Leroy Emerson Griffin was the last child born to Jasper William (J.W.) and Jinett (Buchner) Griffin. He lived in Hinton Twp., Mecosta Co., MI all of his childhood life and married Jessie Tripp on January 2, 1918 in Big Rapids, Mecosta Co., MI. He was inducted into the U.S. Army (World War I) in Big Rapids, MI on April 29, 1918 and discharged out of Camp Custer in Battle Creek Michigan on April 27, 1919. Leroy and Jessie resided in Lakeview a few years, moved to Meridian Twp., Ingham Co. and resided there for a few years before finally settling on a farm at the corner of Aurelius and Willoughby in Holt, Ingham Co., MI about 1937. Just before his death in 1968, they sold most of their property but saved a little acreage and built a new house on the lot next to the farm. Leroy and Jessie had 11 children, one infant stillborn son on October 29, 1921. Not only did Leroy do farming raising crops such as corn, raspberries but also worked at Reo Motors in Lansing and had other previous jobs. He was a member of the Morley S. Oates Post of Lasning, Veteran of Foreign Wars World War I Barracks No. 235. Leroy never got to live in the newly built house because of an illness and passed away at the age of 74 at the Veterans Hospital in Ann Arbor Michigan due to a stroke.
