      Looking for previous marriage or marriages of Levander P. John "John" GRISSOM. He was the son of James Clayborne Grissom and Ann BOYD.

      On the 1900 Census he is married to his last wife Margaret Mae 'Maggie' CRAIN, and there are two children listed that are not hers.

      Orben - born June 1894
      James B. born Dec 1896

      Maggie and John were married 23 Feb 1897 in Van Buren Co., so these first two children have to be from different marriage.
