Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 16, 1788
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 16, 1863
Pickens County
South Carolina, USA

Avarilla was one of fourteen children of Benjamin Franklin Barton and Dorcas Anderson Barton. Avarilla married Sargent Griffin and they lived in the Glassy Mountain area of now Pickens County, South Carolina. Avarilla and Sargent gave land for Griffin Baptist Church and they are buried and each have tombstones in the church cemetery. Thirty-eight pages fill the record pack of Sargent Griffin on file in Pickens County,SC - he was a wealthy, slave holding family in the community. Avarilla and Sargent were parents of Elihu Holby Griffin, unnamed infant, Dorcas, William Monroe, Benjamin Franklin, Barton, Sargent (Jr.), Richard Harrison, Anderson, Thomas, Avarilla, Bailey and Vashti Q. Griffin. Six of the sons moved from SC to Benton (Calhoun) Co., Alabama. William Monroe Griffin was my great-great grandfather. NGL compiled The Griffin Family book in 1995 and copies have been placed in libraries in SC and AL and books have been distributed to Griffin family members all across the United States.

⭐️ I have had requests to transfer this memorial, but I, too, am a direct descendant as hundreds of other contributors, so at the present time I shall maintain this ancestor's Find A Grave memorial. ⭐️
