Benjamin Griffith & Ann

Benjamin & Ann GRIFFITH are thought to be my 8th paternal great grand parents.

I say thought to be, because, well, I just don't know.

I have linked Jackson GRIFFITH to Benjamin by one, yes one, document - an abstract of Benjamin's will in which Benjamin leaves to Jackson a parcel of land named "Eastern Neck" - the very same one that Jackson later leaves to his daughters Martha & Asenath. Other than that - not a thing.
