In Reply to: Martin Co. Griffins by Robert of 299

Hi Robert, this is the information I have:

King Griffin b: abt 1812 d: abt 1890
-Married: Anna Black b: abt 1810 d: abt 1860

Simon Griffin b: abt 1846 d: 24 Jan 1883
Mary Elizabeth Griffin b: 1848
Charles Griffin b: abt 1858

The only information I have on Edward and Lydia Griffin is that they were his parents and Edward was born around 1780.

According to an issue of The Landmark (Statesville, NC) issue date: 9 Feb 1883.
-King and Simon Griffin of Martin Co. had some sort of argument which ended with King Griffin shooting his son Simon Griffin.

-Also, there are many hints that I have found that King Griffin was in the Civil War. (Confederate)
-Enlisted: 10 May 1861 as private 17th Infantry Regiment N.C. (1st organization)
-Transfered: 8 Oct 1861 as private 31st Infantry Regiment N.C.
-Enlisted: 16 May 1862 as corporal 4th Calvary Regiment N.C.

There is also a listing showing King Griffin for desertion as well as a prisoner of war.

I hope this helps, It would also be helpful if you have already found any other information.
