Surnames: Griffis/Hutto
I am a direct descendant of the Griffis family (SC, GA then Bradford Co. Florida). Amos Griffis was ancestor (married to Emma Etta Raulerson).
I have to inform you that although the Griffis family lived near Germans/Dutch families, the Griffis are from England and Wales, as are the Hutto families. I have traced both those lines back to Westmoreland and Cumberland region of England and Wales to the year 1012AD!! The Griffis families were most notable in their even earlier origin in Wales, they have a Crest from that country (before it was conquered and became part of the British Empire over 800 years ago). Griffis and Hutto familes are NOT German, please correct - it is a serious matter for a Welsh or Englishman to have his descendants think he/she is german...wrong culture, and wrong language.
Also, on your #52. for Edna Bradley (my grandmother) who married George Milligan Strickland, please add for the children in addition to the daughter,Marian, that you note.....my father, George Milligan Strickland, Jr., Audrey and Barbara. Now you have all the siblings...all still living.
Thank you.
