GRIFFITH

Journal by kerry4305

I am trying to gather information on Elihu Griffith(married Edna Sophrona Brister) and his family who lived in Lawrence Co., Mississippi. Elihu,s Daughter Mary married George M Hughes of Smith Co., MS and when Mary died George married her sister Rhoda and moved their family to Louisiana. George and Rhoda were my Mother In-Laws Grand Parents. My husband and I find it difficult to gather information on his family in the states while we live in Australia. Any information regarding these families would be wonderful.
Thank you
Kerry Hughes
