Dear Gay:

I saw your note to John Adams in the 'Taylor Tracer' recently and thought I'd share some GRIFFITH info. I have compiled. GRIFFITH is not one of my family lines, but because of a possible intermarriage with one of my lines, I kept the info. My questions is: do you have any info. re. Henrietta SHINE who m. Francis Marion GRIFFITH. SHINE in my major line of research and I can't determine how Henrietta fits. All the SHINEs in Taylor Co. are of the same line. Hope something here helps you and I look forward to hearing from you. I'm open to additions/corrections.
