From Reid Gryder (from Gryder WebPage)...I was passing through Denmark a few years back and stopped in a department store in Copenhagen. As I was walking through the store, I saw a big sign overhead with the word 'Gryder' on it. I asked a store clerk who spoke English what the word ment. She could not understand what I was asking until I took out my passport and showed her my name. Then she explained that 'Gryder' in Danish means kitchenware', in particular, pots and pans. Indeed the sign was over a department with all kinds of kitchenware. As I was leaving the department store, the clerk called out to me, 'Goodbye, Mr. Potts!'.
John (Jack) Gryder contacted Claus B�low Christensen in Denmark and received this info about the web page http://www.metronome.dk/film/leksikon/gryder.html. In Danish the word 'gryder' can be translated to the English word 'pots'. It's plural of the word 'en gryde', which means 'a pot'. And 'the pot' is in Danish: 'gryden'. So the word gryder can in a Danish sentence look like this: 'Jeg har mange flotte gryder' - which means: 'I have many fine pots' The text you have found is a description of what kind of pots were used for cooking in the Danish middle age.
Valentine Gryder Information: I am Lisa Jones Drutz. My great, great grandmother Flora Wilder was the dgtr. of Henderson Wilder and Lydia Ann Gryder. Lydia was dgtr. of Val Gryder. Our family notes have referred to Val Gryder, and his trek from the Netherlands, settling in Ky and marrying a Scotch girl named 'Mary'. Just located your Gryder genealogy site the other day. Had no luck with the name and some occasional genealogy searches till then. Family notes say Val fought in Civil War for Union, and was in a Confederate prison. Lydia and Val moved to Indiana when Lydia was 12. Mary, the wife, and dgtr. Emily, died when Lydia was very young. Supposedly Lydia was cared for by 'Old Liza' after that happened. That's about all the family knows about Val Gryder. None of this has been substantiated by records as of yet, just notes from family bible. Thanks for any help you can give.
