Note

Albert inherited the family farm in Huron Co but evidently decided to move to Sault Ste MI in the US in 1891. He married Isabella Hood Madill, a widow, and raised his family there. He was listed as a carpenter with his family in the 1900,1910 and1920 censuses in Sault Ste but Isabella was listed as a widow in the 1930 census. His death date was given by relatives of his brother Thomas in ND. [Note: I am sure that the Albert Griffin of Sault Sainte is the same Albert, son of Thomas and Jane because the various corresponding facts such as name of father and mother, birth year and month, born in Huron Co ONT, immigration date in US corresponds to his disappearance from Huron records, and the fact he died about 1930 as family recordshad indicated.]
