He is the son of of the Rev Norval R. Nancy (McLaurin)Granberry. To my knowledge he and his wife Fanny Simms had no children. She died while he was in a federal prison (near Johnson Island) during the Civil War. he has 8 siblings. If you need more please let me know.

Can you state in what state and county and the name of the cemetery in which you found the original headstone of Gen. H. B. Granbury? Also what year was this taken? This was posted through Ancestry.com and findagrave.com I believe. I know the new headstone is located in Granbury Cemetery in Granbury, TX.

This is where the trouble starts. The Hiram I referred to was Brig. Gen. Hiram Granberry/Granbury born 1831 in MS. He married Fannie Sims 31 March 1858, McLennan Co. TX. He was the son of Rev. Norvell R. Granberry and Nancy McLaurin.The Hiram who married Elizabeth Joyce was born in 1815 GA the brother to Rev. Norvell R. Granberry. I have been searching Tarrant Co. TX and have lost this family after 1863, then another family which might be the wife Elizabeth and two sons, Norvel and Will, show up in Denton Co. TX 1870 and then I find a James in 1880 Denton Co. TX. How I would love to find where Hiram and Elizabeth Granberry are buried. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Sorry, my cousin gave me the wrong name. It is the grave of Fannie that I am looking. I believe she had an operation in 1862 Baltimore, MD. and died later.

Thanks, EDDIE

Gen Hiram Granberry (as born) Granbury (as killed) buried as Granberry, City of Granbury changed tombstones and renamed him Granbury a few years ago.
His wife Fannie took sick at Ft Donelson while awaiting his release, after being captured. Her health failed and she had to return to the South to Mobile, Ala best I can find out she died there shortly after Gen Granberrys release and going to be at her side. She most likely is buried there.
Hope this helps Carl
