The Washington Post - December 28, 1942

Howard Griffith, 63, postmaster at Silver Spring, Md., for the last eight years and a member of one of Montgomery County's oldest families, died unexpectedly of a heart attack early yesterday at his home at 1010 Noyes Drive, Silver Spring.

Born in Beallsville, Md., Mr. Griffith was the son of the late Charles G. and Caroline H. Griffith. He was a farmer for a number of years and at the time of his death owned two large farms in the upper part of Mongomery County.

Mr. Griffith came to Silver Spring with his family 22 years ago and established the Griffith & Perry Coal Co., serving as its president for 11 years. He was appointed postmaster at Silver Spring in 1934. During his administration the office has advanced from second to first class.

He was active in civic and welfare work and was a member of the Silver Spring Board of Trade and other organizations.

Besides his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Perry Griffith, he is survived by five daughters; Mrs. Blanche Clark of Chevy Chase, Miss Rebecca Griffith of Baltimore, Mrs. Margaret Livingston and Mrs. Mabel Gamble of Silver Spring, and Mrs. Ann Kephart of Morehead City, N.C., and three sons, Pvt. Charles Howard Griffith, who is attending Officers Candidate School at Fort McClellan, Ala. and Lt. Thomas Perry Griffith, and Staff Sergt. William B. Griffith, both on foreign duty.

Also surviving are five sisters, Mrs. Harriet G. Bastable, Mrs. Clifton Veirs and Mrs. Magruder Veirs, all of Rockville, and Mrs. Charles Sellman and Mrs. Frank Davis, both of Poolesville, Md.; a brother, Hempstone Griffith, also of Rockville and six grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Warner E. Pumphrey funeral home, 8434 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, with burial in Monocacy Cemetery at Beallsville.
