A Sullivan County, Indiana Griffith descendant's reunion is planned for September 30th, 2006 at the Sullivan City Park starting at 9:00AM. We are aware of 3 distinct Griffith lines that were in Sullivan County in the latter half of the 1800s. We've found many descendants and would like to find more to meet at this reunion to share and compare historical notes, photos, etc. William C. Griffith 1797-1892 & Philip B. Griffith 1797-1853 both had large families there. We've never been able to determine if these two families connect, but are hoping to find more to submit DNA sampling in order to find those connections. There was another line, for whom we know of no descendants as yet - that is Robert Griffith born 1794 at Ireland, who is also not known to connect to the other two. We would like to invite descendants from all 3 of these lines. We will have some sponsors at Sullivan there on Sept. 29 & October 1st also to meet and to be available as contacts. On Sept. 29th those interested can meet at the Sullivan County Public library. For further details, please write to me at: magrif@verizon.net - Thanks, Allan Griffith, Bloomington, IL
