I have since been able to find some answers and thought it should be posted in case someone should be looking and find it.1. Getting back to Lewis, he married a Sophia (one reference has her surname as SAGE).In most of the censuses he has said he was born in Vermont (in one it says New York), and that his parents were born Canadian.
Other stories suggest Noe and family went back and forth from the US.
I have covered all the Historical Societies north of the border, with Kathy Curtis being very helpful.
I have covered all the usual genealogy sites, Ancestry.com, etc.
In 1840 he is living in Wheelock Vermont and marries in 1841 Chloe BLANCHARD. I still have no answer on Maria/Abigail Smith GRISWOLD . I did not find the children of John in the school records indexed here from the 1800 - 1850. Davis, widow of Moses Raymond dies in Compton May 23, 1871 (she was 47), the local paper asked the NH and MA papers to please copy her death notice. 8, 1872 Emma Jane Raymond, daughter of the above couple died aged she was 21 years 10 mo. Brad [email protected] have an ancestor, Lewis BEEBE, who appears in Michigan in four census, 1850 thru 1880, then disappears.
His parents Samuel and Catherine also live out their days in Wheelock. Jeanie Thornton Roberts [email protected] wrote you back some time ago in reference to the Elisha GRISWOLD family. I have found death records on John GRISWOLD and Henry GRISWOLD . We've then traced most of his children, one of whom is my great grandfather.
