John and Barbara Griffis/Griffiths/Griffice/Griffious
Posted by: Linda J Griffis (ID *****2067) Date: August 30, 2004 at 20:36:44

Hello. I am Linda Jane Griffis. I am seeking infomation on Land Records, Birth Records, Death Records, Burial Records, any type of record that can be documented. This Documentation can be a page from a family Bible, a picture of a head stone, funeral home records. Any document that is not an official record MUST be noterized please. This is for admission into the Daughers of the American Revolution.

I know that most of the Official records for Four Holes Swamp, Orangeburgh District, South Carolina were burned, but I am praying that maybe ancestor passed infomation down and that a family member can document it.

The Family that I am needing records on is: John Griffis, born 1754 in Orangeburg Dist. SC, John died between 1781 & 1783, and his wife Barbara LNU. I have a little more infomation on Barbara. But only in regards to some Land Records and have no documentation on them as of yet.

Could anyone please tell me if the book written by Judith M. Brimlow called Accounts audited of claims growing out of the Revolution is available for purchase or if it is online. Any books or papers written by Alexander S. Salley and Bobby Moss online or available for purchase.

One other thing, does anyone know how Griffis/Griffice/Grieffous/Griffiths/many other various spelling was spelled in the old country?

I live in Orange Park, Clay County, Florida would it be worth my time to take a trip up there to check out the Local Records Room Richland County Library and The South Carolina Department of Archives and History there in Columbia County?

Thank you for any informantion you may have, and for helping me.
Linda Jane
