Hello, I appreciate all the information you have posted on Gratus. I have been doing research on the Follett family beginning with Robert and Persis (Black) Follett focused on Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I just recently figured out the New York link to Connecticut and it involves the parents of Gratus. Gratus Father and Mother are John Follett and Sarah (Sally)(Unknown). They were from Pittstown, Rensselaer, New York. John's Father is William Follett, born in 1745 in Windham, Windham, Connecticut. (There may be no record of this.) William married Lois Burnham in New London Connecticut about 1770 and moved to Pittstown. I'm at work so don't have all my data here--but, I'm certain this William is a grandson of Benjamin Follett and Patience Doughty. Most of that information is on FamilySearch. I have all the lineage at home if you want it. I still can't determine who all of Gratus brothers were, I have figured out who most of them are.
