George W. Griffith, a native of Pennsylvania, was born June 12, 1826. He received his education in the State of his birth, and, on leaving school, learned the wagon-maker’s trade, at which he worked for three years. He then took up the trade of mill-wright and worked thereat five years. Next he engaged in the saw-mill business, continuing in that line until 1862, when he began farming. Mr. Griffith moved to Missouri in April, 1866, and located first at Chillicothe, Livingston county, where he remained until the spring of 1867, when he came to this county, and has lived here ever since, engaged in farming. He owns a good farm of 152 acres of land in Lincoln township, on which he and his family reside at this writing.

Mr. Griffith was married, in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, December 14, 1853, to Miss Sarah Shultz. Thirteen children were born of this union, nine of whom are still living.
