George Grivel/Gribel (7-oct-1825 - 7-nov-1898) starts the Gribel line in the U.S., but he has on occasion
also written his name as Grivel. He came from France, and the
thought is that he changed the v to a b in his name
as he entered the United States. This is also why the Gribel family
is included here.
Note: anyone with information about the Gribel family is
encouraged to contact Karen
Sunderman, who is investigating this family.
