  • Hi,

    I am searching for the marriage of Edward Griffin and Agnes Rose Dorrian. They were the parents of my GM Agnes Griffin (Griffith) married to Michael Brogan (1908) Mt Charles.

  • Jason,

    Looking forward to hearing from you. I see that you are from the Marg Dorrian/John Harley line. She was a sister to my GGM Rose Dorrian/Griffith/Griffin. That is about all I know of the family.
