|Augustus Gruissy & Family, Ohio|
My website, Our Leaves & Branches, just helped me connect with a wonderful
person who is not related but who does have family information for me!
Melissa, in Ohio, sent me this comment:
“Hello, I found your site while helping a friend research an old bible that he had got at (I believe) an auction. It has some family names and dates from Phil and Mary Creasy. I wondered if anyone in the family would be interested in it.”Philip M. Creasy, 1867 OH – 1934 OH, is my half 2nd grand uncle. His father, Christian Gruissy, 1811 Switzerland – 1907 OH, is my 3rd great grandfather. Christian married twice, to Mary Grorisclauss, my 3rd great grandmother, and to Mary Wise, mother of Philip M. Creasy.
Note that two of Christian’s sons, Reuben & Philip changed their surnames from Gruissy to Creasy.
Of course, I contacted Melissa by email, letting her know that I am very interested in this Bible! We emailed back & forth and now the Bible is in the mail on its way to me! Thank you, Melissa!
Will it give information about Philip’s father? Will my branch show up in the records? I know Philip & Mary had one son, Harry Lewis Creasy who had one daughter, Norma. Will there be more descendants of Philip & Mary?
Maybe I should sleep next to my mailbox.
