UPTHEGROVE surname in Niagara in late 1700s

UPTHEGROVE surname in Niagara in late 1700s

Posted: 9 Jul 2008 4:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Upthegrove, Obram, Kelley
Nancy Ann UPTHEGROVE born in Ontario circa 1805 married (1837) Dennis KELLEY (or O'Kelley) also born in Ontario circa 1805. According to RootsWeb's WorldConnect the couple had five children, at least one of whom, their daughter Amanda, is known to have been born in Ontario (in Wainfleet Township in 1845). Nancy and Dennis at some point moved their family to Wisconsin where Dennis died in 1850 and Nancy remarried.

Looking especially for information on the parents of Nancy and Dennis. I have found a John UPTHEGROVE and Ann OBRAM UPTHEGROVE living in the Niagara area in the late 1700s. They are said to have come over the border from the USA during or immediately after the Revolution. Ann is thought to have some blood relationship to Seneca Chief Cornplanter. From various online sources I found the names of three sons born in Niagara: Abram (born 1776) Peter (born 1779), and Benjamin (born 1785).

Trying to see if there is any tie-in for Nancy to this family...a daughter???

Any information would be most appreciated.

Thanks, 9 generationsmanynames. I was asked for help off the message board by someone. Don't usually accept searches going back so far due to my limited resources and lack of time but thought I could at least help by putting a query on a few of the surrounding boards. Still think that Nancy Upthegrove Kelley could be a daughter or granddaughter of John and Ann Upthegrove of Niagara but have yet been able to prove it.

Thanks again.
