Well, it's new to me anyways - thanks to Pam O for sending me to the Salisbury pages - I've been hot on this since. And a thanks to Vicki B. as well for her ground-work. Please contact me for more info and please send on corrections or questions! (P, I also have Cynthia JENNINGS family much more figured out - contact me for more) Cheers, Andrew

Here is an updated outline descendant tree for Robert B. GROAT and Cynthia JENNINGS. Please note in particular corrections to his birth locale as CANADA; his son is noted as Robert Y. GROAT Jr. along with this father as Robert B. GROAT, Sr. (when they registered for the Mexican American War, 1846-1848) and that Robert Jr. notes his birth place as **LOWER CANADA** (QUE). I take far more stock in his reporting it here than in the Census some 51 years later when he is in an asylum (though he may be working there I believe he was either elderly or ill) where this appears as the *only* place he is noted as being born in NY. Furthermore I am gathering more info but Robert B. GROAT was also present and active in the Niagara District Court c. 1829-1832 - but I am not clear on which "side" of the border he was working on. But is should be noted that Robert B. GROAT, Sr.'s father was with the Lincoln Militia for **CANADA** so it seems highly unlikely that Robert B. would be working for the American judicial courts system right after his father had been fighting same 19 years earlier - but stranger things have happened. I mention it only to suggest that perhaps the children were born in Niagara-on-the-Lake on the Canadian side.

Also Cynthia JENNINGS' brother Samuel JENNINGS seems to have moved along with the GROATs to MI (not sure who was following who) - it simply illustrates that the children of both families were there, or born there, anytime after 1833-1846.

I'd love to hear from feedback and corrections!

Thanks
Andrew
