I am searching for any info on Elvy Selby (b 1824/26).

She married Edmund Stamps Sr in Putnam/White Co TN and the lived about 5 miles south of Monterey TN. She died in 1888 and is buried in Henry cemetery there.

One of Edmund's brothers (James? Sanford?)married a Selby from nearby Board Valley who is related to the Grassy Cove Selbys somehow.

My grandpa, Mitchell Stamps (b 1895)said we were related to some people in Grassy Cove and this is the line is the only way I can come back to that area. When I searched this about 4 years ago, I asked someone who had written a book or two on the Selbys, and we could not make the connection. I was beginning to think that I might have the last name incorrect, but I found documentation today that indicated that her name was indeed Selby.

Anyone know anything on this mystery Selby?
