I am researching the Grayson family of the Rowan Co. area.
I have seen evidence of this family in Rowan, Bath, Morgon, and Montgomery Co. KY Also, Brown Co., OH.
Sylvanus Grayson born 1860 KY (likely Rowan). Wife Joan Ramey born 1864 KY
To my knowledge all children of this union were born in Rowan and were present in the census:
There is a lot of confusion in Sylvanus childhood. It seems he lived in Brown Co., OH (1870) and Rowan Co., KY (1880)with different family members during his childhood.
His father was likely Thomas Grayson of KY (Rowan Co). Thomas married Elizabeth Moore daughter of Ann(Powers) and Isaac Moore of Brown Co., Ohio
Sylvanus Siblings include:
In (1880)he lived with Susan Grayson widow of Joshua Grayson of Rowan and Bath Co.
What was the relationship among these families?
Could use some help sorting the mysteries this family has to offer.
Why did Sylvanus live with relatives?
Who was Thomas' father?
Would enjoy contact with anyone researching Graysons in the area.
