. I have some Grainger records up to 1850 but almost nothing beyomd/ The 1910 or 1920 census would tell you the parents of your grandfather. You then work back to 1850 or so. Ny then, someone could take you back to the 1700s.Maybe someone has these 1900-plus records but I doubt it. A good library can order census records on micofilm. It takes a bit of work - no pain, no gain.-- Ken
