Grizzard. It looks more like the Mary that married Thomas Grizzard as they
had a female child with the initals of P.A. and Thomas died in the Civil War
on 08 May 1862 in Camp Magnum, NC. She would have been a Grizzard but only by
marriage. I believe this Mary to be Mary Baker.because in the 1860 Census
they had a Mary Baker age 62 living in the household with them. This is just
a hunch no prove.
Here is the Census entries:
Greene Co. 1850
Jesse Grizzard B. 1796
Elizabeth Grizzard B. 1796
Allen (my ancestor) 1833
Mary Ann 1837
Pitt Co. 1860 ( I believe same people)
Jesse Grizzard 1786
Lucy Grizzard 1839
Mary A. Baker 1836
Jesse Baker 1856
Next door was the son Thomas:
Thomas Grizzard 1832
Mary Grizzard 1839
P.A. Female Born 1859
Mary Baker 1798 occupation washerwoman
I hope this helps you!
