I think I could offer some help on the Grantham side. My GGGrandfather John Grantham settled in Covington around 1840. While your group of Granthams I believe was seperate from ours they all came from the same extended family from N.C. I have seen the names of the other Granthams that were in Covington and always wondered how closley related we might be. I can suggest some resources on helping to find your groups connection to the family. All Granthams seem to back to Old Edward Grantham who was in Isle of Wight VA in the early 1600's. We have connected are group back to him though a couple of the connections are only 95% of being sure. Ther is a lot on the Granthams in general, so let me know. Matt- e-mail

Are you referring to Retha Martin Sasser who married J. P. Sasser or Jay Sasser on Dec 24, 1933? They had sons: Charles, Max, Dallas, Roger, daughter Audrey? They lived in Esto, Florida.

Jay's parents were James Albert Sasser and Hattie Lee Cogburn Sasser.

Retha was married to my father's brother, Jay or J.P.
Do you have any contact with the family? It's amazing how we can all be related to the same people! I just happened to be going through the message board yesterday and seen your posting. We have the Sasser Family Reunion in March, so I get to see most everyone then. Didn't get to see Roger and Brenda this year, nor Charles. He had had some surgery done and wasn't feeling up to par. I did see Max tho.
Thanks for responding!
