While on vacation in South Carolina, I had the pleasure of touring the USS Yorktown. One of the displays listed the Civil War Medal of Honor Recipentants and to my delight listed a Grimshaw.Needless to say being a Grimshaw decendant, I stopped and inquired about this Gentleman.
Samuell Grimshaw, born March 2nd, Smithfield, Ohio, fathers name Joseph Grimshaw born 1812 Leeds, England, Mother, Ann Blackburn born Westmoreland Co. Pa.
