M. V. U. Griffey Dead.
Martin Vm Karen Griffey, a fa
miliar figure in our midst and one of
the few remaining types of pioneer
manhood, died at his home in the
lower bottom, Saturday, after a
short illness of pneumonia. Despite
his 72 years, ie was active until
death, but his advanced years made
him an easy victim of pneumonia.
Mr. Griffey had for a number of
years looked after Hon. R. T. Ty.
ler's plantation, near Sassafras
Ridge. He came here from Hick
man county about 189S. Previous
to his coming here, he was engaged
In business in Clinton, but owing to
his hearing becoming defective, re
tired from commercial activities
Since then he has been managing the
Tyler plantation, and was a splendid
overseer. He was held in high es
teem by our people, and was recog
nized as one of the staunch and
trusted men of this county.
Deceased was born and reared on
the old Levi farm, near Moscow,
and according to his request, was
buried in the family burying grounds
there Sunday. Of a family of nine
children six brothers and three
sisters all are now dead. He is
survived by one son, Marthenylrif
fey, who resides in the same neigh
borhood. Mr Griffey was a member of the
Christian church, and was one of
those plain, sensible, honest men,
never fail to command the love and
who respect of his fellow man. He
was firm and true in his friendships,
and will be missed among his larg;
circle of friends.
Thus ends a long, useful career.
Peace to his soul.
