Wreck of the schooner Whittlesey 1832

Classification: Query
I am trying to identify a Thrall family from Gramby CT who perished in the shipwreck of the schooner Elisha Whittlesley in 1832 on Lake Erie. An eye-witness account speaks of "the loss of friend Thrall and family from Gramby, CT and Henry A Holcomb's wife and child." Henry Holcomb's wife Fidelia and little son Samuel were two of the victims. Henry and his father Alexander barely managed to survive. Alexander's wife was Tryphena Thrall. I can only presume the Thralls who perished were her family, but I cannot find her parents or siblings. Any help much appreciated.
