    1. hi, Pam. Sorry for the delay in response. Just getting back into the swing of things after my father died and this weekend, my dog has apparently slipped a disc and we’ve been dealing with him. You and I must be cousins of some sort (maybe in a few ways). My records show Matilda to be the sister of Joseph Griffith (who was married to Emma Moore). Emma Moore was the sister of my great grandfather, William Grant Moore. Several GRIFFITH women married into the HACKATHORN family. My grandmother was a Hackathorn. We should compare notes! I used to have a photo of Joseph Griffith on an old computer, but when it crashed, the file could not be recovered. You can also contact me at Look forward to hearing from you.
