Welcome to History Hub,
in 1880 Dicey and children lived with a family named Burl and Martha Simons
In the following George W. Grantham became an indentured servant in 1882, at the age of 4 years until he turned 21,to David T. Hood a farmer. Rebecca is only mentioned in the above portion of the document.
yes, I found them documents and others before 1880 like back as far as 1850 when dicey went by direy and is the daughter of needham. she was born a grantham but in 1879 who was the father of geo w. grantham . cant find any birth or church records of geo w. grantham or marriage record of the father or dizy. Im starting to think the child was born out of wedlock and she lived with the simon's after needham passed away and the farm was sold. then later married fountain grantham.
