My third great-grandmother, FRANCES GRUBBS EDWARDS was Wiley Grubbs sister, making Joe, her nephew. I stumbled upon my family history, in Monticello, where Joe Grubbs is buried, in a cemetery filled with my ancestors. I had no idea, as I always believed them to be from south Georgia. How humbling to know, the area I was always drawn to, was where they were from. It made me interested in Mr. Grubbs, and I was further stunned, to find out he was a relative. Nice to meet you, cousin! Be safe out there. There are too many names of fine officers in this memorial, already.

I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

Joe S. Grubbs was my great, great grandfather. I salute him for his service and dedication to duty. His father Wiley B. Grubbs was the Sheriff of Jasper County and died in office in 1879 of typhoid fever. I am proud to carry on the service and dedication to duty.
