The Rural Grove membership list was masterfully formatted with Excel by Carol Gros Waite! Carol researches in tandem with Rita Gros Parish, who prepared the Town of Root Diefendorf cemeteries and other historical articles. Both Carol and Rita are descendants of Captain Lawrence and Maria Failing Gros. Their line is connected to the Moyer, Smith, Fort, Fox, Bronner, Fetterly, Kinter, Snyder, Dingman, Countryman, Dockstader, Nellis, Backus, Reese, Warner, Harwick, Loucks, Abeel, Schuyler, Snell, Dygert, Knouts, Gray, Bellinger, Hall, Walter and Kast families. Carol modestly says we should defer to Rita as being the expert but both Carol and Rita would love to hear from others researching their lines.



Does anyone know what "NR & Neg" mean or what particular incidents caused church members to be expelled in groups? If so, please contact the site coordinator so that we can add it to the page. For further information about persons on the lists all inquiries should be directed to the historians of the Montgomery Dept. of History and Archives.
