      "John C Sr and Mary Griffin were married the 7th of Jan 1836 in Montgomery Co AL.  I believe that her father John Griffin came along with Jeremiah for he got a land grant dated the same as Jeremiah's and John's.  They are dated 1839 and states they have been in TX since 1836.  All of John and Mary's children were born in TX including my gr grandfather John Jr in 1845.  They may not have moved at all.......Since the changing of the county boundaries...    Ellen

      On October 19, 1998 Ellen (Williams) Crawford wrote regarding the following 1875 deed record:
      "The children of J C  Sr and Mary Griffin Cloud sold the land she had bought sometime earlier (I also have that deed).  The deed mentions all the children except Marion and Melissa...so they were probably deceased by that time."
