This is the following information I have on the Griffith-Byrd case. John (Jackie) Griffith married Annie Byrd daughter of Yancey county pioneer George William Byrd, Sr of Yancey County. Annie died ca. 1825, and John is appointed guardian of their children: Elanan, Serena, Sultana (Sultenece), and Posey. See court minutes on Feb., 1838, where they are mentioned as minor heirs of George Byrd, deceased, their grandfather. This set up the NC supreme court case.

I received this information from a hand-out given at the Byrd reunion held at Pinebridge Inn in summer of 2000.

If you know of anything different let me know.

Let me know by sending information to my e-mail address if you will.
