FIELDS, GRIFFIN, MEHARG, SANDERS posted by Carolyn Kimble on Sunday, January 3, 1999

GRIFFIN and MEHARG and FIELDS ancestry- -Any additional information on the following family members mentioned would be much appreciated. I would especially love to see any will records, land records, etc. for any of the family members. I am doing genealogical research for family of Richard GRIFFIN and Mary MEHARG GRIFFIN. They were married on April 13, 1837 in Calhoun (Benton) County. They remained in Calhoun County for at least 25 years and perhaps the remainder of their lives. Richard GRIFFIN originates from SC and his wife Mary MEHARG GRIFFIN originates from NC. According to census records, their household included Mary E. MEHARG, Darcus E. GRIFFIN, Richard S. GRIFFIN, Henry M. GRIFFIN, Sarah A. GRIFFIN, Andrew GRIFFIN, another Mary MEHARG GRIFFIN, and George GRIFFIN. My husband's family is descended from Richard S. (Samuel) GRIFFIN, their oldest son. He was born on June 9, 1840, in Calhoun County. Richard Samuel GRIFFIN's first marriage took place in Calhoun County on July 29, 1861, to Eliza F. N. SANDERS. He later married Parilee FIELDS in Pickens Co., AL (March 26, 1893) after which they moved to Lowndes County, Mississippi, where he resided until his death in 1918. I have some more information, but I have almost no information on Richard's father, Benjamin GRIFFIN and mother Mary MEHARG. I also know almost nothing about Parilee FIELDS family except that she was born in AL. I only know what I found on the census records. Can you help me. If so, I would much appreciate it.
