According to my family history, John Grose immigrated to the U.S. with Peter Styvesant, Dutch Colonial Governer appointed by the Dutch West India Co. on May 11, 1647 to New Amsterdam.Three Ships arrived that day.The "Great Gerrit", "Princess", "Zwol", and "Raet". I checked available ship passenger lists and his name was not mentioned.Crew were not mentioned, so I an assuming he was a crew member since he was English not Dutch.
My Ancestral details pick up 5 generations later with Isaac Grose, which I have no info on, married to Mary Crow,born 1783 - died 1893 of which I have no further info on. Their Son Ephriam Grose, born 1815 in Washington, Virginia, married in Jennings, Indiana to Sara Meek born 1816 in Marion, Indiana - Sara died 1840 in Fountain, Indiana . Their son William T. Grose born Mar 8,1840 in Jackson, Indiana - died Sep 12, 1918 in Havelock, Nebraska who married Elizabeth Findlay 1837 - 1817 Jackson, Indiana.
