(Obit of Capt. Fred W. Griffith - In the death of Capt. Fred Griffith, which
occurred in New York City on Saturday, Jan. 15, 1876, at the residence of
Col. Alfred Dunham, the community sustained the loss of a persevering,
honorable and faithful young man. In many respects the brief story of young
Griffith's life is worthy of imitation. He was born a little more than 23
years ago and passed his youth at the residence of his father, Mr. Nelson
Griffith, on the shore of the lake (Chautauqua) and a few miles from the
city (Jamestown). The rediments of his education were gained at the district
school near his home. He was also a student in the U.S. & C. I. for a
number of years and was faithful in the performance of his duties as a
scholar. At the conclusion of his school-days he equipped and managed a
fleet of boats at Griffith's Point, which had become by that time a popular
resort. His second business venture was in the purchase of the steamer P.J.
Hanour, which was destroyed by fire in the fall of '74. With the
perseverance which was a distinguisthing trait of his character, he set
about building a better boat, and the steamer M. A. Griffith was the result
of this determination. He commanded the boat during the last busy season,
and his dangerous, and finally fatal illness commenced just as that season
was brought to a close. Upon his partial recovery, he threw himself with
renewed energy into the work of re-building the Griffith, which had been
half consumed during his sickness. His recovery, it seems, was so only in
name, for ulceration of the bowels had commenced long before he left home
for New York and his death was certain, and probably not accelerated by the
journey. Prominently identified with the interests of our lake, as he had
always been, his list of acquaintances was large, and those who knew him
once, became his friends ever after--attracted to him by the uniform
kindness and courtesy of his manner. There was certainly something in the
life of Captain Griffith to command our respect. Good habits, perseverance,
faithfulness, strict honor and a uniformly kind manner are traits of
character worthy of imitation, of commendation, of respect.)

Griffith, Samuel (3). b. May 8, 1791 Rensselaer, New York. d. Feb. 7, 1876
at Griffith's Point, Town of Ellery. Age 80/7/2. s/o Jeremiah (2) and Mary
(Crapsey) Griffith. Samuel (3), Jeremiah (2), Seth (1) Griffith. m. May 29,
1813 (first wedding on record in Fluvanna) Elsie Simmons. (In memorial
newspaper clipping. Samuel Griffith, the subject of the following memoir
was the son of Jeremiah and Mary Crapsey Griffith. He was born in Renssalear
Co., N.Y. May 1791. In 1800 he moved with his parents and their family to
Madison Co. In 1806 after a long and tedious journey of several days they
arrived at Mayville, at the head of Chautauqua Lake, where they found one
resident by the name of MacEntyre. Soon after the family consisting of
Jeremiah and wife and their five sons, and one daughter, located a home near
what is now known as Griffith's Point. Many obstacles presented themselves
to the hardy pioneers. With the resolute determination which rises above all
opposition they strove to accomplish that for which they entered the forests
of Chautauqua - a home. Obtaining possession of a large and fertile tract of
land Mr. Griffith established his sons around him on good farms. Samuel
Griffith was married to Elsy Simmons, May 29, 1813, and settled on the farm
where he lived and died. They had four children. His sickness was for only
four hours. The evening before his death he was around in apparently
perfect health; was at the barn and assisted in feeding and stabling the
cattle as usual. Got in his wood and arranged for lighting the fire as he
was accustomed to upon the following morning. He awoke about 2 a.m. with a
shortness of breath, and an oppression in the chest which continued until
his death, at fifteen minutes to five. He was conscious to the very last,
talked with his family and gave the encouraging evidence of a life fully
ripe for the harvest. Almost his last words were "I'm ready to go, why
detain me longer." He died at the ripe age of 84 years, nine months. In the
death of Samuel Griffith, or as he is more familiarly known, "Uncle Sam,"
the communtiy has met with an irreparable loss. He was always a great
reader, keeping himself well posted upon all the current events of the day.
He possessed more knowledge of the early history of the settlement of
Chautauqua County, especially the southern portion than any other man now
living among us. Much of this he has left in a tangible shape for the
history of the Griffith family. He was President of that family reunion
which has been of so much interest to all desirous of perpetuating the
history of the early settlement of our country. In political life he was,
during the existence of the Whig party, a staunch defender of their
principles. He was enthusiastic in the campaign when log cabin and hard
cider prevailed, as well as the cheering songs of "Tipecanoe and Tyler too,"
re-echoed from every hill top. He was of the leaders of that party in his
town. Upon the rise of the Republican party, he at a glance took in its
sterling principles and adopted them. He was one of those few people who
knew how to grow old.
