    Griffin Smith 1854-1940
    Griffin Smith 1854-1940
    Photo is of Griffin Smith (1854-1940), son of Isaiah Smith Jr (1816-1884) and Amelia Hathcock (1824-1892), and his wife Memphis Meridian "Reddy" Williams (1865-1958). This photo is floating around on Ancestry and other websites and some people are claiming this to be Isaiah Jr and Amelia, but this is actually a photo of their son Griffin Smith and his wife Memphis Meridian "Reddy" Williams. So the people claiming that this is a photo of Isaiah Jr and Amelia are confusing them with their son Griffin and his wife Memphis Meridian "Reddy" Williams.
