I was very interested to read about the marriage of Betsy Grover in Chautauqua county. My father, Orrin Leigh Grover, was born in Ripley, New York. I suspect they may be related. (One of my sisters was named Elizabeth as her middle name, and called "Betsy" for many years.) Do you have more information on Betsy Grover's family?
Thank you!

THE EARLY YEARS...
Luke Grover was born in Fitzwilliam, Cheshire County, NH on
10/25/1797, the son of Nathaniel Grover Jr. (06/26/1776-01/06/1837)
and Susan (Suzanne) Woodbury (abt.1780-05/30/1858) who were
married on 12/15/1796 in Royalston, MA. Note: father “Seth
Grover...Born NH, migrated to VT” (per Grover Family Bible)
Fitzwilliam, Cheshire County, NH was founded by Masonian
Proprietors in 1752. The surface of the town is broken and uneven.
It’s lakelets, streams, hills and valleys blending with exquisite
harmony in a landscape whose beauty is famous.
The Grover family migrated to Sudbury, Rutland County VT (per
Grover Family bible) abt. 1806, and purchased land on 09/22/1810
(Deed 1:79), which was founded in 1763 and a distance of abt. 110
miles from Fitzwilliam, NH. Rutland County is bordered to the
West by Lake Champlain and the State of NY.
Siblings of Luke Grover were Lucy (07/09/1799-06/25/1861); and
Laura (05/19/1801-09/28/1805), born in Fitzwilliam, NH. In

(11/17/1815-08/19/1907); Laura ( ? - ? ); Sophia (abt 1820-
10/03/1845); and Mary S. (Abt 1821-03/30/1871) born in Sudbury,
Rutland County, VT.
Luke Grover married Isabel Foster (10/23/1789-1881) in Sudbury,
Rutland County, VT on 12/03/1818. Isabel Foster was born in
Oakham, Worchester, MA and her parents were Alpheus Foster
(1764-1813) and Bathsheba Reed. Luke Grover and Isabel Foster
migrated from Sudbury, Rutland County, VT to Barre, Genesee
County (Orleans County after 01/01/1826) between 1818 & 1820.This is a distance of abt. 328 miles.

The Town of Barre, NY was created and named after Barre, MA
on 03/06/1818. At this time of settlement, the main road for travel
was the Oak Orchard Road, which ran along a ridge and was
always dry and suitable for travel when the streams that crossed it
could be forded. However, upon leaving the Ridge, either N or S,
the roads were muddy with long tracts of low land. The settlers had
to wallow through the mud, as best they could, until they were able
to build their roads. Land was being given by the Holland Land
Company for a “Congressional Society”, as an inducement to the
first religious society to be formed in each town. Luke Grover
arrived in Barre, Genesee/Orleans County, NY during it’s infancy,
with the first tavern (1815), first dry goods and grocery store (1817),
first physician (1819), first sawmill (1816), first gristmill (1819) and

be an agricultural community with a population of 1,178 in 2007.

************
Author’s notations - It is significant to note that documents from this period
were often hand written and subject to interpretation. This is demonstrated
by the Surname of “Groover” Census Record and the gravestone as “Groves”
This also holds true for given names, with Orin A Grover’s 1 enlistment st
papers show a spelling of “Orin”, his 2 enlistment papers show a spelling of nd
“Oran”, but his own handwritten Last Will & Testament clearly shows a
spelling of “Orrin”.

Married 30 Years (Ripley, NY newspaper) - “Mr. And Mrs.
George Grover were given a happy surprise Saturday evening on the
occasion of their thirtieth wedding anniversary, the affair having
been arranged by their children and took place at the home of their
son and daughter-in-law, Mr. And Mrs. Lawrence Grover on the
Lake Rd. About 40 of the friends and neighbors of the couple
gathered...Visiting and dancing occupied the time until near
midnight, when a buffet luncheon was served.”
George Foster Grover, although taking other employment was
always a farmer. He had a farm for 20+ years on Main Rd. (Rt. 20)
in Ripley, NY (location still to be identified). He also at one point
had a farm on Lake Rd. (Rt. 5) in Ripley, NY. The original
farmhouse still exists, but has been added to, making a modern
dwelling. The property is located between Lake Rd. (Rt. 5) and
Lake Erie on Indian Creek (9764 E Lake Rd. Ripley, NY 14775).
The farm site is historically prominent, as the NYS Museum
conducted “Excavations in an Erie Indian Village and Burial Site at Ripley, Chautauqua Co. N.Y.” at that exact location in 1907.
