Grigsby, Nathaniel (1811-90).

Grigsby's family moved from Kentucky to Spencer County, Indiana, just before the Lincolns and were their close neighbors. AL and Nathaniel Grigsby grew up and went to school together, and Grigsby's brother Aaron married AL's sister Sarah. Grigsby remained in touch with AL long after the latter left Indiana. An early Republican and a AL supporter in 1860, Grigsby enlisted with four of his sons in the Tenth Indiana Cavalry in 1863.
