                             GROOM FAMILY
My GROOM family begins with Samuel F. GROOM.

GROOM, Samuel F., was born Jan.15, 1802 in Caswell Co, NC.
       Samuel died July 6,1861 in Henry Co, TN., and is
       buried in GROOM Cemetery. He married on July 20,1824
       in Caswell Co, NC. to Francis MAYO SCOTT.
Wife-SCOTT, MAYO-Elizabeth, born Aug.7,1805 Caswell Co, NC.
       Francis died July 5,1852 in Henry Co, TN.,and also
       is buried in GROOM Cemetery. To this union nine
       children were born. They are.

After Aug. 18, 1846 when his daughter Sophia was born 
and before Nov. 20, 1850 when the census for the county 
was taken, Samuel had moved his family there.
Here is the 1850 census for Samuel's family.

Satira had married David WALKER on Sept, 30, 1845 in 
Caswell Co, NC. Eliza Ann had married on Dec.10, 1842
