I just added Sarah McGriff, wife of Richard McGriff, to the Excluded Individuals list because there is insufficient evidence that she was a resident of Henry County prior to 1830. Her obituary is in the September 12, 1873 edition of the "Henry County Register." It states that Sarah was the wife of Richard McGriff and a resident of Henry County for about forty years. "About 40 years" would put Sarah in Henry County circa 1833. She married Richard McGriff in Henry County on November 20, 1834. Her surname before the marriage was King. There is an Elizabeth King in the 1830 census who has a couple of daughters of marrying age. One could be Sarah. The only King on the Pre-1830 Henry County Pioneers website is a Nathan King who is on the Excluded Inhabitants List.
If a descendant of Richard McGriff and Sarah King McGriff has evidence that Sarah was, indeed, a resident of Henry County prior to 1830, I'll happily create a web page for her.
