Here is one of three nice little cards that came my way recently. The brothers were Charles Wesley, Joel Wellington, and William Delmar Griswold, all three listed as jewelers in the 1880 census at Avoca. The census for Hornellsville list their brother, George Washington as a grocery. I especially like the line "And a wagon constantly on the road." The two towns, in upstate Steuben County, are about 13 miles apart. Shame the boys didn't marry into my project. . .

John D Griswold the father of the brothers referenced in this posting is listed in the U S Federal Census for Avoca, New York as a dentist in 1850 and 60.

His son John E at 21 years of age is listed as a silversmith in the 1860 U S Federal Census for Avoca, New York, and there is a 31 year old John Griswold who is listed as a dentist in the 1870 U S Federal Census for Avoca, New York.

Family members indicate that the younger John passed away in Avoca in 1874.
