About Edward Griffin

Her father was Edward Griffin, a Carolina trader from Charles Town, South Carolina.

From http://www.jstor.org/stable/23645459?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

"Mary was a child of the deerskin trade, born to an English father and a Creek mother at the Creek Indian town of Coweta .... Mary's lineage through her mother likely included the upper levels of Creek society, yet her father, Edward Griffin, was only a hireling employed by Col. Thomas Broughton of South Carolina. Griffin was an intriguing individual who left a record of illegal dealings in Native slaves and other goods. Hahn contends that the relationship between Mary's mother and father was a lasting union that also produced a son, Edward Griffin, Jr."
