Hi Terry, Richard Grigg is my Great Grandfather. Recently I have been delving into his ancestry via the internet & into his descendants at the SA State Library. I thought you may be interested in what I have found so far. The Cornwall records all took place in Wendron unless otherwise noted and the dates are birth/christening or death/burial dates. The list commences with his grandparents:

Richard died in Adelaide 22Aug1920 and Elizabeth died in Adelaide 28Oct1931, both are buried at West Terrace Cemetery in family gravesite along with daughter Mary and husband John Henry Warren.
Josiah Grigg and Emma Brewster (above).... my grandparents. (butcher,businessman and Millicent councillor for 21 years) Children: Evelyn Irene Grigg b.14Feb1902 Millicent SA d. 9Feb1988 Adelaide SA m. 1929Benjamin Rudolph Schwarz b.22Mar1904 Swan Reach SA d. 3Aug1981 Adelaide SA Ivan Josiah Grigg b.28May1905 Millicent SA d. 3Nov1998 Adelaide SA m.22Jul1930 Hilda Lydia Esther Dallwitz b.3Jul1909 Kapunda SA d. date? m. 4Jul1942 Stella Fullerton,Glenelg SA b.15Oct1914 Eurelia SA d. 1Sep1994 Adelaide SA (F.Edmund Greig Fullerton b.1864 Sandergrove SA d.13Oct1951 Kadina SA) (M.Minna Isabella Minnie Frankel b.23Jan1876 Gawler SA d.15Jul1948 Kadina SA) (GF.August Ferdinand Frankel GM.Margaret Grimmond) Reginald Richard William b.3Feb1909 Millicent SA (Dick)d.22Apr1969 Millicent SA m.25Feb1930 Doris Elizabeth Walker b.20Feb1909 Millicent d.25Jun1996 Millicent (F.William Henry Walker b.23Sep1881 Stepney SA d.18Mar1939 Millicent)
Ivan and Stella Grigg are my parents and have another daughter Adrienne, Dick and Doris Grigg have one daughter Jennifer, and Evelyn and Ben Schwarz have no children. Although my sister has one son and two daughters, I have two daughters and Jennifer has one son, there is of course no grandsons of Josiah to carry on the Grigg name.
I would be interested if you, or any other reseacher reading this, can confirm the Cornish records I have found or can forward any additional information.
