Griffith/Griffey/Griffy of Floyd & Pike County, KY and VA

I am seeking help on my maternal line. My grandfather, ESTILL GRIFFITH, was born ~1913 near Meta, Pike County, Kentucky. He was married to a WHEELER and was a Captain in the Ashland Fire Dept. He always said the family was Welsh.
His father JOHN WILSON GRIFFITH, was born ~1886 there as well (to the best of my knowledge) and married a SALYER or SALYERS. He lived in John's Creek.

His father, GEORGE GRIFFITH was most likely born ~1829 in Russell County, VA or Floyd/Pike County, KY, married first a BLACKBURN then later a FRANCESCO or CESCO. He lived in John's Creek. George apparently used GRIFFEE, GRIFFY, & GRIFFEY for his last name as well.

I believe that George's father was a JOHN GRIFFITH, based on a marriage record that I have for George. He may have live in Floyd County, KY.

I would appreciate any help.

I know my GGGF George Griffy had a son George as well. He is the brother of my GGF John W. Griffy/Griffith.

George Sr. was maaried to Matilda Francesco/Francisco/Cisco and John W. was married to Kessie Salyers. I do not know who George Jr. was married to, but I think all of these people lived in Pike County - the Floyd County I am unsure of.

Are you sure your Matilda's lastname was Childers?

I don't have your Griffiths in my file but I would think there is a better than average chance that they could be desc. from Abel Griffith of Augusta Co., VA. My mother is a Griffith from Blaine, Lawrence Co., KY. Her line goes thru one of the 4 Griffith brothers who came before 1820 from Tazwell Co, VA to what was then Floyd Co. (formed 1800) in eastern KY. I believe other Griffiths followed later and may include yours.
Abel Griffith had at least 2 wifes and about 8 children with one and 11 with the other. I haven't tried to trace his many desc., except my line, but I do have info about him and if anyone is interested I'll be glad to send it.
