There are conflicting reports surrounding Ellen Degraw. One source gives her maiden name as Hetchler, says her first husband's surname was Degraw, and states that George Degraw Brininstool was her son from this first marriage, having taken his stepfather's surname.
To complicate things, George Degraw Brininstool married Elizabeth Bley, whose mother was a Hetsler. Even more interesting is the tidbit that Elizabeth Bley's grandaunt Barbara "Nelly" Hetsler is reported to have married a DeGraw.
