Has anyone found any records of a Griggs family in Clinton Co., Ohio or adjacent counties? Property? In 1921 a grandson located the home of Benjamin and Elizabeth Griggs, about two miles west of Snow Hill Tavern west of New Vienna, Clinton Co., Ohio , which was occupied by a nice family named Cline. Are there any records before 1850? Need the source of Ryerson or Rheinerson, the maiden name of Elizabeth! Were any descendants of this Benjamin and Elizabeth named Benjamin? A Benjamin Griggs married Elizabeth Stewart 7 Mar 1805 1st Presbyterian Church, Middlesex Co., NJ.
