      In looking for Griffin you might go back 10 years to 1840 census if anything but numbers and look for yours and neighbor family in same house. Is this father and son or maybe brothers? Other neighbors might be spouses family.
      Good Luck.

      Rhonda:

      I did quite a bit of searching on ancestry. Unfortunately Richard and
      Margaret Griffin are fairly common names (our brick wall ancestor seem to
      always have common names) and you don't have many details to nail them down
      to a location. The closest I can come up with is (and this doesn't match
      your ages):

      <http://content.ancestry.com/Browse/list.aspx?dbid=8054&path=> 1850 United
      States Federal Census >

      <http://content.ancestry.com/Browse/list.aspx?dbid=8054&path=Virginia.Halif
      ax> Halifax > Southern District on Oct 17 1850

      Richard Griffin age 68 Occupation Planter Born in VA

      Margaret 67 VA

      James 16 Occupation None VA

      Sarah 16 VA

      Margaret 13 VA

      Elizabeth 9 VA

      John S 7 VA

      Neighbors to Hampton & Jane Griffin and children Jane, Eliza, Nancy,
      William, Lucy, David, and James E (if I can read the handwriting)



      I would recommend continuing to dig up information on the most recent
      ancestor you know and try to gather more information: cities and counties
      of birth, exact dates, names of siblings and their information. When I
      can't find enough information on my relative I take a sibling and track
      their information. Sometimes that will lead you to information about their
      common parent. Seek birth certificates, death certificates, marriage
      certificates looking for parent's names and locations. Having a city and
      county helps if they stayed in the area a long time. Then you have a
      chance at cemetery records and tombstone information for death information.

      Keeping looking, it is a life long hobby. Good Luck.

      What I have as possible info on Richard Griffin is b. 1802 Margaret Pinson
      b. 1803, married in 1835 VA.
      Children:
      Sarah b. 1836 married Franklin Westmoreland
      Margaret b. 1837
      more children???

      I have tried ancestry.com with the free trial but every hit I get when I go
      to dig deeper it is paid information, so can't get to it. :(

      Thanks for your help!!!
      Rhonda

      Rhonda:

      Do you have a location where Richard and Margaret they lived? The more
      clues you give the easier it is for someone to help. Any children names
      or
      parent's name as a start or clue?

      I use ancestry.com It is a little expensive but they do have lots of
      information and adding more daily. You can customize your access to
      reduce
      the cost. You can also try the 14 day free trial some time when you have
      a
      couple of weeks to do some heavy research.
