oh, i think i may have finally made a connection. i am researching andrew camp who married susan (susannah) garrison, in clinton county around 1844. they had at least three children i am aware of.....and that would be joseph henry, ulysses grant, and perhaps an elizabeth. on grant's obit, it listed her as mr. otto smith.
grant is my great g'pa. 1866-1940
so far all the second source tidbits i have picked up indicate the families migrated to ohio from New Jersey. if ANYONE has info on andrew or susannah, i'd be thrilled to hear it.
