  • Book Title: Life of George Dewey, Rear Admiral, U S N , and Dewey family history, p889 and 925. lists 3 wives and children.

Research Notes

There is a FAG listing for a Grotius Dewey that may be this one because of the Berkshire location:

Grotius Dewey was born in 1781 and died 29 Dec 1860 (aged 78–79). He was buried in the Mahaiwe Cemetery in Great Barrington, Berkshire County, Massachusetts.[1]

There is a marriage record for a Crotius and Eunice Litchfield Dewey [2] that, again because of the Berkshire location, probably refers to him but I'm not sure that the Eunice Litchfield referred to is the one profiled in Litchfield-269.

There is another marriage record for a Grotius Dewey and a Maria Fairchild. [3] They seem to have had a number of children.
