Funeral Services Held Today for
Pioneer of Laclede County
Anderson Douglas Griffin, a resident of Laclede County for 70 years, died at his home here at 12:30 o'clock Tuesday night as a result of a paralytic stroke he suffered two weeks ago. He was 78 years old.

Funeral services were held at 1 o'clock this afternoon at the White Oak Pond church, of which he had been a member for many years. The services were conducted by the Rev. J. A. Russell of Phillipsburg. Burial was in the cemetery there.
Acting as pallbearers were six grandsons, Harvey, Herschel, Harold and Ross Griffin, Qris O'Quinn and Earl Scott.

"Uncle Doug," as he was familiarly known, was born in Winchester, Illinois, and came to this county with his parents Mr. and Mrs. Richard Griffin, when he was a small boy. The family settled on Brush Creek, 10 miles south of Lebanon, and Mr. Griffin spent his life in that neighborhood until he retired from active farming 15 years ago and moved to Lebanon.

He is survived by his wife, five sons and three daughters. They are: A. A. , Homer, Elmer, Fred and Vester Griffin, Mrs. Charles Wagoner, Mrs. Maude Scott and Mrs. Alma O'Quinn all residing in Laclede County. Also surviving are 27 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, and two brothers, John and Charles Griffin, residing near Lebanon.

Attending the funeral from a distance were Houston Brown and Mrs. Cora Bryan, both of Oklahoma City, Mr. and Mrs. John Massey of Percy, Iowa, and Mr. and Mrs. Jeff McWhirter, Mrs. Mary Fritts and Mrs. Remmer all of Aurora, Missouri.
