Those researching descendants of William Grafton (born 1690-98 and died about 1767 in Baltimore County, Maryland) might find information they are seeking in a book recently published, titled "Streett Cousins." The book has a chapter on the Grafton family which settled in Baltimore County, Maryland. They are descendants of William and Margaret Grafton; their children included William Jr. (m. Phoebe Howell and Sarah Billingsley), Christiana (m. Maurice Baker), Ann (m. Daniel Preston), and Mary (m. Thomas Smithson).
"Streett Cousins" is a book about families with marriage connections to descendants of Thomas Streett of Baltimore and Harford Counties, Maryland. The families included in the book are Amos, Day, Denbow, Glenn, Gorsuch, Grafton, McComas, Merryman, Preston, Rutledge, Scott, Slade, Smithson, St.Clair, Watkins and Webb.
