Do you want to be a little more confused?
I have also found the variations of DeGraff, DeGraft and DeGroft in my search. Resently I came across something at our state library that said that a Jean LeCount came to America in 1674 and changed his name to DeGraff. (Another researchers says that he was the 6th great grandson of Louis IX, King of France. I haven't linked with that family yet so I haven't researched it.) Any way, Jean's went on to New York and then Pennsylvania. I have several contacts from that branch, but have yet to find the link. We are in neighboring counties in the same time frame, but are missing that one link. One of the people that I am in contact with, who is linked with the LeCount branch, is now carring the DeGroft name. I am unsure of exactly when and why it has been changed, but I'm sure we'll find that we all link at some point.
I love speaking with other DeGroft searchers so please feel free to contact me via e-mail. Maybe I can help you link with a cousin.
Good Luck!
Kim Whitney
