Gruissy & Wolf

My great grandparents were Thomas K. & N. Regina (Gruissy) Mark. So the Mark & Gruissy families are linked in my family lines. Scroll down for information on the Gruissy family. The Wolf cousins also connect here because Augustus Ceaser Gruissy married Esther Barbara Wolf. The Gruissy family is difficult to research because the name is spelled differently in every record. It can be seen as: Grusey, Creesy, Greelys, Gruissy, Gruissi, Greasys, Creasy. There are few family members & hard to find. Find information on the Wolf line after the Gruissy data. The Wolf family is plentiful, especially in Pennsylvania. The name can be seen as Wolf, Wolff, Woolf or Wolfe.
