Grigsby hunt in Tennessee

My John C. Grigsby was born abt. 1856 in TN. Both of his parents were also born in TN. I retrieved this little information from John's marriage certificate. Now I recieved other info from some decendents - John's father was also named John and he was hung in TN. as a horse theif. There is a Grigsby/White and a Grigsby/Lincoln marriage in our line. The Grigsby/Lincoln marriage is not the commonly known one, but another Grigsby/Lincoln marriage. I would appreciate help in finding ancestor's of this family line as well as other family members.

Christina Scharrer

Christina Scharrer was born 18 Sep. 1853 in Zu Klingenhoff, Bayern, Germany and she died 28 Feb. 1883, I believe she died during childbirth. Her family came to the United States and at some point they lived in Kentucky where her younger sister was born. Family talk says the younger sister was Christina's husband's second wife. If someone knows anything about this family, I would appreciate your help. Thank you

Looking for Johann Huffman

Johann Huffman was my GGGrandfather, he was born 28 May 1847 in Germany and died 27 March 1915 in Louisville, KY., USA. He married twice, first to Christina Scharrer {my GGGrandmother) and then to Catherine Goldman. If anyone would have more on him, I would greatly appreciate it. Oh, I have the location of the cemetery where he is buried and I have been there taking a picture.
