Re: Are you Grinwis?? Let me know ...
I hope you can help me. My grandmother was a Grinwis and I know nothing about her. She died when my mother was very young (3 years old). Her name was Francis Susan Grinwis. She was born June 10, 1895 and died September 30, 1922 in Paterson, New Jersey, USA. She married Frederick Knipscher in the US. My mother is Margaret Nellie Knipscher Van Emden. I cannot find Francis in any US census records so I believe that she probably only came to the US shortly before she married. There was a Grinwis family in Paterson that appears in census records but she is not recorded there. She may have been related to that family. I hope she is in your database. I would appreciate any info you can give me. Thanks.
