Joseph Willard Griffiths

Circumstantial evidence from emigration, census, newspaper, church records proves the Griffiths family traveled to Utah in 1850. Our birth date for Joseph is from his death certificate, the 1900 Utah census and the fact that he was one year old at the time of the 1850 Utah census which was actually taken early in 1851.
