FAMILY ANCESTRY: For almost a quarter of a century, Bill has been researching his family tree. He has traced the family name Griggs all the way back to England in 1436. He has some famous early relatives: One was a signer of the Declaration Of Independence, almost a dozen who fought in the American Revolution, three that founded American towns that still exist today, One who founded a boy's school that eventually became the University Of Pittsburgh, one who was the oldest still-practicing doctor when he died, two U.S. Senators, one who owned two railways and built a town that bares his name, and much more. The Griggs Mansion is Minnesota's most famous haunted house! As the librarian of the thousands of family pictures taken through the years, all of this keeps him very busy.
