Samuel Arvin McGriff, Sr. Born Dec. 2, 1878 in Florida. He was a gggrandson of Col. Patrick McGriff. He died in an automobile accident July 26, 1925 in Atlanta, Ga. He was married to Francis G. McDaniel. Both are buried in Columbia, Ala. From his grandson Ray McGriff,'...The story I was told all of my life is that he had a friend from somewhere up North visiting and they left after church to ride out into the countryside to look at land and animals. All of the roads were dirt and very narrow at that time. As they topped a rise a horse-drawn wagon was in the road and the friend that was driving had no place to go but the ditch...'
