Family Lore said his name was James Carr Griffith, also this is how his name is listed in the Family Bible. Grew up in Haywood County, North Carolina. I have traced James and other family members in Haywood County, Census from 1870-1910. Cannot find anything on James in the 1860 or 1920 Census in Haywood County, North Carloina.

However I did find the following in the South Carolina, 1860 US Census about James Griffith
Name: James Griffith
Age in 1860: 23
Birth Year: abt 1837
Birthplace: South Carolina
Home in 1860: Fork Shoal, Greenville, South Carolina
Post Office: Ashmores Store

This is a large Family. Would this be a Broading House? Anyone have any info on any of the following Family members?
