I am working on this profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Griffin-5955. My problem with it is that the Elizabeth Griffin that is my 4th G grandmother married Ambrose Christopher Sr. and she died in about 1798 in Rutherford County, NC.
The Elizabeth Griffin who married Jarrett Wright and died in KY in 1844 is totally different person and her parents are not Ralph and Susanna Griffin.
I have wasted countless hours trying to discover who the 2nd Elizabeth's parents were, but there are just so many Elizabeth Griffin's in that timeframe, it is almost impossible to figure out the truth. The closest I can come is a Richard Griffin and Anna Clark in Laruns County, SC.
There is no record of the marriage of Ambrose and Elizabeth. Where people get that they were married in 1773 is beyond me. Just a ques as far as I can tell.
My proof of my Elizabeth's death in 1798 comes from the Autobiography of her son Rev Dr. Ralph Griffin Christopher. Here is the first paragraph of the document:
I was born according to the Family register, as well as now recollected October 10th, 1787, in the state of Virginia, Halifax County, near Boyd's Ferry, on the Dan River. My father's name was Ambrose and my mother's name was Elizabeth. My mother was a Griffin, daughter of Ralph and Susan Griffin. My grandmother was a very pious woman, prayed much, and I have often thought that many of the blessings of the Lord upon me have been in answer to her prayers. My parents were both poor, but respectable and industrious and by their care and labor were in a very pretty way to become wealthy, but by reverse of fortune my father lost most of his property, and became I believe discouraged and took to drink and never regained his property. When I was about the age of ten or twelve, by father moved from Virginia to North Carolina, Rutherford County. Here we lost our mother, a loss too great to ever be repaired.
My Elizabeth had a brother Louis Griffin and I recently found a auDNA match to one of his descendents. We are 6C1X. Going that far back at Gedcom '1 to 1' requires going down to 3cM to find any shared segments. I have run her auDNA against all my Y-DNA matches and auDNA matches and mapped the matching segments into a DNA Painter profile. There are many overlaps which confirm the relationship between Griffin and Christopher descendants.
I do not want to just change someone else's profile, I am just asking how I can get this corrected. BTW this mistake is also on Ancestry.com and Geni.com
