Grandmother told us we were supposedly related to Betsy Ross, legendary seamstress of first flag of our country. Would love to prove (or disprove) this. Thanks for any help.

June, I am a descendant of Sarah Griscom, Betsy's sister. Has your Grandmother given you any names? Email me if you would like to discuss.

Saw your post, I'm am related to Betsy by marriage, her third husband's side. I have so much information about the Griscom's side. I have at least 7 generations. Let me know what you are looking for and I'll give it to you. I will tell you that the Griscom family history has some very interesting stories. Some alot of people don't know. She was a very bold woman for her time. If I can help you out I'll be more than happy to do it, take care.

I too have been told that I am a descendant of Betsy Ross, but I'm not having any luck proving it one way or the other. My great great grandfather was William Ross Brown, from West Chester, PA, b:Aug.14,1834 and according to his daughter (my deceased great grandmother) Laura Brown Dion, she always told the story that her father's mother's sister was Betsy Ross. According to Wm.'s death certificate, his mother's name was Sarah but no maiden name was given. I have been searching for the past 3 years and I would be very grateful if anyone has any information to prove or disprove this legend.

Sharon--None of those names seem to connect me to you. My relationship is probably through the Burson line (my mother's maiden name). Sorry.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I don't know if you are in the area of the Gloucester County Historical Society, 17 Hunter Street in Woodbury, New Jersey, but they have on display a large picture of the Griscom family tree and some information on the family. Unfortunately the day I visited, they were getting ready to close so I didn't have enough time to search through all of the documents they have. I'll keep your mother's maiden name with my research notes and I'll let you know if I come across any information.
