GORDENIER Steve Gordinier, Jan. 17, 1999
I am searching for any information on Nicholas Gordenier, husband of Jane, who had two sons Peter Gordenier, b. 7 Nov. 1812 and George Gordenier, b. 1817, both in Seneca County. Peter Gordenier married May Swick Osterhout, b. 5, July, 1835 in Macon Township, Lenawee County, Michigan. Mary was the daughter of another Seneca family, father John E. Swick, mother Susan Ann Kelley (widow of Barton Osterhout). The Gordenier family all migrated to Michigan as far as we know. We believe it is possible that the Gordenier name was a misspelling at some point of Gardenier which is a much more common Dutch name.

GRANT Byron Bray, April 11, 1999
Seeking information on the ancestors, descendants and families of JOHN S. GRANT. He lived in Seneca County (then Cayuga County) from around 1788 until around 1833, marrying PHEBE COVERT (b. circa 1790, NY). They both lived in or around this area until around 1835, when they moved to Michigan. They had five surviving children: Susannah Grant (m. Jacob BOICE, lived in Albany, N.Y. and/or New York City, N.Y.), Abram I. Grant (born c. 1811, in Seneca County, New York - m. Jane HARRIS - died 5 March, 1902, Adrian, MI), John Covert Grant (born c. 1819, probably in New York - m. Wealthy PALMER - died 27 March, 1909, Dover, MI), Mary (Grant) FLAGLER (married William W. Flagler and moved to Springfield, Illinois), and Darius Simpson Grant (b. 1830 - m. Minerva BOVEE - d. 1864, Dimondale, Eaton County, Michigan).
Abram Grant may have attended a seminary college in the Ovid area. Around 1835, Abram journeyed to Lenawee County, Michigan and was granted land there under the Land Grant Act of 1820. He then returned to Ovid and collected his parents (John & Phebe) and his siblings and moved to Lenawee County. Susannah Grant appears to have already married Jacob Boice and to have remained in New York, and so did not make this move.
I have a great deal of information on their descendants and will be happy to share it.
