Brett, do we know what ship Robert came on?The "Griffin"?Wasn't that the name of one of the immigrant ships? If so, could "Griffin says" be referring to the ship's list(I doubt it, but it was worth a shot)?
Thanks for responding. Your post has given me more than I had, which was nothing. I guess there isn't much out there on Robert Spinks, as I have found next to nothing on him, save the fact that he was m. to Alice and was the father of children.
