I would lik to know more about your Rhoda Degroat! My grandmother's is Margaret Mary Block maiden name Degroat, sister Rhoda Degroat she was named after somebody in the degorat family her father Walter Degroat spouse Mary Margaret Kennelly other children are Walter Degroat Anna Clare Degroat all born after the turn of the century 1900
also looking for links to Smith/Degroat Walter, Casper, Francis, Sachel. My great uncle traced some family history but passed away when I was younger, but have no record of it, just whatever my frand mother remebers she is 85 yrs old and her memoryisn't so good...but i know the Degroats have been in N.Y, as early as the 1600's and came over on a boat called the Pink cow that was translated in English. They traded fur with the Native Americans and some were farmers. The Degroats also fought in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.. the only Degroat I found was a Cornelious Degroat from prisioner records. This is all the info that I have on Degroat and i would appreciate it if anybody would get back to me or email me at email@example.com
Thank you for reading!!
