Griffin Family Genealogy II

This is an update to the post, Griffin Family Genealogy I, published on May 2, 2013. When I figure out how to link to the first post, I will do so here.

This is information we were able to gather from visiting the Robeson County and Halifax County, North Carolina areas during the summer of 2013.

We discovered a roster of Union County Revolutionary Soldiers as taken from a monument on the courthouse grounds of Monroe, North Carolina that lists both Thomas Griffin and his father, Richard Griffin. We hope to visit this monument personally, in the future. 2015 is definitely looking like a strong possibility.

We also found an Anson County, North Carolina Abstract of Wills, 1750-1880 which lists both Thomas Griffin, and his brother, David. Lists the children still alive and around at the time of their father’s death.

  1. I’m a Griffin, but not the same line, as far as I can tell. The revolutionary Richard Griffin in my paternal line was born in Wales and settled in South Carolina (to the best of my knowledge–I haven’t spent much time researching these folks just yet).
