Surnames: Shurtleff Daniels Clark Ward Embury Spafford Miles
I am tracing the family of Samuel and Gratia Shurtleff (ancestors and descendants). Much of the info I have comes from Descendants of William Shurtleff (Roy Shurtleff), as well as some family, census and burial info. Their daughter, Esther Mary Shurtleff (1836-1926) was my great-grandmother. I am especially interested in Gratia's family. I had believed her name to be Lydia Daniels (from Roy Shurtleff and the IGI), but census and burial records show her name to be Gratia. The death notice for Angeline Shurtleff Clark shows her name to be Gratis Damels, which I interpret as Gratia Daniels. The Daniels family had intermarried with the Shurtleffs at least one other time. Samuel Shurtleff's sister Amy (1810-1895) was married to Samuel Daniels, son of Esther and Andrew Daniels, according to Roy Shurtleff. Could Samuel Daniels be Gratia's brother? Does anyone know anything about the Daniels family? I would love some help on this one. Here is an outline of this part of the Shurtleff clan. Thanks!
