I have a Lydia Huntington married to William Groat. Her father was Simon Huntington b. ca 1740 (maybe wrong) married to Ann Fuller or Mary Gray., Simon's father was Simon (1710-1764) married to Amy Standish. That Simon's father was Thomas Huntington (1664 -1732) married to Elizabeth Backus (1670 - 1728). Some of the dates coincide and some don't. But the names of the children are so similar. Do you know anything about my Lydia Huntington Groat? We have no firm birth or death information. Here is an obit that helped us: Christian messenger, Feb.1873-Dec. 1873, Vol.9.
