I note the James Fleming Griffin in your post - do you know
of any earlier or other Fleming family connections to
your Griffins and where they came from pre USA?
I have Griffin & Fleming family connections in Ireland
and Australia the families coming here in the 1800s.
The Griffins/Griffiths were a welsh peasant family apparently ending up in Tyrone... the earliest known being
an Alexander who married Jane Sommerville/Summerfield.
Their daughter Mary Griffin married John William Fleming
and had 3 issue who came to oz
