George R. Grinnell, 1826-1862

I am trying to determine the parentage of George R. Grinnell. He was born around 1826 in Jefferson County, New York. It is possible that there could be some variation in the spelling of "Grinnell." He moved to Russia, Herkimer County and married Lucy Ann Hemstreet in 1856, joined the Union Army in 1861 and died from wounds received in the Battle of Bull Run in 1862. William W. Grinnell enlisted in the same infantry unit along with him but I do not know if he was a relative or brother of George. Any clues as to his identity would be most appreciated. I noted that there was a Jason Grinnell born approx. 1825 who lived in Theresa, Jefferson County, NY. It is possible that they might have been brothers.
