You can't exclude the battery unless it passed a load test. It could read 12+ volts then die under a load.
As far as the ground, yes the one to the engine block and any you find on the body.
As far as the multimeter, I need you to check voltage. There should be two wires at the starter, a large one and a small one. The large one will have 12 volts, but the small one should only get 12 volts when the key is in the start position.
Let me know how it goes.
