Below is info about Charles De Groat, his family and his daughter Mary.Not much is known about him or his family.The only facts we have are that in 1880 he was living on Pacific Ave. in Brooklyn, NY.From 1880 on Charles probably never left Brooklyn.Where he came from in New York is vague.Either from Long Island just east of NYC or somewhere north along the Hudson.His family possibly came from Canada.We'd love to find out more about William Sammis and Mary De Groat.It is quite an interesting topic as to whether or not they were married.I hope somebody cane give us a hand with this roadblock.I'm sure there are many applicable records in NYC, sadly it's 6000 miles away.
Anyway, thank you for hearing me and I hope you can help us.
