Family Search has citations to support his parents being John and Anna Griifin. See ID# MX6C-F9X in Family Search.
I have found no additional information about John and Anna other than their names cited on William's birth record.  Kind of at a dead end.
Is there a WikiTree Profile Page for William Griffin?

I'm not sure.  Just discovered this site.

The following are some of the information/records I had located (via Ancestry Sharable Links). Many/most of them include actual documents.

New Hampshire, Birth Index, 1659-1900:

Find-A-Grave Memorial:

New Hampshire, Wills and Probate Records, 1643-1982:

Regarding the parents... I think that the mother's nickname was "Anna", but her actual first name was either "Susanna" or "Susannah".

I had located the following (possible/likely) information in regards to the parents (via Ancestry Sharable Links).

New Hampshire, Birth Index, 1659-1900:

New Hampshire, Marriage and Divorce Records, 1659-1947:

New Hampshire, Marriage and Divorce Records, 1659-1947:

New Hampshire, Birth Index, 1659-1900:

New Hampshire, Death and Disinterment Records, 1754-1947:

New Hampshire, Death and Disinterment Records, 1754-1947:

You should always keep in mind that, when it comes to dated information (and such), individuals with certain common & very uncommon names are typically used/documented with a Nickname, Abbreviated Name, Shortened name, etc...

Just "for example"... I've seen names like "John" being documented as "Jno" and "Samuel" being documented as "Saml" as well as "Susanna/Susannah" being documented as either "Susan" or "Anna" (just to name a few).

I can't state for certain that the above information for the parents are 100%, but based upon what I had personally found, those appear to be them as well as dates & locations jiving with the events.

I hope this was helpful for what your looking for and I had explained this okay via text... :-P

I do wish you the best of luck with your Ancestry/Genealogy search!

Hi James,

I don't have an answer for you, but wanted to welcome you to WikiTree. I am so glad that you introduced yourself in our g2g forum.

I did check WikiTree and did not see a William Griffin that was confirmed to be married to Taphath Tucker.

I hope you learn to love WikiTree as much as I do.
