Glad I could help. I don't know much about the collateral lines that married into the Sroufe's, sorry. Jan might know, but last I heard, she was in Arizona, not South Dakota and I lost touch. Maybe she'll find this forum.

Lots of good history in this bunch. You can probably join DAR on Sebastian Sroufe. His wife, Agnes Owens, was thought to be the daughter of trader John Owen, of Fort Pitt. Owen's wife was said to be Indian, the daughter of Chief Tanacharisson or "Half King", a contemporary of George Washington.

Sebastian is thought to be the son of Johann Adam Sroufe who emigrated to the US in 1734.

Good luck with the rest of your searches!
