Civil War Captain James Samuel DeGroff married Elizabeth Sours, moved to Kansas City Kansas in 1878 (and is buried there).One son, James Sherman DeGroff married Harriet May "Hattie" Chrisman in 1887. James Sherman married Sadie Irene Brazelton on 1/25/1909. They had 4 children, one being Esther Alberta, who married Marvin Long Moles on May 20, 1930. Marvin and Esther were my parents. Could be two different Williams, but an awful lot of similarities. Thanks, Joan. - Sharon.
