from Rufus Grimes's book. On page II of Rufus's book, he states:
"If this book
succeeds in arousing in my younger relatives, an interest in their
antecedents and an ambition to become their worthy successors, I
shall be happy and shall consider my efforts well worthwhile. And
to all my relatives, past, present, and future, this record is
happily and lovingly dedicated."
his published work The Grimes-Llewellyn Families 1635-1972, Rufus
Grimes did not verify a direct link between that Thomas Grimes of London
and John Grimes I who came to the Jamestown Colony in 1635; while no
record directly links them, facts do imply a father-son relationship. Rufus
Grimes did establish a direct link between John Grimes I of the Jamestown
Colony and Thomas Grimes I (1738-1797) who came to Edgecombe County,
North Carolina about 1768 and married Chloe Llewellyn of Tyrrell County,
North Carolina about that same year.

About the enhanced "My Personal Family
The My Personal Family Lineage on unnumbered pages 62-68 of the
original 1972 edition is now available in a separate file online.
Since each descendant should have their own "My Personal Family
Lineage," it is offered as a MS Word 2003 document. You can print it
and make handwritten entries, or as an option, make keyboard entries.
The form is protected from inadvertent layout changes, but it is not
password protected: so you can change it. However, only the layout
online, unchanged, can be used as an alternative method to submit
amendments to the online family tree.
If you do not have Word on your computer, the file is compatible with
"OpenOffice writer" which is free online at www.download.openoffice.org
