Griffith Brothers

Please I need help in locating census pages with John H. Griffith and his brother Edmond G. Griffith. I am sure you have all come up against an ancestor whose time frame is those darn missing 1890 census pages.

John H. Griffith was born Jan 1, 1861. At least that is what his tomb stone says. He married Julia Ann Elizabeth Foster, daughter of John W. Foster and Hannah Levanny Eaves. Julia was born in Winston, Co. MS and moved to Bienville/Natchitoches Parish around 1880. We figure that she married John sometime around 1882.

John died of a heart attack in 1898 in Castor, Bienville Parish La. Julia married John's brother Edmond G. Griffith in Natchitoches Parish about 1902/3. Edmond G. was born ca. 1867.

While I have found Julia and Edmond on the 1910 and 1920 censuses, I have not been able to find John and Edmond or their parents. John would be 9 on the 1870 census and Edmond would be just about 3. On the 1880 census John would be 19 and Edmond would be 12 or 13.

Julia lists her children's father as being born in MS. It is possible that the brothers were born in Arkansas, MS, Texas, or Louisiana.

Will you please keep a watch for these brothers when you are doing research. Some have said that John was John Henry Griffith and Edmond was Edmond Green Griffith. I have no clue who their parents may have been.

Thank you for any help,
Terry
