Janet, We are researching the same Grose line. My wife's is thru Jacob Mckendries'dau lucy who m Joseph Dennis. Her grandparents. I see there is a lot of speculation that Samuel m Mary Gensel of Berks Co, and lived in Berks Co, Yet two or three census records say his sone were born in Lancaster Co. Do ypu know if anyone has researched the Lancaster records for a Samuel Grose. I do not find one on the census but... Also there is the Pendleton Co deed that references a Samuel Grose Jr. Could this mean Samuel was the son of Samuel, and not Jacob as some have suggested. Usually a Jr means there was an older Sameul in the area, not necessarily a father/son. Any thoughts welcome. I'm not trying to say the Mary Gensel or Jacob is incorrest just ask questions.
