GRINNELL, PHILLIPS posted by Jean N. Amster on Saturday, March 28, 1998

 
I've been trying to learn the parentage of my father for many years now. He was adopted by William GRINNELL and his wife, Rachael A PHILLIPS of Revena in 1879, shortly after his birth. These records are still sealed and the Probate Judge has refused to open them for me, even after 120 years! I was hopeing that someone, somewhere had written in a diary about the adoption and will share it with me.I also was adopted but we always kept in touch with William P.Grinnell and about 30 years ago we reunited. My siblings and I are now great friends and are helping me with as much as possible. W.P.G. put some historical items in the Western Reserve that belonged to his father, a Civil Ward Diary was one interesting item.Thanks for all that you do on the Webb, it's great to live 2000 miles away and be able to share.
