I dont think the children were Toler. But then again why wo uld they be in the household of Floyd and Martha Varney Grimmett in 1900 a s Grimmetts?
John Grimmett the son who married Laura Lafferty has Hanna h living in their household in 1910 and 60 y/o
In 1920 Sarah (sallie ) is living in Mingo County Magnoli a district with her children Willie and a daughter and infant son.
In 1930 Sarah and her son "Ebb" who is actually Willie wh o was known as William Ebb Grimmett are now in Red Jacket. We know that Jo hn as well as most of his descendants to come were coal miners and worke d for the Red Jacket Consolidated Coal company at Red Jacket. John's ow n son Hulen died there in 1947
In 1930 John is divorced from Laura and living with his sis ter Sarah's son William and his wife Ida in 123/129 household Mingo County

1880 West Logan census has
wm grimmett- 69
tabitha -59
phoebe- 33
george- 21
then the next household is:
Toler Hannah-27
Rush -2
John W.- 1

More definate proof is needed to verify that there ever wa s a marriage between John or a James Grimmett to Hannah Hatfield.
The annotated census indicates that there was a John the so n of William and Tabbitha Grimmett.But there is no other proof as of yet.
Where did Melvin Toler Go? if there is evidence that Melvi n Toler married Hannah in 1877 the age of Sarah suggest that she was born i n 1874 before the marriage took place.
the children are Raised as grimmetts from then on as no on e knows what happened from 1890-1900.
I hope everyone is not as confused as I am right at this mo ment.
Thanks for listening,
