In reply to:
My grandfather informed me that our family came from England. I am assuming that it was his grandparents. He said the family name in England was Grumm, for some reason which he did not explain as I was quite young at the time, after they settled here they dropped the ' r ' from the name. He said they arrived in New York, I am assuming around the early 1800's. If I remember correctly they moved to Maryland; Kentucky; Missouri and Oklahoma. The family was in Missouri when the Civil War began, three members of the family served in the war; two for the South and one for the North. All three survived the war, returned to Missouri and eventually moved to Oklahoma. All of the family stayed in Oklahoma except my Grandfathers father, he moved to Texas. I do not know if any of this information would have ties with your family or not, just a shot in the dark.
