|My great grandmother was Kate Marthaellen Griffin; she had a sister named Lenore (Nora) Griffin. The girls were reared in the Orphan Asylum in Westchester County, NY. They were born in 1863 and 1865. I think their mother's name may have been Catherine. The girls were sent west on an Orphan Train to Maquoketa, Iowa in 1876. Nora returned to NYC in 1880 where she worked as a nurse. Does anyone know early history of these girls?|
|My grandfather, John Griffin, came to Rhode Island from Cork in the late 1800's. My Father, Joseph F. Griffin, Sr. and I were born here. In 1950 the Griffin family had a cousin from Ireland visit us by the name of John Corcoran. He stayed a few days then continued to California (I think Daily City) where he settled. In 1950, this cousin looked about 45-50 yrs old (I have a few old pictures). Any information on either of these families would be appreciated. Many thanks.|

|Recently learned of a marriage between Charles Leroy Griffin Jr and Dorothy Paim Griffin. They may have had a couple of children. I am desperate to find these children. There father left Massachusetts in 1954 never to be heard from again. Charles Jr's parents were Charles Sr and Doris Myreck Griffin. If you have any information please reply|
I would like to meet more of my family.|
Wetumpka, Montgomery, Tallassee, Luisville Alabama.
If you are across the pond, The British Isles, write me and I will tell you what I know about the Griffins here in the states, your age unimportant. I am related to a Greenberry Griffin from Maryland 1773-1847, I am looking for his parents who I believe to be Greenberry Griffin Sr and Mary unknown. I know very little beyond that except he was a schoolteacher, so his parents were well educated for their time. I await your letters.
Thanks in advance,
|I'm a Griffin from Topeka Ks. Looking for Griffins from everywhere. Have lost touch with alot of my family.|
|Related, grandparents Laura and Robert Griffin|
|I am the son of Leo J. Griffin, Jr. (2/27/1919 -8/13/1992), grandson of Leo J. Griffin (3/3/1892 - 12/13/1965), great grandson of Patrick J. Griffin (born in Ireland around 1869 - died 9/30/1952) and great great grandson of James Griffin of Ireland. James Griffin's wife (my great great grandmother) was Debora Curnane also of Ireland. I am uncertain where my Irish roots were but I believe it may be somewhere in County Roscommon. Patrick married Mary G. Flanagan in Ireland before relocating to Boston around 1890. Mary's parents were James Flanagan and Bridget Horan and she had at least one brother, Peter Joseph Flanagan born May 25, 1872 in County Roscommon.|
What a great website you have created. So much information and all the photographs. What I especially enjoyed about your site were the biographies of the family members. This was not just names and dates, but real people. Great job, well done.
Best wishes and greetings from P.E.I.
|I was just looking for some insight on how many griffins there are. Plus i was looking to see how many i am actually related too?|
|Just looking for answers to some geneolgy. I am interested in Koonrod (coonrod-conrod-conrad-kuhenrod-kuenrod) - Griffin lineage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Maybe in Georgia. Koonrod may have worked under a man named Griffin and took on his last name, circa 1840's-1860's. Thank Yo8u, William Griffin|
|I can't believe just how many Griffins there are! It's astonishing really. My Grandfather John Griffin was moved to the Midlands UK (Where I was born) when he was very young; but he came from a village I only know as Nantyffachland in Wales. I don't know where it is or even if that is the correct spelling. I do know you have to be careful how you pronounce it, it always gets a giggle :-)|
|Some time ago, almost a year now, I came across your site and know that in the Griffin family there mention of, John Anderson. Can you possibly give me any information on John Anderson from Pulaski County, Kentucky? Thank you so much.|

|GREAT JOB on this website!! Looking for Griffin links in upstate New York; Franklin, St Lawrence, Clinton, Jefferson Counties. John and Mary Griffin came from Ireland, I don't know what part, to Fort Covington, NY around 1825 with their son, Michael, my GGG grandfather. The section of Ft Covington that they had settled in became Bombay, NY around 1833. They were farmers and many of their children were farmers, I think dairy farmers. John and Mary's kids were John S., Delia, James Henry, Daniel, Mary Ann, Michael Malcolm born between 1841 and 1859. My GG grandfather, James Henry, married a Mary Etta Hall from Long Island, NY in 1868. They ended up going to the Chester, PA area around 1875, and later settling in Monmouth County, NJ by 1890. My G grandfather William S was born in Norwalk, CT in 1868, and my grandfather, Charles Allen in Eatontown, NJ in 1893. Please let me know if any of these names fit into any of your families !|
|Catherine Hickman and George Washington Tustison were my great-grandparents. My father was also George Washington Tustison, son of Arthur Tustison, I am a member of DAR, with all necessary geneology required to join, back to John Jacob Scherer, and Jacob John Scherer, both father and son served two terms in the Revolutionary Army. I'd be happy to help fill in gaps if I can.|

|My great-grandfather, Allen LeRoy Griffin, Sr., born circa 1899-1900, claimed to have been adopted by a preacher / farming family in VT or NH. Said his mother could not keep him and his siblings, and that his father was a French Canadian fur trapper who did not support the family. Had a sister named Pearl, as well as another sister or two. As a result, we dont know if "Griffin" was his surname, or that of the adopted family. Our family tree is a stump! Does this story sound familiar to anyone? Do you have any lost adopted waifs in your family history? This site is awesome!|
I have good history on a Griffin line going back from the present in Santa Clara, CA to April 12,
1912 in Chanute, KS when my grandfather, Frank Burr Griffin married Rose Christina Feld, daughter
of Katie Rensing Feld and William Henry Feld. My grandfather's parents were Hattie Alice and Calvin
Willard Griffin. My grandfather told me that his line of Griffins came from Illinois by way of MA, and
beyond there from over the pond to what he called 'a Duke's mixture' of Irish, Scot, Welsh, and Dutch.

|Hello all, This is a great website and as well i am looking for family. Got a few Griffins here in my area. My grandfather was John Griffin from Philadelphia|
I am not a Griffin, however I am searching for family members of the late English Griffin or Cassie L (Reed) Griffin. They were married 3-4-1961 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Mr. Griffin was a very close family member and when he passed he left his estate to my grandmother. My grandmother has since passed and I have a few personal items that I think his family may be interested in having (especially those interested in family history).
Please contact me by e-mail

My gt. grandparents were Oscar Edwin ( born 1875 in Clarksville Ark)and Mary Josephine Turner Griffin. My grandparents were Grace Griffin Boman (born 1897 in Clarksville Ark) and Elbert Jackson Boman (born 1882 in Gadsen Al). Grace's sibs. were Ralph Edwin, Lelia Ann, and Arthur A. Griffin.

I dont know to much about my dads side of the family except that alot of the men were all William James Griffin, his dad was and his dad and so forth etc etc. I also no that my grandfather was born in Wales.|

|He nice website!! Most of my family is from Reynolds, Indiana. My grandparents are Lloyd and Laura Griffin. It is so interesting to see how many griffins there are.|
|Greetings to all the Griffins worldwide. Nice to belong to such a large clan. My family comes from Stranorlar, County Donegal in Ireland. The Griffin family motto is "Ne vile velis" (Wish for nothing vile). The earliest reference to an Irish Griffin that I can find is from 12th Century when one of our ancestors was tutor to the son of the High King of Ireland. Obviously we are a very intelligent family!|

Good morning members of the Griffin Family tree!|
I am trying to locate the Griffin members from my grandfather's family tree. His name was Harry Pearl Griffin, son of Jas (James?) and Rebecca Powell Griffin. He and my grandmother, Ruth Earnest, were married June 9, 1910. The Washington County Kansas courthouse marriage license has his age at that time to be 28 and his nationality registered as English. My grandparents met in Topeka where they may have both been working at the Topeka Industrial School. My grandparents had 2 sons, Matthew Murdy, that died as an infant, and my father, Harry Griffin who passed away in 1992. After a bitter divorce, around 1915, my grandfather was no longer heard from. I have attempted unsuccessfully over the last 15 years to locate information on his family. My family would love to believe he went on to lead a successful and happy life. As he came from the Topeka Kansas area, we are hoping there may have been other family members that lived close at the time.
Since my grandmother would not discuss the situation, we have virtually nothing to go on. Someday, I hope to make it back to Topeka to do a census search. If anyone has information I would surely appreciate it.

|Thank you for a great site. Catherine Hickman Tustison is my g,g,g grandmother. Your bio on her mother Catherine Sherer Hickman has great importance to me, because it discusses her expertise in fiber arts. I have in my possession a woven counter pane that she and her daughter Catherine made. I'm sure it was for Catherines wedding trunk as the subject matter is George Washington and she married George Washington Tustison. The coverlet is in very nice condition and I value it greatly. The weaving and colors are exquisite. It was given to me by Charles Cornelius Tustison's daughter Florence Ethel Tustison Stoll a few years before her death.|
My great grandfather was called Regionald Griffin and came from S Irland to Southampton in about 1820 and traded as a taylor.
I would be interested to hear from anybody who has come accross him in their research.
I am looking for my birthmother ELEANOR E. GRIFFIN.|
She was married to my father James Patrick Lynch between 1945-55. I do not have more information, my father died in 1977.
Unfortunately my mother left our home but she is married twice. We lived in Jersey City until 1955.
I would like to know if she is still living and whether she lives in Jersey.
And would like to know if she has siblings who have childrens who could be my cousins or other relatives.
Probably Eleanor is born around 1925 ...
I would be appreciate if somebody has anything on Griffin line in Jersey or anywhere.
|Looking for information on Mary Elizabeth Price of Kentucky. She married my great=grandfather, Cornelious King Griffin, in Dickson County Tn in the middle 1800's.|
