James B and Mary (Coax) Hagerty Grimshaw

James Was a Descendant of the Yorkshire Grimshaw Line

Kevin Howley has identified the parents of James B Grimshaw as Joseph and Anne (Blackburn) Grimshaw, which means that James is descended from the Edward and Dorothy (Raner) Grimshaw line. A webpage has been previously prepared for James Grimshaw’s grandparents, Samuel and Mary (Shackleton) Grimshaw (click here). The tie-in of James to his ancestors is indicated below on this webpage.

James’ older brother, Samuel, received the medal of honor for bravery in the U.S. Civil War, as described in a companion webpage.

Thanks go to Kevin Howley for providing the information to tie this family line back to the Edward and Dorothy (Raner) Grimshaw family line. Thanks also to two persons posting on Ancestry.com — Julia and unknown Watson — for providing essential additional detail on this family line. Julie also kindly provided the photo of Mary (Coax) Grimshaw’s father, shown on this webpage.

Information from GenForum and Ancestry.com Postings

Several postings were made in 2001 and 2002 on Genforum and Ancestry.com that provided initial information on James B and Mary (Coax) Grimshaw. These postings are included on the “Grimshaw Indications” Webpage, a companion webpage on this website, and are shown below.

James B and Mary (Coax) Grimshaw

Julie Smith posted the following message on the Grimshaw Family Genealogy Forum in December 2001:

I am trying to find info on Grimshaw that married Mary Coax b. abt 1850 in Reynoldsville PA. They had two sons – Harry and Pershing. I believe they lived in NJ

Later, in August 2003 Julie posted the following:

I found the it was James B. Grimshaw married to Mary Coax. Their son was Pershing or Percy Grimshaw. She also had a daughter Millie Hagerty. Percy married Luella Harvey from Ohio. they had children which include: Vera, Marguerite or Mary, Forrest and Donald. The children were in the Soldier and Sailors orphanage in 1930. Percy remarried Stella and lived in Dayton Ohio in 1930. I would like to find the descendants.

Then in October 2003, Diane Syron posted the following message:

Dear Julie,

I am writing in behalf of my mother. She is trying to research my half brothers family history for them. She was married to Robert Taylor Grimshaw, born November 29, 1925. they had two children, Steven Taylor Grimshaw and Richard Blaine Grimshaw. My mother was in the OS & SO Home in Xenia, Ohio. They dated when they were teenagers but lost contact after Robert went into the service. My mother then met and married my father, Robert Lewis Dutcher.

My mother’s brother, Olin was older than her and he was friends with Donald Harvey Grimshaw, one of Robert’s brothers. Robert also married and I believe his wife was murdered in Ohio. Sometime after my mother and father divorced she met Robert again in Columbus, Ohio where he was stationed. They eventually married and moved to California. They later divorced. He lives in California with his third wife. I believe he retired from the Navy. She also thought Robert’s father’s name was Percy or something similar to it. She also thought there was mention of them living in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She now resides in Hebron, Ohio.

She said there were 7 children in the home from that family and that Vera and Mary were older sisters of Robert and Donald. She is going to mail me the information she has been able to attain so far. It is not a lot but I found information through Ancestry.com that shows information from the 1880 Census that shows J.B. Grimshaw born in 1846 in Ohio, with an occupation of Druggist. His father’s birthplace was England and mother’s birthplace was PA. His wife’s name was Mary. She was born in 1851 in PA. Both of her parents were born in PA. The house hold contained a Mille Hagerty, stepdaughter to J.B. Grimshaw, she was 6. It states both of her parents were born in PA. Pershing Grimshaw, 2 born in PA. and a sister-in-law to J.B. Grimshaw, Jemima Coax, 19 born in PA. This was from the census from Driftwood, Cameron, PA. Hope this helps. If you find anything about the Grimshaw’s we would love to hear it. Likewise any info. we discover we would be glad to share.

God Bless,

Diane Syron

On January 2001, Paul Winston Grimshaw posted the following message on the Grimshaw Family Genealogy Forum:

Where to start? My father is Donald Harvey Grimshaw. He is one of 7 children that were placed in the OS&SO Home (Orphan Sailor And Soldiers Orphan Home in Xenia, Ohio. This was around 1928. His father was Percy Grimshaw. He was married to Louella Harvey. Have been told that Louella is a cousin(s) to Eli Harvey. Trying to find a place to start to trace.

Julie Smith, in July 2003, responded to Paul with the following:

I believe Percy Grimshaw was the son of Mary Coax Grimshaw. I found he had two children to Luella, vera and Mary. That was all I had. 7? What happened to Luella and Percy? Mary Coax was sister to my g grandfather.

The following is a chain of entries on Ancestry.com regarding this line of Grimshaws.

Gary Smith, 2001

I am trying to find info on Grimshaw that married Mary Coax b. abt 1850 in Reynoldsville, PA. They had two sons – Harry and Pershing. I believe they lived in NJ.

Gillian Parnell England, May 2002

A Harry Grimshaw married Florence Moore – my g. uncle’s daughter. They lived in Paterson,, N. Jersey. Florence was born there, but her parents moved from Coventry in England. not sure of exact date, but they are listed in Paterson in 1891. Harry has a living nephew named Harry Huber, he still lives in the area. Any connection, please reply.

Julie Smith, May 2002

Can you find out if Harry had a brother named Pershing? The years match. With such an unusual name we surely could tie if you find that.

Gillian Parnell, May 2002

I don’t know if he did, but his nephew is still around. I will write to him as soon as I can. As he married my g.g. Aunt Florence Moore-can you be of any help to me in that direction. Florence’s father ran a jewelry shop at 386 Main and lived 143,Hamilton Ave Paterson. Harry Grimshaw ran the shop until he became ill with cancer after my g. uncle retired. Perhaps we can help each other. Thanks

Hi again. Just checked some notes and really need to know where your side of this fits with mine. It’s possible Harry G had a sister. If that’s so, the line leads back to the parents being English. If so there are still living relatives this side of the ocean I could check out. The Moores are from England also, although Florence was born in America. Not sure about her 2 brothers as I don’t know exactly what year my g. uncle emigrated. Contact me with some detailed information about your sides connection and I can perhaps solve the problem.

Preliminary Descendant Chart (now known to be erroneous)

Based on the above information, the following preliminary descendant chart was previously constructed, but has since been shown to be erroneous. The Percy Grimshaw who married Luella Harvey was apparently not the Pershing Grimshaw who descended from James B and Mary (Coax) Grimshaw. Percy Grimshaw and his ancestors and descendants are still being researched.

I noticed your listing on the site relative to Pershing Grimshaw and I wanted to provide this update. I’m pretty sure that the Percy Grimshaw you note is NOT the Pershing Grimshaw that belongs to my family. [I’m the Blackburn tree guy.] Percy lists his parents having been born in PA and OH, respectively. Pershing’s were born in OH and PA, matching the above.

Additional Postings on Ancestry.com, December 2007

Re: Grimshaw and Mary Coax-PA


Posted: 22 Dec 2007 12:06PM

Classification: Query

Surnames: Grimshaw / Coax / Moynihan / Crowley

Julie, go to second paragraph, your Grimshaw is the brother of my Grimshaw.

John Grimshaw, of Driftwood, Cameron Co., PA married 23 Sep 1880 in Driftwood to Catherine W. Moynihan, she was born 12 Dec 1861 in Warren Co., PA (her year of birth is in question), she died 4 Nov 1926 in Jamestown, Chautauqua Co., NY. I have very little info on John, according to 1880 Driftwood census prior to his marriage, he was born 1857 in OH, father born in England, mother born in PA, he was a bartender at a local Driftwood Hotel. My dads younger brother described John as a “no-account & a bootlegger”. I have no record of whatever happened to John, family members either didnt know or wouldnt talk about it.

Apparently John had an older brother also living in Driftwood, the 1880 census lists him as J. B. Grimshaw, born 1846 in OH, occupation Druggist, father born in England, mother born in PA; wife: Mary, born 1851 in PA, both parents born PA. Also residing in J.B. Grimshaws household were step-daughter, Millie Hagerity, born 1874 – PA, bpb PA; son, Pushing Grimshaw, born 1878 – PA, fb OH, mb PA; and sister-in-law, Jencinna Coax, born 1861 – PA, bpb PA.

John & Catherine had two children as near as I can tell, Joseph J. Grimshaw, born 3 Jul 1881 in Driftwood, died 9 Jun 1936 in Jamestown and Jennette Grimshaw, born Jun 1883, baptized 28 Jul 1883 in Driftwood, she appears in the 1900 census in Jamestown when age 17, thats the last record I have of her.

The 1900 Jamestown census lists only Catherine “Kate” (Moynihan) Grimshaw, her two children, and her two brothers, John Francis Moynihan & Humphrey Moynihan, Jr.

Joseph Grimshaw is buried alone in the Elk Section of Lakeview Cemetery in Jamestown, his mother, Kate, is buried alone in the Catholic Section of Lakeview. Joseph married Nellie, I have just tidbits of information about her. In my grandmothers papers I found a penny post card addressed to Mrs. Joseph Grimshaw, Box 334, Falconer, NY, it contained no message, no postmark, or name of sender. Following WW2 while my uncle was in the Jamestown Police Department, he and Herbert J. Grimshaw, Joseph & Nellies son, took Nellie to the County Farms insane asylum in Dewittville.

Herbert J. Grimshaw was my second cousin, but grew up in my dads generation. Herbs grandmother, Kate was the eldest sibling and my grandmother, Margaret Mary (Moynihan) Watson was the next to last youngest sibling. This “generation slippage” plus that I grew up in Westchester Co., NY made for a not too close relationship. I think Herb was married more than once, one wife was Mary Martyn, born 17 Feb 1920, died Mar 1981, Social Security residence, Jamestown. Mary is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Jamestown, next to her parents, John F. (1895-1972) & Mabel D. (1899-1953) Martyn. Social Security data base lists a Herbert Grimshaw (22 Aug 1909 – Aug 1983), SS res, Jacksonville, FL This was Herbs last address found in my parents address book.

One other mystery tidbit, a note on my Grimshaw worksheet describing a photo of a Mrs. Gladys Grimshaw and her daughter Pat, describing a August 2nd (no year given) marriage to a Jim Wiley ?

I do have a 5 x 7 inch photo of five people taken about 1912 of baby Herb Grimshaw, Mrs. Nellie Grimshaw, I assume Nellies mother, Kate (Moynihan) Grimshaw & Kates mother (my great-grandmother) Margaret (Crowley) Moynihan, probably taken in Jamestown..

I would appreciate any additional information and welcome any detailed inquiries.
