A reference to an obituary for Elizabeth Grubb was found on a defunct web page done by Jeff Carter: I have a copy of an obit for Elizabeth “Aunt Betty” (Porter) Grubb wife of Conrad Grubb. ( This seems to change his name from Coonrod to Conrad). She was born 2-24-1828 in Grayson Co. VA. and died 4-17-1928, (living a little more than a 100 years) at the home of her daughter Mrs Worth Clark in Waynoda, Oklahoma. She was preceded in death by several years by her two sons Clark and Isom. Her other child was a daughter. She is survived by 9 Grand children and Several Great Grand children. Her request was to be brought back to be buried beside her husband in the old Porter cemetery (old home place of Aunt Betty) now owned by Mr. Frank Grubb. This was written by one who knew her, Mittie R. Young, Grant, Va.
