"David Griggs, born about 1798 in Rowan County, North Carolina. He came as an infant with his parents to Clark County, Kentucky, where he grew to manhood and married there on July 20, 1818 to Mary Groves. As of 1830, David, with brothers Burgess and John, were the only Griggs families still listed in Clark County on the census. David later moved to Estill County, Ky., where he married (2) on August 19, 1846 to Elizabeth Smotherly, they had a son John born there in 1847. His wife probably died shortly thereafter as he married there a third time on
October 30, 1849 to Elizabeth Shearer, born 1826 in Kentucky. Among his children were Sally Ann (born 1822 Ky) and Elisha A. Griggs (born 1830-1 in Kentucky. This Elisha named a grandson Millard Clifton Griggs.) According to the 1830 census he also had a son born 1825-30 (could be Elisha or possibly Wade H. Griggs, born 1829 in Ky and living 1850 in Estill County with Elisha); a daughter born 1825-30; and three daughters born 1820-25 (one would be Sally Ann). The other three daughters could be Abby, Eliza and Luan."

"Fielding Griggs, born about 1797 in Kentucky (according to 1850 Estill County, Ky., census). He, if that old, was probably really born in Rowan County, North Carolina and raised in Kentucky. He married in Estill Co., Ky., on May 7, 1816 to Achilley "Millie" Abney, born 1795 in Virginia. I do not have much on this family, (only that his four youngest children were named Louise, Polly, Milly, Martha and Fielding). Other possible children include Roland, Allen, Eliza and Abby, but the last two could also be daughters of David Griggs."

"Joshua Griggs, birthdate not known or anything else except he appears on the list of heirs of Minus Griggs on a land transaction in Clark County, Kentucky. The only other record found of Joshua is on another Clark County record stating Joshuay Griggs of Virginia, so apparently he moved to that state."
