My name is Anson Roy Grover and I am the grandson of Carrie Spinney Grover. My Grandmother was born in Black River, Nova Scotia in 1879 to George Craft Spinney and Mary Long Spinney. She came to the U.S. with her family at the age of 12 and settled in Bethel, Maine where she attended Gould Academy. After her marraige to Almon Roy Grover they moved to West Gorham, Maine where she lived on a small farm for most of her life. She died in 1959 while living at my parents home in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. She is buried with her husband in Gorham, Maine. She was a most talented and loving person who had a great desire to keep alive the folk songs she had learned from childhood and throughout the years, hence her book "A Heritage of Songs". Thank you for your interest in these songs and in her.
