Calvin Peyton and Emilee Griffin

Does anyone know anything about any Peyton/Payton or Griffen/Griffin families that were in Wise County between 1780 and 1830? Supposedly my husband's ancestor, Calvin Peyton, was born in Wise County Virginia. He married an Emilee Griffin, who was also born in Virginia. The only thing we know is that they had a son named John Randolph Peyton and Martha Rebecca Peyton who were supposedly born in Tuscaloosa, AL in the early 1820's or 1830's. The earliest records we have of John and Martha is on the 1850 census in Hot Springs, AR. Other family stories say the Peytons came from Tennessee, or Mississippi, but supposedly from Virginia originally and all I have is a little piece of paper written that Calvin Peyton was born in Wise County, VA. You can e-mail at if you have any clues for us.
