I know that there is a discussion already on the forum about this Robert Griffing, but I hope this post will bring new hits and new sharing of information. Linda Sykes shared this with me originally. She is a descendant of Susannah Griffing.I descend from Harriet M. Griffing.
The fact that our Robert has a son Zadock, and a grandson Jasper, leads me to believe that he is part of the Jersey settlers in Mississippi.
