     According to his obituary, while Grimes was in the west, he married and had a son and two daughters. He left this family and when he returned later he found his wife remarried. He deeded her the farm in the west and returned to New Castle.3
     According to his obituary, his life had been one full of eccentricities. He vowed when Lincoln was elected that he would not cut his hair until another Democratic president was elected. When Grover Cleveland was elected president, his attorny Robert W. McCandless stopped him on the street and said "Bub, we're in power. Now you can cut your hair Grimes." Grimes looked doubtful and then walked away with a sad expression in his eyes, and he never cut his hair.3
