Added several new photos in the Grim-Grimm Family Photos section. These include John WIlliam Grimm and wife Mamie King; James Jackson Grimm and a photo of his grave; his wife, Arminnie Davis; their son Russell Boyd Grimm; Russell's wife, Opal Ardith Putnam; and Russell's and Opal's grave.
Also added two grave photos in the Fayette County Cemeteries section, that of my 5th great grandfather William Jefferies and his second wife, Martha Mendenhall.
Upon doing some research today, I discovered the slight possibility that Christian Grim could indeed be an uncle of the famous Brothers Grimm. It is not proof, however. Still looking for that. Click on the Christian Grim link above and go to the ***Note about halfway down to see the new information.
Added the following photos today.
From my collection: updated photos of Edward Everett Grim and his wife, Emma (Locke) Grim. Added photos of Edward & Emma Grim on their houseboat, Charles Norman and Arless P. Grimm together (and deleted small, cropped, separate photos), a photo of Charles Norman Grimm with his second wife, and one of Charles Norman Grimm at his boat landing in Pittsburgh. Also added grave photos of Lillian B. (Acklin) Grimm, E. P. "Bill" Grimm and Virginia M. "Babe" Grimm.
From History of Pleasants County, West Virginia to 1980, 2nd ed.: photos of relatives of Emma (Locke) Grim — Cecil Horner with his wife, Maria Newbraugh, and Clemmia Locke with her husband, William Nichols. Also, a photo of the Alva S. Grimm Hospital in St. Marys, WV.
From Emma Cooke LaRiccia: a photo of Ernie Grim.
From Nick Deem: a photo of Isabel (Foggin) Grim.
From Fred Schultz: photos of Isabel (Foggin) (Grim) Provo; Ema Jane Grim; John Newton, Cora Blanche and Edith Isabel Grim; Cora Blanche Grim; Lowell Taylor and Grover Schultz; Grover Franklin Schultz; gravestone of Thomas Grim, Jr., and Civil War discharge paper of Armstrong Grim.
Updated photos of Salem Grim, Salem & Malissa Grim family, Bertrand M. Grimm and Ethel (Gorrell) Grimm to larger, higher quality photos.
This is the first update of photos. There will be at least one more in coming days, once I get them all sorted out.
Jessie & Maggie Cooper's gravestone can be found in the Miscellaneous Cemeteries section. Graves of Jane Pierpoint Darnell, along with her son and daughter-in-law, Samuel T. and Amy A. Darnell can be found in the new Ritchie County section under West Virginia Cemeteries.
More family photos later.
Well, the site finally has the family files updated after more than a year. I haven't had much time for genealogy, as I spent the last few years writing a book about my hometown, Fowlerville, Michigan.
I've lost track over the years about what has been updated, but I know that a lot has been added to the descendants of Andrew Jackson Grim and his wife, Nancy Good. As I've had time I've added census records, vital records from West Virginia, and have started to go through the Pennsylvania Marriage Records that are newly available on FamilySearch.org.
Enjoy! Hopefully in the next week or so I'll get the photo pages updated. I know I have several to add.
Updated the family files today. Many new census records led to new names, along with birth/death/marriage records if they were from West Virginia.
Once again I've updated the genealogy files. More on Earseman Grim and his family, as well as corrections/additions on Nizzie Grim and her family. Probably the biggest additions are to my Acklin line. There is much more here, both on descendants in the Acklin line, as well as the ancestry of Martha Jane Simpson (wife of Joseph Kelley) on her mother's side.
I've uploaded a fresh update of the genealogy files portion of the site. Not a lot of changes, but there is more on the descendants of Morgan R. Grimm, a son of John B. Grim & Jane Grandon.
Added photos of siblings Earseman and Mary Lucretia Grimm; they were children of Morgan R. Grimm & Elizabeth Galloway.
Updated photos of the towboat Monongahela being raised after sinking; better quality photos.
Added photos of Ohio Civil War Veteran medal of Armstrong Grim, and photo of Thomas Grim, Jr.; courtesy of Fred Schultz.
Updated family files. Updates include the family of Elizabeth "Nizzie" Grim, daughter of Morgan Grim and Elizabeth Galloway. Many descendants of Commodore Perry Burch, a grandson of Thomas Grim & Rachel McCullough, have been added. My files now include 200+ descendants of this family.
Added a new Photo Album with photos of the Acklin Family, my grandmother's line.
Added more Towboat Photos, along with corrections.
Look for updated family files in the next week or so, with additions to the Acklins and the line of Harvey D. Grimm.
Photos of Harvey D. Grimm (son of John B. Grim), his second wife, Nancy Philips, and their son, William Morgan Grim, have been posted in the Grim-Grimm Photo Album.
Also, a new Towboats Photo Album has been added, showing the various boats my great-grandfather, his sons and grandsons have owned, as well as some of the boats my dad worked on.
Added a West Virginia Cemeteries Photo Album with 70+ photos from several different cemeteries in Tyler County, WV. Also moved the photo of Levi & Barbara Grim's graves from Miscellaneous to Mount Pleasant/Long's Cemetery in the West Virginia Cemeteries Photo Album.
The latest updates to the site include: Luther Scott Grim's line. Luther was the son of Thomas & Rose Ann Grim, and the grandson of Adam Grim & Hannah Syphers. There have also been three photos added to the Cemetery—Miscellaneous page. Thanks to Ed Campbell for sending, and reminding me, of this information.
Added 3 tombstone photos in the Miscellaneous Cemetery section: those of Isaac Newton Grim, Luther Scott Grim and wife, and John & Lilly Belle (Grim) Riggs. Photos courtesy of Ed Campbell.
The Photo Album pages have finally been converted to the new layout. Coming soon (I hope): more cemetery pages, this time from West Virginia.
All of the Civil War Pages have now been updated and uploaded.
I believe the last time these pages were updated were in 2001. That's a long time, and a lot of new information has been added. In addition to what other researchers have sent, there are more census records listed, which in some cases leads to more people being added. In addition, the state of West Virginia has been publishing vital records online, and many, many death records are now included.
