I am interested in filling in and correcting as much as possible: I am also very interested in the Grider family Line, because Ruth and Catherine Smith's brother William Green Smith married Nancy Grider: Nancy was born abt 1802 in VA; any clues to where she fits into the Grider family tree?... Also interested in the William James and Mary Stokes is this Thomas James father ? Any clues or thoughts to who Thomas James wife was ?
