  • Notes 
    • Marriage, birth, census records obtained from www.Ancestry.com website.
      There are nine families living next to each other in Tiffin Township,Adams County, Ohio in the 30th August 1850 Census record who are mostcertainly all related to each other. Several are widowed or widower'swith children as well. Plus, in the same census year in FentressCounty, Tennessee there are several families living together who arecertainly related to each other as well as to John Abraham Grooms inAdams County, Ohio with the rest of the families. It is a sad thingthat earlier census records only listed the head of the house hold.It does prevent us from knowing how they all are related in the familydynamics through the census records.

      From the early marriage records in Virginia three marriages are listedfor John Grooms. I can only verify two of the marriages as listed,because of the Children's ages and the vicinity of where they livedrelative to John Abraham Grooms in the census records. The marriagethat cannot be confirmed as yet is to a Mary Foye, 30 June 1797 inBerkeley County, Virginia for a very short duration since Johnremarries again in 1800 to Nancy.

      John may have had several children that we are unaware of at thispoint.
