The GRAY-WINT Family Home PageUpdated September 5, 2000
|I am researching the WINT-KRANICH families from Washtenaw County, Michigan. Other Surnames in the family are: FRANK, GUTEKUNST, ONLYSORG, STEEB or STAIB, VAN ORMER. The families lived in the Ann Arbor area migrating from Canada and New York. Hard working,competitive cigar makers and bee keepers in the Old Northside of Ann Arbor never thought their families would mix but, they produced a grand family that still resides in the area.|
My mother's KISER & ENGLAND families are from the Fostoria, Ohio area and GRAY & BLAKE family are from Medina, Ohio area. Wesley Gray met Zora Kiser at a local glass manufacturer that made glass chimneys for oil lamps. He blew the glass chimneys and she etched them. They moved to Ann Arbor and raised a wonderful family. It was a privilege to know the Gray Girls of Ann Arbor.
I am happy to share any information about any of these family lines.
