Ida Kate Griffin
Birth: Jul. 1, 1904
Ozark County
Missouri, USA
Death: 1915
Ozark County
Missouri, USA

Ida was the elder sister of my maternal grandfather, Johnnie M. Griffin (b 4-11-1913, d 2-15-1991). She was the daughter of Judge William M. Griffin (b 7-1-1866, d 10-22-1937) and Matilda J. Duncan Griffin (b 6-26-1872, d 3-27-1958), and was know as "Grandpa's (William Griffin's) Little Girl." She contracted spine abifida and passed away at a very young age. All the pictures that I have seen of her had her seated on her father's lap as she was an invalid and never able to stand or walk. PVT Arthur C. Davis (b 2-26-1844, d 10-16-1922) was very fond of her, was the only person besides her parents that could make her smile, and lost his mind within a few years of her passing. Little Ida was a sad, serious little girl who seldom smiled but her smile was said to be a beautiful thing, and she was never known to have spoken a word. Her siblings included: Celia May (b 4-27-1891, d 4-20-1984), George Nelson (b 1-28-1893, d 1925), Willis Alfred (b 4-15-1895, d 1-7-1959), Lee Roy (b 6-29-1897, d 1980's), Floyd (b 2-27-1900, d 5-29-1984), Myrtle Alice (b 3-9-1902, d 1-4-1961), Hayden Opal (b 10-30-1907, d 4-15-1975), Hollis (b 4-11-1909, d 12-29-1980), Johnny Monkey (b 4-11-1913, d 2-15-1991), and Wilma Sylvia (b 11-21-1917).
