Carlos was b1828, sister Hepsey Ann b1831 and brother William b1826. Carlos was raised by his aunt Mabel Strong Griffing b1799, d1893 in New York state and Michigan. Hepsey and William were raised by other relatives in Colorado and Iowa. I understand that Mabel was from CT, but we don't know anything about the parents of Carlos, Hepsey and William. I have a lot of information regarding the descendants of Carlos, but no information regarding the ancestors. My mother said that my grandfather told her that his ancestors were Russian Jews, but we haven't been able to verify it. If anyone has information regarding this family, please let me know.
