Griffith manservant killing Lyon...??
In Response To: Re: Article re manservant at Wilson's Creek battle ()
Hi Bennie -
I'm with you; it is hard to believe that Capt. John Griffith's manservant (likely Dan Griffith) shot General Lyon. The facts don't add up.
I received an email a few years ago from a likely descendant of Dan Griffith. According to him, the family changed their surname to "Griffin". I have not heard back from this fellow and not received any additional info re Dan Griffith or his descendants.
Would be interesting for someone to write a screenplay for Dan Griffith and his life; Confederate manservant to Reconstruction Justice of the Peace.....
