Surnames: Griffith, Edwards, Caines, Nickell, Evans
I was born at Blaine, Ky. between Caines Creek and Lower Laurel Creek on Blaine Creek at the home of Henry Griffith, my grandfather and grandmother Bess Edwards Griffith. Meredith Edwards, Gabriel Griffith and Richard Caines came to Floyd Co., Ky. in the early 1800s. The families intermarried and I have some records on them from the courthouse at Louisa. I can trace the Griffith line back to Augusta Co., Va. before it stops. The Caines line goes back to Va. too before it ends. And Edwards comes from the Roaring River area of Wilkes Co., N.C. before it ends. I am trying to research lineage past them. Tony Ramey
