This accompanying portraiture of Private Daniel Marion Grider (1888-1949) was taken in 1918 at Camp Zachary Taylor, Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.
Private Grider was a lifelong resident of Adair County, Kentucky. Daniel Marion Grider was the husband of Effie Burton Grider (1896-1987); he is the son of James Grider (1826-1909) and Mary Margaret Bryant Grider (1846-1936); the grandson of Frederick Grider (ca. 1781-1853), Sarah Perryman Grider (ca. 1787-ca. 1884), Daniel Bryant (ca. 1803-ca. 1891), and Lucilla Smith Bryant (ca. 1806-ca. 1887); the father of James Chrisley Grider (1922-2005), Nona Marie Grider Cook (1924-1996), Stella Frances Grider Cross, Katherine Louise Grider Lepiarczyk, and Walter Edwin Grider (1933-2005); and the grandfather of James Arthur Grider, Joy Lynn Grider Carpenter, Jerrilyn Kay Ballou Emberton, Fred Daniel Cross, Ronald Eugene Cross, Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II, Karen Lepiarczyk Mercer, David August Lepiarczyk, and Phillip Edwin Grider. May God bless all members of the Daniel Marion Grider family always.
October 2 is the birthday of Daniel Marion Grider.
Papa Daniel's character was sterling; the best of all men of all ages. His family loved and revered him. Heaven is richer with his presence among God's Holy Army of Saints! Papa Daniel's love and devotion to God, his family, the United States of America, his countrymen, and friends was and is unsurpassed. E.H. Lepiarczyk II
