I am interested in your William Degroff and two brothers; James Samuel and Rueben,dates and places of birth/marriage/death.

Our William Degrofft had 12 children; seven sons, the fifth son was Samuel, born Feb 24, 1834 in Richland Co.,Ohio, married Elizabeth Sowers, May 31, 1856 in Williams Co.,Ohio, they had at least seven children. Samuel Degroff enlisted in the Army of the Cumberland Aug 25, 1861, and he mustered out in 1864.

It would appear that we are referring to two different William Degroffs! Our William, by the way, signed his name in military affidavit for bounty lands thus: "Wm Degrofft".
