Laura Peller (or Peeler-maiden name from family notes) was born in New York, according to Censuses. She married Ezra Griffin (Jr.) on 18 September 1825 in Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH. To this union, six children were born: Cordelia (1825-?), James B. (1828-1895), Albert E. (1831-1923), Julietta Lorrianna (1833-1923), Elliot (1835-1923), and Orlando (1843-?). Ezra's occupation was a farmer. Both Marriage certificate and her daughter Julietta's death certificate give Laura's maiden name as Griffin.
Ezra and Laura resided in Morgan, Ashtabula Co., OH in 1850; Trumbull, Ashtabula Co., OH in 1860; Ezra died in 1866 and is buried in the Brown Cemetery near Pawnee, in Hamilton Township, Harrison Co., MO.
Ezra and Laura helped their children raise their families, particularly Albert's. Albert was widowed 3 times with young children each time.
