JONES, GRIFFIN, WILSON - T. Jim Wilson
February 17, 1998
I have about exhausted my search in Lawrence County, I am at this time
running a newspaper ad in the surrounding areas. In as much as you are
an adjoining county, I was hoping if you would post this in your county,
maybe, just maybe, some one there would have information for my search.

I am searching for my Grandfather and Grandmother. My Grandfather,
George Wesley Wilson and Grandmother, Ora Kinear Crawford Wilson, were
residing in Newcastle in the era of 1909 and 1910. While there they
adopted my father Ernest Lewis Griffin B: 12/29/1910, Lead, SD. The
adoption process was done in South Dakota.

I have found my Grandfather was Tom Jones, and my Grandmother, Rose
Griffin. I however have not been able to find any of my (their),
relatives. I surely would like to establish contact with them and was
hoping you would post this on your site. Maybe, just maybe, some one
there would have some information.

The following is information I have obtained to this date:
I am seeking information on my family from the 1910 era, in Lead,
Lawrence County, SD.

would appreciate it!
