Ellen Degraw, Canada > NY > MI, 1817

Seeking information on the ancestors, descendants and related lines of Ellen Degraw born 7 Apr 1817 in Canada; died 21 Mar 1886 Waterloo Twp, Jackson Co, Michigan. Reported to have sisters named Leah and Rebecca. Married secondly George Washburn Brininstool.

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.

Any information relating to the Degraw/Hetsler/Bley/Brininstool connections will be welcomed.
