I have traced the Grinstead family back to Virginia prior to the Revolution but have some gaps for the period between then and their presence in Harrison County. They later moved on to Oregon or Washington. My Grandparents had three daughters - Oda, Lavar, and Hazel (my Mother). Oda and Lavar were born in Harrison County and are buried at Blytedale cemetary.

2. Samuel Saunders born Feb.1837 bap Bethania Independent Chapel, Talgarth Wales, Mar. 19th, 1837
*Ann ? born 1842 Wales. May have died about 1895.
3. Mattie Saunders born about 1869 MO.
3. John Saunders born about 1873 MO.
3. Elizabeth "Lizzie" Saunders born about July 1879.
About 1868 Sam and Ann moved along with his brother Philip and family to Yellow Creek Township, St. Catharine, Linn Co., MO. In 1870, Samuel was a farmer while Ann was keeping house. Shortly after their arrival, Mattie was born. Then about 1874 their son John was born. By June 3rd of 1880, Samuel and his family had moved north a few hundred miles to Oskaloosa, Iowa, and were well settled. The census record of 1880 shows Samuel being a laborer and Ann is keeping house. There is no sign of little Mattie, so I think she died. John is 6 years of age and the newest child Elizabeth is 10 months old and was born in Iowa. This means they were in Iowa by July 1879. Since the 1890 records are missing, the next contact with the family of Samuel is in the 1900 census of Harrison Co., MO in the town of Blythedale Village. This time I only find Samuel, born Feb. 1837 age 63 and farming, and his youngest daughter "Lizzie", born July 1879, age 20 years. The 1900 record indicates that Samuel was only married 5 years, but due to the fact that his wife Ann is missing from the records, I suspect this could be an error. That means he has been widowed 5 years, or re-married 5 years ago, or his wife is not staying at home during this time.

William HALL Sr. was born in Calvert County Maryland in 1804. He married Margaret KING and moved to Greene County Indiana about 1838. Around 1857 he and his family left Indiana and spent about three years in Illinois. William and his children moved to Harrison County about 1860. It is believed Margaret died in Illinois since she is not listed in the 1860 census with William. In 1867, William married Elizabeth ELLIOTT in Harrison County. They had one daughter, Mary HALL. William lived in northeastern Harrison County (Clay and Madison townships) until his death in 1880.

William Sr.'s children that also lived in Harrison County include: William D. HALL, Charles Wesley HALL, and Zachariah Henry HALL.

William D. HALL married Mary A. THOMPSON, the daughter of Washington and Lydia THOMPSON, who also lived in Harrison County. Charles HALL married Sarah Ann BAKER. Zachariah HALL married Sarah C. KETTERS.

William D. HALL, also died in 1880. His wife, Mary, and their children moved to Kansas and eventually settled in Oklahoma after the land rush of 1893. Charles HALL also settled in Oklahoma. Zachariah stayed in Harrison County.
