I am searching for information on the surname Uptograph/Uptagrafft.
I am not a direct descendant of this family. I am helping an elderly cousin who we think his great grandmother might be of this family. Per the death record of his grandmother, Alice (Canfield) Phelps of Great Bend, Barton County, Kansas, Alice was born in Hancock County, Illinois andher mother, was Mary Uptograph, father: Mr Canfield.
A search of Hancock County, Pontoosuc Township, finds a Francis Canfield, wife Mary, both born OH with a daughter, Alice age 1 year in the 1870 census. Alice Canfield was born 1 April 1869. This fits.
But, according to the death record and 1900 and 1910 census records of Alice Canfield Phelps, her mother was born in Indiana.
We could use some suggestions and help in finding further connections to the Uptograph/Uptagrafft lineage.
