Hi Dortha...On the Pitts family, I have a Hulda Grills (was married first to Unknown Spence and had daughter Meg Margaret Spence)who married as his second wife, to William Curtis Pitts, about 1890. I have that they had two daughters, Huldah Arvilla (married Jake 'Jinx' Helms) and Laura Alice (married Elmer Webb). Is this right? Do you have who his first wife was?

I have followed this Grills line back to the Mayflower...

Thanks for any info...
