Hi, my name is Rick Griffin and my Great Grandfather was John Wallingford Griffin. I've always thought this to be wierd for a middle name, last week I was doing other genealogy and I thought maybe its a maiden name.So here I am in the Wallingford site. He was born in Newtonard County Down Ireland in 1841. Came to San Francisco and had 6 children from 1872 to 1888. He married Ellen Curran from Waterford County Ireland.He died in Oakland, California in 1898. Any information would be appreciated.
