1.Amos1 Griffith, Jr. was born July 1820 in , , Kentucky, and died Bet. 1900 - 1903. He married Mariah T.
McCardee July 24, 1846 in , Pike Co., Missouri. She was born Abt. 1821 in , , Missouri, and died Bef. 1880.


Notes for Amos Gri ffith, Jr.:


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----


Amos father "might have been" Amos which is also on the 1850 Pike Co. Missouri census. I have not found
any documents to prove who his parents were. From records A mos came to Oregon between 1850 census
which was taken in Oct. and the 1853 Washington County Oregon census.


Apparently there was something wrong with Maria. She is listed on the 1860 census as "Insane". I think in
the 1870 census she is in the insane asylum in Portland, Oregon. It appears in the 1860 cenus all of Amos
and Maria's children are living with other families in the county. Some of them come bac k home after
Maria left. Looks like some didn't.


Hard to tell which of the Griffith's children in t he 1860 census was A mos or maybe some one else child.
Some of the children I could find after these census a nd some I could not. They could have went by initials
or by their middle name. The William A, and W. B. or William B. seem to be the same person.


Could not find Amos in the Oregon Death Index. He apparently died before it began in 1903.


Also appears some researchers have this A mos Griffith and another Amos Griffith, both coming from Pike
Co. Missouri mixed up. This Amos did not marry Susan Doak. The other Amos did not marry "Marsha
(Mariah or Maria) McCardee or McCarder, her name was misspelled. Marriage records has her name as
"Mariah T. McCardee". (clp)
