He is surely the Robert Graf of Pawlet, Rupert, Vt and of Granville, NY (they border eachother practically at his doorstep). Correctly shown in some of the Census below are his wife Georgianna Graf (formerly Leach), his sister Genevieve Graf, his son Robert E. and others. He certainly came from Switzerland. His life here in the states is clear. His parents back in the old country are still the missing to our family overseas. His descendants remember that his son Robert E. Graf used to travel back to Switzerland to visit with family, but he used to go by himself or with his great aunt Genevieve who is no longer with us either. Seems we lost record of who he was visiting or where exactly he went. I believe that's where Robert E. Graf's daughter has reccollections of Appenzell. Looking it up I see Appenzell is both a "town" and a "county" of sorts. I appreciate all the help.
