I have a Zula Griggs who married a Charlie. She was born in 1905 and died in 1990. Could your Willis E. Griggs have been a brother of Richard Griggs (Zula's father 1875-1925)?

Zelda,

I just found a whole slew of Griggs at usgenweb.com. I ended up at rootsweb.com somehow, but that's how I found them. It had cemetary records, marriage records, clips from newspapers from the 1920's, etc.
Very interesting stuff.

Anyway, my Zula Griggs was from Ripley, TN. Her father's name was Richard, mother's name was Mary A. Ashmore Griggs. She had the following brothers and sisters that I know of so far:
Rosilee, Lucille J., Myrtle E., and possibly Richard and Robert L.

Mary A. Griggs maiden name was Woodward.
Richard may have had somewhere in his family:
Aubrey (1896-1925), and Wiley G. (1890-1977). I don't have very much information to go on for Richard Griggs. Let me know if any of these names sound familiar to you.
Sorry I couldn't email, I couldn't find your addy, mine is z_lark@yahoo.com

Thanks for responding so quickly!
Jody
