Mary Herrick was the daughter of Zacharie Herrick, son of Henry Herrick (1604) and grandson of Sir William Herrick. Lenore Aubrey Grebles is the 11th great granddaughter of Sir William Herrick. Lenore's husband, Barent LeRoy Grebles, Jr. is the 11th great grandson of Sir William Herrick; Inasmuch as Zacharie Herrick was the brother of Henry Herrick (1640), who was the 9th great grandfather of Barent LeRoy Grebles, Jr. then Zacharie is the 9th great uncle to Barent.
