  of 193

I am looking for the parentage and family of William Degroff/Degrofft, b.Sept.03,1796 in Adams Co., PA. He volunteered in War of 1812 in Cayuga Co., NY. He is not the Wm, son of Wm Swart DeGroff, dates are wrong. But he could be a cousin.
Wm Degroff/Degrofft and Margaret Myers were married Feb.11, 1821 in Gettysburg, PA area, by Rev. Lebrecht L. Hinsch, Lutheran and Reformed minister.
They moved to Stark Co.,OH, later to Richland Co.,OH and finally settled in Williams Co.,OH. They had 12 children, William died May 29, 1872, Margaret,(dau of Henry Myers,Adms Co.,PA) d. Nov.02, 1879, both buried in Wms. Co., OH.
Any help with this important link to Jean le Conte will be appreciated. Thank you.
