About Grillias/Houston
Welcome to the Grillias Family Page.  We are still exploring the main branches of the  family including the Grillias', the Chrysikos', the Houston's and the Griffen's.  We  have lots of information and pictures to sift through but always appreciate material you may have.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information. Our latest finds indicate the long period of time that the family has been in  America.  Thanks to extensive research into the Griffen family by others, it looks  like Edward Griffin came to America in 1635.  See the included links below.

And there is a Mayflower link!

 Rebeckah (Browne) Snow (ABT 1631 – AFT 1699)
  William Snow (ABT 1662 – BEF 1726)
   Susanna (Snow) Alger (1694 – ABT 1730)
    James Alger (ABT 1728 – 1810)

      Martha (Dunbar) Edson (1777 – 1830)
       Alice Alger (Edson) Barstow (1798 – 1872)
        Martha E. (Barstow) Lane (1824 – 1902)
         Ella Star (Lane) Griffen (1855 – 1940) our great grandmother

It turns out that Martha E. (Barstow) Lane is a direct descendant of 4 Mayflower passengers: Peter  Browne, Francis Cooke, James Chilton and Richard Warren.
