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

Re: A. Beverly
All messages from "A. Beverly" or similar sounding name is actually banned nemesis Josh Rumage attempting to wreak havoc with unverified info (we do not accept anything from banned members).

Thank you,

Joseph was my 4th great Grandfather. Thank you for doing such a beautiful job on his memorial. I just thought I should add that James Durst sold Carmelita "160" acres for his affection and $1.00. I have the original deed. Thank goodness the members of my family were packrats!! ;0) Serena Keech
