Hi, I just read your info on the Groomes U.E. of Kingston.

A David Grooms(of Waupoos Is. P.E.I. County Ontario) in my family married Elizabeth Galloway (of Watertown N.Y). There is some speculation that they are connected to the Kingston Groomes family.
The info that I have that is not confirmed is:
David Grooms b. abt 1799 d. 1823? Married Elizabeth Galloway
b. 1806 d. Waupoos 1886 d/o Charles Galloway (no info other than he may have migrated to NY from New England.

Children of the above:

Henry Grooms 1826-1874 m. Susan Westcott b.1833

Mary Eliza Grooms 1824-1899 m. William Wattam (Whattam)
of Waupoos Island.
My father was named after the Wattam side. John Wattam Dobbin.

Could there be a connection to your Groomes relatives and maybe even the George Galloway U.E also of Kingston?

Waupoos Island is not far west of Kingston so there might be a connection.

If you or anyone can help me it would be great.
