  • Notes 
    • What brought Henry to San Francisco so briefly c. 1884? How did he meet Mary Culbert? Where and when did Henry die, and where was he buried? He was not found in Oregon Death Index, 1903-1950.

      1880 Federal Census - Henry not found in Heritage Quest search. There was only one Henry b.c. 1850, Iowa, and he was a married farmer with family in Monroe Co., Iowa. There is a possible candidate age 29, b. Massachusetts in Geneseo, Tama Co., Iowa.

      1881 & 1885 San Francisco City Directories - Henry not found.

      1880-1900 Portland City Directories checked at Oregon Historical Society
      What follows is uncertain:
      1888, R.L. Polk & Co., p. 272, "Griffin, H, lab WSML & M Co., res. E.P. [East Portland]"
    • Henry Griffin was arrested last night for stirring up a mild sensation on the East Side. He was very drunk and had gone home and started to attack the whole family. He lives at 33 East Eighth street and his wife promptly telephoned for the police. [19]
    • PORTLAND, Jan 5. (To the Editor) Will you please correct the statement in the Sunday (sic) paper that the wife of Henry Griffin had him arrested for abusing his family. There was no family trouble, only some of the neighbors had a little too long tongues. If some of them would only tend a little more to their own affairs there would not be so much mischief in this world. Mr. Griffin is a kind husband to his wife and children, and he always gives his day's wages to his wife without her asking for them. MRS. HENRY GRIFFIN.
