John and Philip Grimshaw Were Brothers of William Grimshaw of Ironton, Ohio

 

William C. Grimshaw was born in Great Britain (Isle of Man) and apparently married Phoebe Cain, who was born in Greenup, Kentucky, after immigrating to the U.S. William and Phoebe, who are the subject of a companion webpage, arrived in Lawrence Co., Ohio in about 1847. They apparently had five children - Jennie, William Henry, Ann G. Noble B., and John E. Grimshaw. William Henry, Nobel and John subsequently moved to Illinois. William and Phoebe are apparently buried in Woodland Cemetery, Upper Township, Lawrence Co.

 

Naturalization Record of Philip Grimshaw

From companion webpage...

  1. Phillip Grimsha, 1831, New York

      Myers, Mrs. Lester F., 1968

The record for Phillip is quite sparse (Myers, 1968, p. 21):

      GRIMSHA, Phillip

      128

      I -- N

      21

Phillip was apparently a New York resident who was also an immigrant, as indicated by the fact that he was recorded in the "IóN" (Immigration Naturalization) pages that were indexed by the reference. Additional research would be required to obtain more detail on his immigration to the U.S. A dual page-numbering system (indicated by the numbers 128 and 21) is used in the index. The entry in the original reference is as follows:

GRIMSHA. Phillip, a native of the Isle of Man, Great Britain, declared his intention of becoming a citizen on June 10, 1831 in Court of Common Pleas, at Oswego, N.Y. He was a resident of Scriba. He took the Oath of Allegiance in Cayuga Co., Oct. 27, 1841. Witnesses, G.W. Foster and Ams Underwood declared that he had complied with the 5 year and 1 year residence requirements.

 

 

Candidate Family of Origin for John, Philip and William Grimshaw in The Isle of Man

It appears that William was the youngest child of Thomas and Catherine (Cowley) Grimshaw, who raised a large family on The Isle of Man. William would have been born about the time (1806) indicated for the christening in the descendant chart below, from the LDS Family Search website:

Thomas Grimshaw (ca. 1761, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England) & Catherine Cowley Married 4 Feb 1786.

|-----Margaret Grimshaw (ch. 13 Jan 1787, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----Catherine Grimshaw (ch. 8 Feb 1788, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----John Grimshaw (ch. 28 May 1791, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England - 18 Jun 1797)

|-----Mary Grimshaw (ch. 14 Jul 1793, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----Thomas Grimshaw (ch. 17 Jan 1796, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----Anne Grimshaw (ch. 13 May 1798, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----Phillip Grimshaw (ch. 2 Oct 1803, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

|-----William Grimshaw (ch. 27 Jul 1806, Ballaugh, Isle of Man, England -?)

Cindy O'Brian has found an 1850 U.S. Census record of William's older brother, John, age 49, living in Bushwick, Kings Co, New York with his wife, Jane (age 51) and two children, John and a sibling (Samantha or Catharine), ages 19 and 16, respectively. This census record is shown on a companion webpage as follows:

New York, John and Jane Grimshaw

John and Jane Grimshaw were born on The Isle of Man and were living in Kings County, New York. He was 48 and she was 51; their children, John and Samantha, were 19 and 16 years old. John was born on The Isle of Man, and Samantha was born in New York. John was a toll gatherer. William Hurst (?), a laborer, was living with this Grimshaw family. [Author's note: It appears that the daughter's name, shown as Samantha in the 1850 census index, is more likely to be Catharine.]
