Hello I'm John T. Griffith, born in Oceanside California, a Viet Nam War US Army MP Veteran and a former CHP Officer. In September 2002, I assisted the National Archives Administration Center, Missouri, in replacing lost and destroyed US Army files. It was during that research project I discovered Find A Grave, wanted to be a part of it's concept and became a member. I have always had a passion for history and the people who have lived it. People in everyday life who through the needs and demands of their times shaped the world. I believe each day is a gift and the best part of any day is that day. I'm also a professional musician, still performing and haved shared the stage with many named artists. In addition, I'm a vintage guitar expert who has contributed, plus co-wrote for many vintage guitar books and articles in magazines about the subject. Plus I'm a photographer, writer and historian, for the San Diego Reader. I will also transfer any of my bios to folks of relatives or with a concerned interest. I, my wife Mary and our Dachshund "Timmy", reside in Vista, California. Thanks and best regards, John|

Thank you for linking him to his father. There is a great Civil War story about him in Chapter 11 of, "The Pariss Sims Family and Related Families 1765-1965." And you can download the book for free if you want to read about him. He was born in a log cabin. Thanks for the link
I simply wanted to thank you for this awesome legacy you are leaving for generations to come. I am trying to find my Civil war relatives which seems to be overwhelming as a beginner. It is refreshing and encouraging to find this kind of information.

John, just wanted to say thank you for the listing of my ancestor, Andrew Jackson Sowell. I was prompted to do an internet search for him after watching The Alamo on Starz yesterday, and after reading through the history listed on his page, realized that there is a scene in the movie that depicts AJ Sowell being sent off for reinforcements, just you stated!! The actor even looks like the picture of AJ Sowell you have posted. Thank you for all you have done for our country, and for continuing to contribute to educating us about our forefathers who have contributed to where we are today.
