I'm looking for any information about Lyrena (GROUT) ROUNDS. She was
married to Jeremia ROUNDS 1794-1871. Lyrena was the youngest of 5 kids of
Ferdinand GROUT, wife's name unknown. Lyrena had 4 brothers: John C. Grout,
Anson H. Grout, Willard W. Grout and George C. Grout. My grandfather was
Otto Rounds born & raised in Lakeside, Ontario died July 1987. His
Grand-father was Spafford Rounds born 1824 son of Jerimia and Lyrena Rounds.

Seeking information on parents of James Clifford BAILEY b. 06 Jan 1895
in Michigan. By 1900 the family was living in Seneca Falls, Seneca, NY. The
only clue we have as to his parents is that his mother was listed with his
family on the 1900 NY Census. The first name however was almost illegible
but appeared to be "Josephia"..she would have been born in approx 1864 in
Michigan according to the 1900 NY Census. Her father was listed as having
been born in France and her mother in Canada (noted that the mother spoke
English). Anyone researching BAILEY recognize this obscure little group?
