My great grandfather was Charley Grimes, and he lived in the Richland Community, in Little River County , Arkansas, near Foreman.  Charley has been my brick wall in starting my geneolgy quest.  He is noted as having the birth date of March 10, and the year of his birth remains a mystery.  In some records he give 1883, and it varies to 1885, & 1886.

He was married several times, and the mother of all three sons, Edward born in 1900 and supposedly passed away in 1910, and Marion born in 1911, deceased in 1959, my beloved grandfather Loyd B. Grimes, born in 1914, decease in 1984.  Their mother was Sarah Virginia Golden born in 1886 and died in 1918.

My grandfather, Loyd, did not have any information to share on his father's side, but supposedly had an Uncle Ed, that his oldest sibling was named for.  Papa Charley passed when I was only 5 or 6, but he was not a very educated man, and I doubt he was able to read or write, despite what some census state. His spouse at the time of his death was Gertie Morgan.

Hopefully, this information will prove helpful to you.  Wish that I had more information to share.
