My mother is a Griffin -- here are some particulars:
We have William Harris Griffin (b. approx. 1840) and William Marion Griffin, who was a Methodist preacher.I'm sorry that I don't have any more information on Wm. Marion's siblings -- they would have been in the right age group to have made the big move.
My mother has kinfolk in Opp, AL and she was born in Coffee Co., AL.Her Daddy was Jasper Lorance Griffin and her mother was Mary Magdalene Huggins Griffin, but they were both born in Chesterfield Co., SC (Cheraw).
