Birth: 1842

General is the son of Jackson Griffin and Susannah Brewer. Born in Union county, NC he is a brother to Burrell, Mary, Elizabeth, William George, Eliza Jane, Wilson L, Thomas F, James S and Mahala Frances A Griffin Melton. General is third of these 10 children.

General's brother, Burrell, enlisted in 1861 in Company B of the NC 26th infantry. He died in service to the Confederacy near Petersburg, VA in August 1862.

General enlisted in Co E, NC 48th infantry on 19 Mar 1862 and mustered out, with injuries, on 14 Mar 1865. According to Union county records he participated in battle at Sharpsburg and was wounded there. Legend says he was wounded in his right arm and the right thigh at a place called Wilderness sometime around May 5-6, 1864. He was later wounded in the chest in battle at Gaines' Mill Virginia, June 11, 1864.

General married Mary Jane unknown and they are the parents of Leander, Thomas, Sarah and Burrell Griffin. He supported his family by farming.

General was admitted to the asylum soon after it opened in the Spring of 1883. His marker indicates that he was the 174th person admitted to the new facility so it is likely he was admitted in late 1883.
