GRIGGS; CARROLL, CALLAHAN:  I have a Souvenir from the School distrist No, 3 Cedar Township Cedar County, Missouri 1897-'98 presented by Cora Thompson, teacher Board J.T. Quaries John Spies,Geo. S.

My question about this is : The 3 GRIGGS girls
Bertha GRIGGS b Oct 1887
Gail GRIGGS b Mar 1892
Leona GRIGGS b Dec 1889 (my ggrandmother) The girls were all born in Wynnewood, Oklahoma then Indian Territory.  Their mother Mary Alice 'Mollie' CARROLL GRIGGS d @ 1893 in Wynnewood. When their mother died they were shipped off to relatives. This is the first evidence I have found out where they were until at least the 1900 census where I found them once again with their father & new step-mother. (their father then died in June 1900 & once again they were shipped off to relatives) After their father died the girls all became seperated and really never saw each other again.  My ggrandmother didn't like to talk about the years after her mother died. She did say they went to live with an aunt Julia CARROLL CALLAHAN (husbands 1st name unknown) Any help of finding who the relative was would be a big piece of information. I hope you all enjoyed the class roster above and found someone you were missing.
