The focus of this portion of the website is to trace the
descendants of Andrew Jackson Grisham, Sr.
and his wife, Gillie Olive (Mason) Grisham.
To this point no document has been uncovered to
definitively identify the parents of this Andrew Jackson Grisham, Sr. We
have spent over two decades looking for a definitive link to his parents.
Andrew Jackson Grisham, Sr. is
presented herein as a son of George Gresham, Sr.
and his first wife, Miss Waugh. There is also a lesser possibility that
Andrew Jackson Grisham, Sr., might have been a son of George
Washington Grisham, Jr., who WAS the oldest child of George
Gresham, Sr. and Miss Waugh.
The early descendants of these men
"claimed" to be related. The descendants of George, Jr.
and Andrew, Sr. lived in close proximity for decades.

Would you consider contributing to a fund to
erect a chain-link fence around the graves of Andrew Jackson
Grisham, Sr., Gillie Olive (Mason) Grisham, Matilda Jeanette
(Grisham) Anderson, Joseph Randolph Anderson, and three of their
children? These graves are in the abandoned Old Baptist
Cemetery/Anderson Family Cemetery at the Tippah County edge of
Prentiss County, MS.
