Biography

Lida (Ward) Griffin was a Hoosier.

The first record of Lida (Ward) Griffin is when she appeared in the 1860 census, at the age of 4, living in the household of John & Matilda Jackson. Her parents are unknown. One theory is that she was given the surname of Ward because she was a ward of the court.

On Lida's death certificate, her daughter, Belle Brown, was the informant. Belle gave her father's parents as Lida's parents. This may have been because Belle had always been told that Lida didn't know her parents' names.
