"Realizing that after the death of my parents, I had lost a lot of information on our family history, I decided to take it upon myself to do some searching and pick up all the history I could and publish it in book form, for the benifit of all it may concern.
"It was soon evident that I could not get very far without a lot of help from others in out family tree, so, at this time I would like to acknowledge, with thanks, for the help and advice I have received from all the fine people, in furnishing so much information on their individual families.
"This work may not have been done in a very professional maner, but it was done to the best of my ability, to list all our known relatives and give as much information on each person as I could find from searching various records and from the help of our good relatives. You will notice there is considerably more information on some individuals than others. I have tried not to be partial to anyone, but where certain information is missing, it is just because I did not have this information.
"For the sake of posterity, it would be my suggestion to each person receiving one of these books, that they add their future information to the book, before it is lost, and to show all information available on the "in-laws" side of their family. I do hope it will be realized that in trying to get all the information collected, there will be numerous errors and omissions and I request your forgiveness where such might occur.

From Lucy Vickers Grisham:
I am sending you info I have found out about this Ralph III- son of Ralph, Jr. and wife Sarah- who died in York Co. SC- It is definitely him who was in both Anson Co. records and then York Co. records - I guess since SC boundaries were formed between 1785 -1800.
The way I knew is because this Ralph's daughter married Michael Berry who
appears on one of the deed records in Anson with Ralph. I would assume also
that Michael Berry is connected somehow with the

I have incorporated his info into the records for John Vickers of Edgecombe

had son John who is thought to have gone into
