Averis Gryder is my 2nd great grandfather. My paternal grandmother was Bessie Jane Gryder Watson(b 18 Aug 1882 d 25 Sep 1969), the daughter of Frederick Winfield Gryder (b 15 Jul 1852 in NC, d 22 Sep 1944 in SC). She married Rev. Earl Stacy Watson Sr. in 1916. He was a Presbyterian minister and they eventually ended up in Logan County, Kentucky about 1930. They had four living children, Elizabeth Watson Lapis who migrated to New York during WW II; Earl Stacy Watson Jr, my father, who was a farmer in Logan Co, KY; William Gryder Watson, who was a school teacher in Kentucky, and another son still living. I am interested in knowing more about your branch of the family that, I believe, starts with Averis' son James. Looking forward to hearing from you.
