      Subject: [TNWARREN-L] 2 oldest daughter of Robert Thomas GRISSON b. 1803-1808
      Date: Thursday, July 01, 1999 8:57 PM

      Can anyone tell me who the 2 oldest daughter are in the 1830 and 1840 Census for Robert Thomas GRISSOM below. Are they Elizabeth and Polly? Their birth years are between 1825 and 1830 according to these two census.

      They do not appear in the 1850 Census for their father. They must have been married by that time. Since there are no marriage records in Warren County before 1852 that I am aware of, it may be difficul to locate their marriage dates and grooms.
