  • Notes 
    • I have just started researching my family tree and I came across your entries on wordconnect website. My great grandmother was Mary Healey Griffin and my grandfather was Michael Griffin. I have been having a hard time researching this side of my family b/c my grandfather was a very quiet man that never spoke much about the past. I was shocked to see that the information you posted matches mine in many aspects. I wanted to introduce myself and see how you are related to my ancestors.

      I do know quite a bit about my tree, which is located on ancestry.com. No sure if you are able to access it, this is all very new to me. Any resources that you use that might help me would be greatly appreciated. I do know that Peter Griffin died 6/23/1917 in Meriden, Connecticut. Can you tell me how you found out the date they married? I requested his death certificate from the City of Meriden, and I am hoping it shows the names of his parents (like the death certificates I received for my other great grandparents). I also know that Peter and Mary Healey are buried in Calvary Cemetery in Waterbury. They are in separate plots; Mary is buried with her daughter Kathleen (aka Catherine) and her husband Christopher W Collins.

      My uncle tells me that the Griffins were from Northern Ireland but I have yet to confirm that. I am working with little family history from that side of my family, most of the information I received is from the Census. He only appears in 1900 & 1910, but I am able to locate my great grandmother and grandfather in 1920 & 1930. My grandfather?s birth certificate has very little information on it. I have some pictures that are not labeled; my uncle seems to think that they are from the Griffin side. I need to get a scanner and add them to my tree. I have narrowed the ship records down by information I do know, he may have arrived in late 1891 from Liverpool at around age 20. Another thing my uncle told me was that he was educated, maybe some type of a teacher, in Ireland but was a general laborer here in Waterbury who died of TB.

      Got the death certificate for Peter Griffin. Shows his parents as Patrick & Bridget Griffin both born in Ireland. Let me know if come across them in any of your research.
