I am now convinced that the problem arises during installation or update of 
grub. update-grub yields this:

    # update-grub

    Generating grub configuration file ...

    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-66-generic

    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.13.0-66-generic

    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-92-generic

    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-92-generic

    Adding Windows

    Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.elf

    Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.bin

    Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1

    Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sdc1

    Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sdc2


sda1 and sdc1 have small HPFS/NTFS partitions. sdc1 is likely the small 
partition that Windows adds during installation, a "system required . . .", 
105 MB partition. (Win-7 is installed on sdc2.)

I guess I'll just live with these extra / needless entries in the grub boot 
menu at startup - I don't want to screw up a working, dual-boot system! I'm 
also surmising that the entries would reappear when a update and grub refresh 

Thanks to Hartmut and others who have offered suggestions.
