My great grandfather, William Bragg Griffith, was born somewhere in MS on 1/13/1870. His father, I believe, was Joe E. Griffith. I have no other information on him. His mother was Amanda Bragg b 1843 TN, the dau of Patience _?_ and William Bragg b 1795? TN. William Bragg Griffith's siblings were Louisa b 2/2/1866, Percy Wardell b 6/23/1867, Louis Leroy b 4/2/1871, twin Pickins Franklin b 4/2/1871, Minnie Griffith b 6/10/1872, and ?Harry Griffith 2/19/1874.
The 1st Census I have of this family was 1850 Rusk Co TX. William Bragg (Bill) Griffith married in Jones Co, TX 12/19/1888 to Mary Ella Moore.
He remarried about 1915 or 1916 after the death of Mary Ella Moore. He married a Jo _?_ (known as MamaJo) Bill was a farmer, rancher, and a postman.
Around 1930 he moved to Ranger, Eastland Co., TX as was buried there when he died in 1941.
Any one knowing this family, especially anything for Joe E. Griffith or Amanda Bragg, please contact me. Thank you.
