In Reply to: Re: GREENBERRY GRIFFIN 1773-1847 by Marilyn Roth of 261

Many thanks for your message and info.

My Greenberry was 72 years old when he died in 1847 in Daviess Co Ky, he married in Nelson Co Ky in 1805 to Nancy Stone. They had 8 children. So he was born in 1774 or 1775 if all of this is correct as we believe it is.

My grandfather told me he was from Maryland and he thought he was born there as was his father and grandpappy, Greenberry that is. We know he taught school, was an administrator for several wills and other legal proceedings here in Ky, so he must have had a fair education for that day.

Again many thanks for your time and info, I will read it very carefully. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you that there was a Greenberry Griffith In Daviess Co Ky the same time as my Greenberry was but they were unrelated or so I was told.
Grandfather said the name had always been Griffin for as far back as he was told. He said he was 5 when his Grandfather James died, and he didn't remember much about him, except he was tall, he did however remember James' brothers and sisters. James was one of Greenberry's sons.

Enough to worry you now. I appreciate any and all help. I do so want to find Greenberry's father and mother as I believe that will open up a large body of material from someone.

Rodney Griffin Greenberry's ggg grandson
