Griffith born about 1800 in NC and his wife Susana Roe born in 1804 in Caswell Co NC I am looking for information of the deaths of James S. Griffith born about 1800 in NC  and his wife Susana Roe born in 1804 in Caswell Co NC in 1804.  James S. Griffith born about 1800 in NC married Susana Roe Jan 31, 1822 in Caswell NC according to Marriage Bond Records of Caswell County. Caswell County  is right next to Rockingham County  North Carolina and was formed in 1777 from Orange County. Bondsman was Robert Roe, her oldest brother. North Carolina started requiring marriage bonds in 1741 and continued to do so until 1868. A bond was an amount of money put up to guarantee that there were no reasons for the marriage not to take place. North Carolina, Marriage Collection, 1741-2004 Name: James Griffith    Spouse: Susanna Roe Marriage Date: 31 Jan 1822 Marriage county: Caswell     Marriage State: North Carolina Source Vendor: County Court Records - FHL # 0478484-0478488 Source: County Court Records at Yanceyville, NC & Family H James and Susanna Griffith lived in North Carolina until at least 1836 when their daughter Nancy was born. Susanna's brothers Robert, Joseph and James Rowe moved to Texas about 1833 and settled in San Augustine County, the colony operated by the empresario, Doctor Lorenzo Zavalla. They  were all issued land grants in San Augustine, San Augustine County Texas between 1833 and 1836. They were all patriots and served their state well. James S. Griffith was one of the originial landowers in Upshur County Texas, as evidenced in early land records. (Survey: JAMES S GRIFFITH  Grantee: J. GRIFFITH  Leag Sect: 226 ABS: 172 ) James Rowe, Susanna's brother,  later moved north to Panola County around Carthage in a community called Old Center. Her brothers Joseph and Robert Rowe eventually moved to the Austin area where they lived until their deaths. A land record for James S. Griffith shows that he first arrived in Texas on 1 Jan. 1838.  The amount of land was 640 acres issued on 8 Aug. 1839, in San  Augustine County.  He was one of the original land owners in Texas. (Land survery was for James S. Griffith and Grantee was "J. S. Griffin", an example of his name being spelled in different ways. ) Other Griffiths who were awarded land in San Augustine County at the same time were Lycurgus E., a doctor from Maryland,  who arrived in June 1836 and was issued 640 on June 8, 1839 and Michael B. Griffith, also from Maryland,  who arrived June 1, 1839 and received 640 acres on Nov 28, 1839.

However, by 1868 the family returned to Texas--perhaps by the natural disasters, such as tornadoes, floods, and blizzards which were regular events in Iowa history. Loss of life was often considerable. No record can be found of the deaths of James and Susan Griffith. Perhaps they died while the family was in Iowa.

This researcher believes these are the graves of the children of James and Susan Griffith. No children have been identified as being born between their marriage in 1822 and the birth of Joe in 1830. It is likely that Abraham and Gertrude were children born in those early years.  The graves of James and Susan have not been located. Note: Caswell County North Carolina marriages also listed Richard H Griffith Judith Starkey 10 Dec 1820 --the same age group as James. Perhaps this is a brother of James.

    1. [EAST-TEXAS-ROOTS] FYI TO SHARE
    2. Lou Ann via
    3. There is a web site that would be very beneficial to everyone that needs the information or that knows someone who might benefit from it. These people are all over the United States and having something that would help many people, especially in these times. Go to this site: http://www.thecemeteryexchange.com/ Click on "buy" and see the states listed and those that have registered to help others obtain cemetery lots. In most ads you will be able to see the asking price today of the cemetery for the lots and the price the owner is willing to sell their property for. In many of these you can save thousands of dollars by taking advantage of the offerings. Many of these people have moved/relocated and need to sell their property. Some have inherited family property that they are not going to use because they live elsewhere or any other reason you might imagine and want to offer a savings for others. However, the savings are great for those that need this help or are interested in purchasing their family lots. The cemetery does not offer any help purchasing their lots other than financing. If you check, you will see that the lots, especially in the larger or more popular cemeteries' price will increase about $100 per year. This expense, when a funeral is very expensive without adding in the lots to be purchased at the same time, can be devastating to families without life insurance to help with the costs. I just thought you'd want to know that is out there to help others and to share. It's not advertised anywhere that I've seen and it needs to be.

    3. Hi Jim, thanks for the post. I'm sorry but the post you saw submitted asking about the books was two years old. I did have a bunch of books for sale, but not anymore. They are all gone. I wish I could help. The Clayton Genealogical library here in Houston is huge and has a zillion books from counties everywhere. You can probably find a bunch of stuff there. Here is the website for Cherokee Co., TX, you may find something here: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txcherok/ I can help with census search if you'll give me the names you are looking for and if you know what year you want me to start.
