Probably child of Susan Goble

Probably children of Elizabeth Spears

Susan Goble

born abt. 1795 or 1800, North Carolina

Other sources indicate the name as "Coble."

Daughters Sarah (1811-1895) and Dicey (1837-1919) married brothers James (1819-1891) and Alonzo (1836-1912) Bennett (sons of William M. Bennett (abt. 1787-1860))

A son, John Grimes (1819-1899), married Susannah Brown.

Chuck Elledge attributes all children to Elizabeth Spears

Another reference (Kentucky, Statewide - Marriages early to 1800) indicates "Samuel Grimes m. Elizabeth Speer in Shelby Co., KY 10 Aug 1815." Given birth dates from aforementioned Elledge site, Sarah "Sally" Grimes seems to be the only child of Samuel and Susan. All others were born well after 1815. There is an eight year gap between Sarah and John.

Did Susan Goble die before 1815? Did they divorce?
