I wish I knew! His entry in the Michigan census lists his birth place New York. I have to assume that the family was in western New York state, and that he went across the Great Lakes into Michigan looking for work. There were many DeGraws in Kent County Michigan at that time, so he probably went to family there. All this is speculation, though.
I'm open to any suggestions as to where to look next!
