Surnames: Cox, Harper, Pillow
Lynchburg, Campbell County and Spout Springs Virginia are all within hollering distance. Obviously these people must be related. I am looking for my husbands's great grandmother,Mary Jane Grishaw, born 1840, who was married to William Pillow. These people are from Campbell Co. and their descendants live there still.I would love to find siblings and parents of Mary Jane Grishaw.

Thanks I figured it out. I'm not sure this is my line. I have info that says Daniels wife was M.A. so I'm still looking for that info. But thank you for trying.

I don't know if you still need info on the family of Mary Jane Grishaw or not. I am researching the Grishaw family for my daughter-in-law. As far as I know, Mary Jane's parents were James (b. ca 1820) Grishaw and Mary Foster, d/o William Foster. They married in Campbell Co. (Reg.1, p.68) 15 Dec 1838. Their children were: Elizabeth Ann b. ca 1839 m. Leroy W. Dunnavant 13 April 1864; Mary Jane (you know about her); Martha b. ca 1844. James's second wife was Sarah A. Maddox. They married 8 May 1850 in Campbell Co. VA (same book and page). They had William R. b. April 1861 (VA Bureau of Vital Statistics - Lib. of VA). If you have further info on this family, I sure would like to receive it. I believe James was the s/o William Grishaw and Jemima Finch, but I'm not sure. Do you know?

Hi, are you or your husband related to a Johnnie Grishaw from that area of VA? He died I believe around 1992. He was married to a lady named Hazel..
