Obituary of Peter W. Griffin, Louisiana.

Peter Griffin was born near what is now the little town of Alice, in west Feliciana Parish, La., August 1, 1845 and died near the place of his birth on August 14, 1919. He enlisted in Company I, 3d Louisiana Cavalry, early in 1863 and gave his whole time to the service of the Confederacy until paroled at Gainesville, Ala., in 1865.

Comrade Griffin was never robust, but lived out something over his threescore and ten, and died in the faith of a life beyond this. He was a member of the Methodist Epsicopal Church, South. He was twice married, his first wife being a Miss Thom, who left him one son. A few years later he married another Miss Thom, who also proceeded him in to the grave. Four sons, a daughter, and two brothers survive him.

[W.R. Campbell, Rogillioville, La.]
