RE: Emory Griswold
Hi Cousin Martha, I am happy to help. Last year I was able to locate your mother and had given her quite a lot of material about your father and extensive Griswold family information. I hope she shared this with you. Did you find this connection that way or just a lucky find? At any rate, I have posted an additional photo of Emory in the military on his memorial. Despite what it says there about his remains, that is no longer the case. After seeing that he was "unclaimed" I had his remains shipped to me. My brother and I had made plans to scatter his ashes --probably on Mt Hood--sometime this summer.
Now that you have contacted me, I would be very happy to hand the ashes over to you if you like. Also, please go to the memorial and request that it be transferred to your management as his daughter. The person who created it declined my request and of course I have no power (as his niece) to compel that. Once you have management, you can add bio information and correct the posting about his ashes after that has been settled.
Do write back to me and let me know your wishes. Also my family has been working on a large family history project and if you would like to see the collection, we would welcome you to join. I would want to connect you to my brother Tim who is maintaining the archive so that he can give you access.
