The Griffin family
traces back to 1630 when William Griffin was born in England and in 1638 arrived in Virginia. Around 1880 James William Henry Griffin, his sister Cora Griffin, and his brother W. N. “Muggs” Griffin moved to Madison County, Texas. James William Henry had 16 children.
  In our family line this group is referred to as
“The 16”.

During the last few year Ila Moody, daughter of Mary Ethel Griffin (one of “The 16”) collaborated with others in the family to put together a photo album based off  “The 16” and their families. Being the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of one of  “The 16” we were fortunately able to contribute a small portion to the information collected. We must thank Ila for graciously allowing us to present this tribute to our branch of the Griffin tree. 
We hope you enjoy
