Family of Patison Delos & Elizabeth Carson Griffeth

Back: L.-R: Urmina Griffeth (Hyde), Louisa Griffeth (Seamon), Marinda Griffeth (McOmber, Clark), Lovina Griffeth (Thurman), Mary Griffeth (Hyde). Front: L-R: Patison D. Griffeth (Father) with his wife Elizabeth C. Griffeth, Phoebe Griffeth Hyde, and George Andrew Griffeth. The names of the children not shown from Sarah are: Sarah, William, Charles, Susan, Eleanor, Edgar, Ancil, Eva, and Ina. Sarah was his second wife and their family lived in Fairview, Idaho. They were the first white settlers there. Due to U.S. marshal raids on polygamist families, Patison took Sarah to Idaho and Star Valley, Wyoming, where they became the very first settlers and pioneered the areas. It was a good cold place to get out of reach from the marshals.
