Three sons of Samuel Grandy (1763-1838) and Azuba Bishop (1767-1850) married Brockway girls. Samuel (1786-1858) md Phoebe Brockway (1788-1863); Benjamin (1788-1843) md Hannah Brockway (1793-1880) and William Wallace (1795-1876) md Celynda Brockway (1795-1879). The Grandy brothers were members of a very large family of 12 children - all but the last one being born in Reading, Windsor, Vermont. The family moved to St. Lawrence Co., NY in 1844. The Brockway girls were all daughters of Martin Brockway and Elizabeth Hildreth of Cheshire Co., New Hampshire. I don't have much more on the Brockways, except that Celynda was quite a letter writer and kept in touch with the rest of the family via newsy letters after she and her husband moved to Ohio and then to Iowa. I've seen her name spelled a number of ways, but she signed her letters as Celynda, so that appeared to be her preference. I do have a lot on the Grandys - back to the immigrant, Robert.
