William M. GRISSOM was born in Grantsburg Township, Johnson County, IL,
9 December 1830. His father was Warren GRISSOM of North Carolina who
was the son of John GRISSOM. Warren moved to Tennessee at the age of
6. In 1818, at the age of 12, they moved to Illinois. John GRISSOM's
wife died in Grantsburg Township and was buried in Grissom Cemetery.
John then returned to Tennessee, remaining there until his death.
At the age of 18, Warren GRISSOM left his parents farm and went to live
with the SIMPSONs where he was able to attend a year of school. He
remained in that neighborhood for seven years. At the age of 22 he went
to Golconda where he worked in a tobacco warehouse and general
merchandise store for five years. At the age of 24, he married Miss
Miranda FINNEY, a native of Ohio. Miranda's parents died when she was
six and she lived in Golconda, IL with her aunt. They bought a farm in
Grantsburg Township. His first wife died in 1849 and he then married
Sarah WILLIAMS from Georgia who also preceded him in death. Warren died
in 1867 and he was buried in Pope County, IL. With his first wife, he
had seven children: William M.; Naomi, who died on the old farm at the
age of 1 year; Elizabeth, who also died at the farm at the age of 1
year; Pleasant G. who died at the age of 3; Nancy, deceased; Mary A.,
who married and lived in Massac County, IL; and Thomas L. who died in
Massac County. With his second wife, he had: Warren J. and Delilah
Jane, deceased; and a child that died in infancy.
William M. GRISSOM was the first born. He lived with his parents on the
farm until he was 13 years old at which time he went to live with
Pleasant Rose. He lived with him for 8 years. He was then employed on
another farm for 4 years. At that time, he had saved enough money to
buy a farm of his own. In 1859, he married Miss Eliza FARLES, a native
of Johnson County, IL. She died in 1886 and was buried in Concord
graveyard. William was married second to Miss Eliza SPENCE of Massac
County, IL. By his first wife, he had the following children: Sidney
A., deceased; James E., Jane, Thomas L., Kittie and Ida, all of whom
died in infancy; Mary Elizabeth, wife of Frank FAERIES; William J., who
was a teacher in Johnson County, and Barney.

I am looking for the Elam Families of Johnson and pope Counties
I have a Albert Otis Elam born Jan. 10,1904 in Johnson County. He
married a Etta Mae Simmons. Albert's parents were James Mack Elam and Nellie
Thanks for any help
Does anyone know if the following records are available for Johnson Co.
Tax Lists 1831-1859
Road Orders 1831-1859
Thanks for any help.
Jordan Goddard and wife Rebecca are my 2nd great grandparents. Their
tombstones are located at Dunn, Texas County, Missouri in the Rock Springs
Cemetery. Jordan's tombstone is inscribed "Company I, 120th Illinois
Infantry", which was a unit from Johnson County Illinois. Rebecca's stone
(Becky) is inscribed "wife of Jordan Goddard". There are several Goddard
households listed in Johnson County's 1850 and 1860 censuses, but none with
anyone named Jordan. I have a reference to a Johnson County courthouse
marriage record between a Jordan Godard (1 "d") and a Rebecca C. Horner
occuring on June 18, 1854. Since her tombstone says "Becky C. Goddard",
I'm inclined to think this is the correct marriage record for my 2nd great
grandparents. With respect to her family, there is a Philip Harner ("a",
not "o") with wife Sarah and several children listed in the 1850 census.
They have a daughter Rebecca about the right age, and I believe their
places of birth are corroborated by the information provided years later in
the 1880 Crawford County Missouri Census and the 1900 Texas County Missouri
census, where Jordan and Rebecca had moved. I have a record (somehwere) of
a marriage between Philip Harner and Sarah Clarke occurring in Tennessee
(where Rebecca was born). Does anyone have any clues who their families
were in Johnson County?
