Looking for the names of the children of Elijah Griggs, May 14, 1797. Married Amy Rogers( I Think) in 1883. Elijah was the son of John Griggs and Mary Smith.

Hope you're still out there and looking...
I think you can find the answer in the 1850 census. Winslow Township, Jefferson County in PA. Page number I think is 129. You'll find Elijah and Amy at the top, followed by J.W. (22), Caroline (12), William H. (10), Andrew J. (8), and Louisa (5). Directly below this Griggs family is another listing Samuel G. as the head of household at 25 years old. My hunch is that Samuel is the oldest son of Elijah (but have no proof yet). I believe Eli can be traced back to the 1630's-40's, and he was born in NY. Any info you can share on him, ancestors or descendants would be greatly appreciated. Hope this helps.
