I am trying to verify if my great-grandfather, John Newberry GRIFFIN and his wife, Henrietta Stanton GRIFFIN, moved to Moultrie, GA around
The family came from Cheraw, Chesterfield County, SC. John Newberry and Henrietta GRIFFIN were known to have lived in south Alabama as well as southwest Florida. John Newberry and his sons worked with turpentine distilling and sawmill work, moved about every three years when the work was done.
John and Henrietta's son (my grandfather) was Jasper Lorance "Jap" GRIFFIN who married Mary Magdalene "Mae" HUGGINS of Coffee County, AL. Her family was also from the Chesterfield County area originally and moved to similar areas as this GRIFFIN family.
Jap's younger brother was Harris Stanton GRIFFIN who lived in around Moultrie at different times. He and his wife, Eunice JOHNSON, lived out near Airport Road. He passed away in the 1970's.
We were not aware that the family had moved to Colquitt County quite so early until a collateral GRIFFIN researcher sent us information about his grandmother, Sallie GRIFFIN. He has always heard that John Newberry GRIFFIN and family moved to COLQUITT COUNTY and Moultrie earlier than we expected.
Does anyone have access to a 1900 census for the area? What books would you recommend for a person researching Moultrie for the years 1890-1930?
Thanks in advance,
