John Samuel GRIFFITH, b 1831 ; KY and MO

Journal by sylvanie

John Samuel Griffith, b. Kentucky in 1831; married Demaris BRINK 1852 in Fayette Co., Kentucky. Moved to northwest Missouri (Kearney, Clay Co.) Looking for his parents' names and any other background. Thanks!

26 Jan 2010 - Still looking for the names of John Samuel GRIFFITH's parents; his father's name may have been Jefferson, but I cannot be certain because there was more than one John Griffith born in Kentucky in 1831 who later settled in northwest Missouri.

Hello! I meant Griffith and Brink as two separate names-I must have omitted the comma. Thanks!

Thanks very much, Dora! I'll add this to the file. I have also found out recently that John Griffith's father's name was Jefferson, and that he came from Kentucky and lived in Indiana a few years before getting to Jackson Co., Missouri. John's mother's name is also in the census, but can't quite be made out. Emily,(above)was my great-grandmother.

beth: I am ggranddaughter of same here. I have much on family too but need to know where you got Evans as middle name.

I believe you may have put two families together. Louisa F. Griffith married Levi Phillips. Griffith is common name. Let's help each other.
