Biography: Died Young. [1]

DAVID GRISCOM (est.1690-by1694). He is shown on the family tree; he died sometime before his father.[2]

Research Notes

There was a couple named David and Rachel Griscom of the Quaker faith who asked to be admitted to the Frankford Monthly Meeting in Pennsylvania. This couple had four minor children, one of whom was named David in the record. [3] The names of the four children were: " ...Mary B, Ann, Lydia Stewart, and Rachel from Haddonfield Meeting..." There is no David listed among this family - maybe because he had died ? But the time period is all wrong. The only thing about this record is the presence of a Griscom family in Pennsylvania about 150 years later. Fetterly-28 04:40, 8 April 2022 (UTC)
