!REFERENCE: 21-Sep-2004 emails from great-grandaughter Ann Nobles to Don Braffitt, "I still have to find the census entries for my father (Haydon W. Grubb) and my grandfather (Samuel J. Grubb, son of Andrew) for 1910. Samuel worked for the L&N railroad and were probably living in "camp cars" with a section gang crew that year, I have yet to locate the family. They may have been somewhere in Kentucky, Illinois, or even possibly in Oklahoma. The 1880 entry you found for Andrew in Ashe County, NC, appears to be Andrew Jackson Grubb and wife Elizabeth Egner and their children. Andrew, born Feb 1836, was 10 years older than wife Elizabeth, born Feb 1846. The ages for the children fit with my information. The one-year-old twins Nora and Cora are probably the twins I have as Cora and Delia (Sedelia). The son John A. is probably the son I have as Johnny W. Evelyn Egner Watson, of Corbin, KY, is a descendant of Elizabeth's brother John R. Egner. Her father Edgar Egner knew both Cora and Delia well. He said the twins Cora and Sedelia were born in North Carolina while the family was traveling to Kentucky in a covered wagon. This fits with the census entry for 1880. When I used your link to the 1880 census and browsed back and forth from the Grubb entry, I discovered many Richardson families around Peak Creek, Ashe County, NC. The mother of Andrew ("Jack" Grubb) was Eleanor "Nellie" RICHARDSON, born North Carolina, probably Ashe County. The statement that Andrew made in 1912 at age 76 "that he had been a resident of Whitley County, Kentucky, since 1876" was for obtaining a pension. Any time away from Whitley County would not have been included in his statements for fear of being denied. ... I have death certificates for Andrew Jackson Grubb, his wife Elizabeth Egner Grubb, and two of their sons: Samuel and Jacob Anderson Grubb."
