Are you looking for Julia and Royal Grandy information? My records are that they moved from NY to PA. I am working on this Grandy family line.

I'm looking for information about any Grandys in Wayne, Oswego, Seneca Counties, leading to the discovery of Julia and a "Grandy Plot" records about Julia Grandy Van Tassel's immediate family e.g.
Thanks if you have possible leads. Danke.
P.S. I know She married Abraham Van Tassel her Second marriage, so doubt she moved to PA.

Yes, I am working on this line also. In a letter I have it is mentioned that Royal Grandy came from Wales and married a Smith whose parents came from Scotland. Do you have a record of Royal Grandy's parents? Any information you have on this family would be appreciated. I have a map of the location of their home in Potter Co. PA.

My great-great grandparents were:
Benjamin Grandy and Rowena Johnson of Wolcott, Wayne Co.,NY.
Their daughter Electa Maria Mary Grandy . born About 1822 in sodus Point, Wayne Co., NY, was my Great-Grandmother.
She married Horace L. Quimby before 1840 in Wolcott, NY. They eventually moved to Dale, Wis.
Their daughter, Parthena Lindsey Quimby, born about 1860, in or around Dale Wis., married my Grandfather,Israel Jason Cannon, son of Gilbert Loriegn (Grey) Cannon on July 11, 1886 in Marion, Wis. They had 6 children, including my mother Eva Rowena Cannon.
My mother Eva Rowena Cannon married my father, Charles Samuel Thomas on Sept. 26, 1914 in Waukesha, Wis. They moved to Remsen, NY around 1916.
Their last address was Lee Center, Oneida Co., NY. My mother died Nov. 21, 1964.
I was their 9th. child, born: Sarah Elizabeth Thomas on March 29, 1926 in Marcy, NY.
They had 12 children in all. Most of them still live in the Rome, Oneida and Syracuse areas of NY State.
I married John A. Sweeney, of Kingston, Pa. on June 23,1944.I now live in Washington State.
I would like more information on my Grandy and Johnson ancestors in NY State if possible.
Please reply to if you have information that I am seeking, please leave me an address or phone number where you can be contacted.
Gratefully; Sally T. Sweeney

Hi Greg;
I have done a lot of research on these Grandy's, who are my relatives. I still have not found out who Rowena Johnson, wife of Benjamin Grandy was. Do you know who her parents were?
That is what I will be working on next.
Thanks, Sally

Hello, What child to you go through?

I have not found much on Rowena Johnson either. I was sent this, it's assumed her, but not sure. (Clyde Times: Dec 13 1877 p2c5 Roana Grandy died)

Another person had a old piece of paper that listed her as born May 5, 1798 MA, died Nov 24, 1877.

The IGI had this person, but I've yet to look into it. (Rowena Johnson b. 2-2-1797, parants Laban Johnson Lucy, Hollisten, Middlesex Co. Mass.) Maybe Laben'r will might list who this Rowena married.
