Subject: Mary Griffen Munsell family history...from g.g. granddaughter
I have been working on my families genealogy and think I can help with the Mary Griffen lineage.
I am "Mary Elizabeth Griffen Butler Munsell's" great, great Granddaughter. See Mary's first marriage was to my great, great grandfather, William A. Butler and it produced my great-grandfather, Oscar Leroy Butler. They were divorced and Mary married Lewis B. Munsell (b. Oct 1848)...they had 3 children Earl Lewis Munsell (died in his mid-20s), Walter E. Munsell (b. Sept. 13, 1899 and d. Mar 1980), and Leslie Munsell (died as a baby).
Mary was born on May 26, 1859 in West Stockbridge, MA and her parents names were PHIL C. Griffen and Almura E. Gould. Mary died in Apr 5, 1939.
I should have more info. down the road as I have personally met one of Walter E. Munsell's sons, Richard Munsell.
Look forward to hearing of any information you might be able to share with me too.
