Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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 have contributed, plus co-wrote for many vintage guitar books and articles in Vintage Guitar magazine about the subject. Plus a photographer, writer and historian, for the San Diego Reader. I will gladly transfer any of my bios to relatives or folks with a concerned interest. I, my wife Mary and our Dachshund "Timmy", reside in Vista, California. Thanks and best regards, John

Nelson Davis Porter
Hi, I just saw that you added a photo to Nelson Porter in Canada. I was wondering if you are related and where the photo was found. He was My fathers great uncle, brother of my dads grandmother. Thank you for adding that photo.

Hi JCat. One of my goals for the new year is to press the "Died On This Date" link on Find A Grave and learn about the people who came before us. I have been running into your work a lot and just wanted to say thank you for all you do! Happy New Year.

She Is The Same Person
Samuel Goldwyn, Violet, now known as Marilyn Morgan, opted to study acting and voice with 'Nance O'Neil'. In 1929 Warners signed the 16-year-old, who changed her name once again, this time to Marian Marsh.

You Had It Right, She Changed Her Name From Marilyn Morgan To Marian Marsh
