Hi, I believe William Pope's wife was Elizabeth Spears (b abt 1833). She was the dau of John Spears and Malinda Griffin (b abt 1814 GA).Malinda was the dau of John Griffin Jr (b abt 1793 Burke Co GA). John Jr's father was a brother to William Griffin who married my 4th gr-gdm Mary Stewart.
They split up tho and William Griffin (b abt 1776 GA) was living in William Pope's hh 1850 Calhoun Co FL. The elder Spears/Griffins were in Burke Co GA 1820.
I have further info re Griffins if your interested, just let me know.
