Elizabeth Ann Stroud:

Notes:

!NOTE:Lawrence Wood said she was a daughter of an Isaac Stroud who died, and his widow re-married a Stewart.
The only widow I could find was Rosannah Stewart (1780/90) in Rabun in 1840, but gone by 1850. She may be widow Stroud, married a Stewart, then widowed again. If so, then this must be Elizabeth's mother;

!NAMED:19 Feb 1896 Franklin Press "Mrs. Manson GRIST died quite
suddenly Wednesday morning at the age of about 80 years. Mr. G.W.
GREENWOOD came to Franklin after a coffin for her". REFERENCE: Macon
County Echoes Vol 8 No 3 Fall 1996 page 16;



!NOTE:Years ago, Lawrence Wood (deceased) gave me Elizabeth's name, and said she was a Stroud, and that she married Manson Grist and that her father was "Isaac Stroud" who died, and who's wife then remarried to a Mr. Stewart. This was based on family tradition, and I was unable to confirm any of the facts.

Family Traditions almost always get some facts skewed over the years, and I did find a Julia Grist (c1830) who married William Stewart in 1849 in Rabun Co, GA, so perhaps that is where the Stewart connection comes in. There was an apparent widow Rosanna Stewart (1780/90) in Rabun in 1840, and Manson and Elizabeth named a daughter "Rosanna". Could this widow Stewart be a former widow Stroud? Was Isaac Stroud's wife named "Rosanna?" More research is needed in order to determine if Elizabeth Ann Stroud (1817) is indeed a daughter of Isaac Stroud, but for now I'll leave her here pending evidence to the contrary. I should also note that I've not seen any direct evidence that Elizabeth was a Stroud at all.
Elizabeth Ann Stroud married Manson Grist before ca 1836, presumably in GA, but no marriage record was found.

Manson Grist was born ca 1816/17 in South Carolina, county unknown. I don't know who his parents were for sure, but there was an older Benjamin Grist living near him who is most likely his father.
