Anthony Griffin [TMSI #50271]
Journal Republican (Wilmington, Ohio)
December 30, 1914
Anthony Griffin, an old-time resident of Wilmington, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas Merriweather, in Everett, Wash., Sunday, December 20, aged ninety-four years. He lived in Wilmington the greater part of his life, and the older people will remember him well. One of his tasks of his working days, and a thing in which he took a great deal of pride, was assisting in building the Cincinnati Wilmington and Zanesville Railroad, now the Zanesville Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad. There are two sons, John and D.D. living here, besides the daughter, Mrs. Merriweather in the state of Washington. He bade good bye to his old home here eight years ago, realizing that he possibly might never return. Funeral services were held at Everett and the body shipped to Wilmington, arriving here Sunday, December 27. It was taken to Washington C. H. Monday, and interred in the Catholic Cemetery there.
