Looking for Father of Mary E. (Grinn) Stewart and the maiden name of of her mother, Unis Grinn.

+2 votes
I found an 1880 Census in Springport, Cayuga County, New York for the household of Archibald and Mary E. Stewart. With Unis Grinn listed as Archibald's Mother-in-Law. I would love any more information that could be provided.

Also. I suspect Unis may also be listed as Eunice in other records, and that Grinn may also possibly be a misspelling of the original surname. Both Mary E. and Unis are listed as being born in Massachusetts

Hopefully the following will be helpful to further your search...

Based upon the Husband's Findagrave information, i had located the following with the same/similar location of Death.



Regarding the "Grinn" Surname, I see that example of where it was based upon, but after looking into this a bit, I believe that the actual Surname is "Bryant".

I did locate the following information that reflects this too...



... I also believe that the Grinn Surname for Unis is either her Maiden name (less likely, but possible) or the Surname for a second+ Spouse after her marriage to Mary's father (for a number of of reasons).

There's also the possibility of Unis being Mary's Stepmother as I've seen a Step-Parent marked as a parent for dated documents as well.

I hope this was helpful in some way for you! :-)

This is some good evidence. And apparently, another profile exists for Mary Bryant on wikitree already with a different mother listed. So are you thinking the step-mother is who is listed? The other profile has her being being born about 1811 in ashfield, massachusetts.
