THOMAS H. GRINTER, capitalist, was born in Logan County, Ky., September 12, 1823, and is the third of a family of nine children born to Samuel and Nancy (Hill) Grinter, natives of Virginia.  His father was a farmer, and our subject grew to manhood on the latter's farm.  When nineteen years old, on January 1, 1842, he came to Cadiz.  Here he first clerked in Hiram Thompson's store for three years; he then bought out J.E. Thompson, and after various changes in the style of the firm, it finally became known as Thompson & Grinter.  This partnership continued two years, and at the end of this time the latter sold out.  He next purchased the office of Sheriff from James Garnett, which he held for two years; he then engaged in merchandising under the firm name of Grinter & Baker; he remained in this business two years, then sold out, and again bought the office of Sheriff from Stanley Thomas.  Since then he has been engaged attending to his private affairs, and managing estates for others, also acting as guardian for minors.  Probably no other man in Trigg County has made or spent as much money as Mr. Grinter.  Coming to Cadiz in 1842, with but $2, he is today the richest man in Christian or Trigg County; his wealth in part consists of $120,000 in Government bonds; he also owns several stores and residences in Cadiz, among which might be mentioned the Cadiz House, erected in 1880.  This building, including the ground on which it stands, cost $18,000.  He is by far the largest tax payer of anyone in Trigg County.  Mr. Grinter was married, in 1850, to Mary, a daughter of William Redd, of Trigg County.  This union has been blessed with seven children, two sons and five daughters. Mr. Grinter has been Town Treasurer, Trustee of the Jury Fund, and Master Commissioner of the Circuit Court.  He is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
GEORGE T. McCAIN was born November 25, 1852, in Trigg County; he is the third child of a family of five born to John A. and Caroline (Wharton) McCain; the former was born in North Carolina in 1816; he died in Graves County, Ky., in 1867; he had been engaged in merchandising since a boy, and was one of the oldest merchants of Wallonia; he was also largely engaged in the tobacco business; his mother was born in Paris, Tenn., in 1821; she died in 1860.  The subject of this sketch, after attending school, entered his father's store as a clerk, where he remained till the death of his father.  In the fall of 1876, he bought out T.W. Saffarans, who had been engaged in the grocery and liquor business in Cadiz; his stock amounted to about $1,200; since then this business has largely increased; he now carries a stock of about $4,000. Mr. McCain was married in 1878 to Miss Georgia Grinter, daughter of Thomas H. Grinter.  She was born in Cadiz. Two children bless this union--one son and one daughter.
