GRISSOM FAMILY HISTORY
Through the efforts of many people, we have compiled a genealogical
history of our Grissom family. Trace the families of John
Toliver Grissom and Florence Martha Haston, and you'll
see the names Hatfield and McCoy, Hoodenpyl and Shockley, Moore
and Haston, Swindle and Chisham. It's fascinating reading and
it's always nice to learn about your roots. Get to know your
ancestors through this amazing history.
We have taken a handwritten history from Edith Grissom Vickers
(penned around 1972), and added information researched and collected
by Lynn Schiller, Sylva Hildebrandt, Eva Harbison and Corrine Opel.
Many thanks to these ladies for all their effort and hard work.
If you have additional information that would add to this history,
we'd love to hear
GRISSOM PICTURE ARCHIVES
here to see some classic pictures
from the Grissom Archives. We've also
accumulated pictures from the last few Grissom
Family Reunions as a reminder of those great events. As more pictures become
available, we will add them to this page. We welcome any other
contributions to the archives. Please contact Corrine or Paul for
GRISSOM FAMILY REUNIONS
are looking ahead to 2005 and wondering how to plan. We love getting
together with our relatives, but we wonder if interest is waning.
At the reunion in 2003 the attendance was very poor. Except for
Ozella's family, it was an off year for lots of people and they
could not make it for a variety of reasons. In 2005, we may head
back to Tennessee for our Reunion or we may choose another location.
If you have a preference or a strong opinion, please let Corrine
know so she can made a decision. Sad to say, at this point, the
Grissom Family Reunion is in question for the future.

at the 2005 Reunion!
