The daughter of Mary Irene Cantwell
Thompson. Her mother, Myrtle Jane Calton Cantwell attended Byford School as
well as many Aunts, Cousins, and Uncles. My Great-father was G.E. Calton and
my Great-great-grandfather was Charles L. Griffin. They both owned general
stores in McGee and Stratford.
Charlie Griffin, William Calton, Myrtle Calton, Mary Ann Griffin

all relatives of mine. Charlie Griffin is one of the children of Z.Y. (Yoke)
Griffin who owned several businesses in McGee. Charlie was orphaned along
with 5 other Griffin children when his father was shot by Dr. Norris on June
7, 1905. The children were raised by my Great-great-grandfather, Charles Lot
Griffin. C.L. Griffin was the Justice of the Peace in McGee and also served as postmaster.
This submission is dedicated to my Mom, Mary
Irene Cantwell Thompson, and to my Grannie, Mary Ann Griffin Calton
and her husband, George E. Calton, as well as her,
Mary Ann's, father and mother, C.L. Griffin and Margaret Walker Griffin.
