E-mail from Martha Hansen:
Dear Sandy,
I have a lot of info on the pilchers. We will have to compare and share.
As for Walter Lee Griffith, his father's name was Walter O. Griffith. I have a feeling that the O. is for Oscar. Walter Lee had a son (my Uncle) whose name was Herbert Oscar Griffith.

Walter married Emma Elmira SMALLWOOD, daughter of Elisha SMALLWOOD and Mary Margaret MOORE, on 20 Nov 1890. Emma was born on 25 Feb 1872 in Vernon County, Missouri. She died on 8 May 1945 in Nevada, Vernon, Missouri.
