Ed Griffin, 1876-1946, Dummer, New Hampshire

Damaged tintype of Great-uncle Ed Griffin (then known as Clarence Edward Swan).

 

My late Cousin Rachel Holt Jewett (principal author of the "History of Dummer, New Hampshire" and founder of the Dummer, New Hampshire Historical Society) said Ed was born Clarence Edward Swan. Rachel said that New Hampshire State Records tell us that a Dennis Swan was Rose Ella Andrew's first husband. When Rose Ella married her second husband, James Albert Griffin, Clarence Edward Swan's name was changed to Edward Clarence Griffin.

 

Note under the chair we see the base of a neck brace to keep Ed still for the photographer.
