This is my Grandmother Lillian Mae Griffith Rice B 9 Sept 1898 D 24 June 1977, she is a direct descendant of William Griffith and his wife Sarah McCubbin, so I guess we are related. The story was told in our family that William Griffith was hijacked while in London and brought to MD to work as a planter. My research has led me to he was from London, born in Wales, came to MD on a ship with 2 men who were paid to bring people to MD. After a number of years William was given land.
