William M Griffis Will, Overton Co. TN 1848
Posted by: Russell Windle (ID *****6868) Date: December 30, 2008 at 09:48:28
  of 822

I was at the library yesterday doing some research in Overton Co. TN. I ran across a will for William M Griffis. In the will two of the beneficiaries are James Alfred Henderson Windell and William Windell. The will was proven in 1848 a year after William Griffis' death. William died in Henderson TX according to the Rusk Co. probate records.

Does anyone have any information on these two Windells. William Griffis lists them as his sons, I figure they are his stepsons.

The Griffis family and John A Windle's family go back to TN. After John William's (My Great Great Grandfather) death some members of the Griffis family is shown living with Lucinda Willis Windle (John William's widow) on the 1870 Census for Fannin Co. Mrs. A M Griffis made an affidavit for Lucinda's widows pension.

My Great Grandfather John Pressley Windle was partner in a store on the square in Bonham named Griffis, Owen, and Windle.
