Bio and Links
Bio Photo I concentrate my efforts exclusively on my own Family or extended Family. My family lineage is both English and Cherokee Indian. Our family includes (but is not limited to) the following families, with an emphasis on the Griffin line (my father) and the Moss line (my mother). Carver, Clark, Comolli, Denny, Griffin, Harris, Hays, Headrick, Moss, Oliver, Preston, Ryder/Rider, Whitworth

My family is spread out coast to coast with the majority of the Griffins being in the Tennessee or Texas area and the majority of the Moss family in Missouri and Oklahoma. My goal is to provide accurate details and a caring memorial when information is known about the deceased. My Carver roots have been traced back beyond the Mayflower, and the first settlement at Plymouth governed by my distant relative, John Carver.

Before his death, my father, Marlin Eldes Griffin, Sr., was the first Griffin family genealogist. That was in the days before computers and most of the records he accumulated were from personal family interviews, long distance phone calls, handwritten letters, family bibles, and searching cemeteries.

With the help of his cousin, Joan Robertson Cross, all of Dad's genealogical work was later published in book form by Anundsen Publishing in 1987. It is sad that Dad died before seeing the published book. But Joan promised him before his death that she would do it and she kept her promise. Now that Joan is no longer able to work on the family history, due to poor health, I'm working on it.

Mary Ann Jackson Case
I received your message through Find a Grave to my personal e-mail. Mary Ann Jackson Case would have been a sister in law to my 3RD Great Grandfather, William Case, Jr., a brother to her husband Thomas. I've transferred her memorial to you. -Brad Melton

RE: So sorry for your loss
Thank you! What a kind message you left me. I'm sorry for your loss as well. No one has ever said those words to me and it is great advice. Life goes on but it's a different life now. I will add a 4th: there is no time limit on grieving.

God Bless You - Sharon

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ❤️😊

RE: M E Griffin
Thank you so much. I know from his letters that he must have done extensive research for the Griffin family. I hope someone is preserving it. I have a picture but am not sure if she is one of the ladies in it or not.
