Alexander Viets Griswold1,2

b. 22 April 1766, d. 15 February 1843
     Alexander Viets Griswold was born on 22 April 1766. He was the son of Elisha Griswold and Eunice Viets. Alexander Viets Griswold was baptized on 25 May 1766.

Dorothy Viets Schell quotes the Dictionary of American Biography:

". . . Alexander's early years were spent on his father's farm, but when he was ten years old, since he displayed more interest in books than in agriculture, his uncle, Roger Viets, then rector of the Simsbury parish, took him into his own home. He now assisted in the cultivation of the parish glebe, but had the advantage of his knowledge of the classics and mathematics besides much general information. The impoverishment of his father who endeavored to remain neutral during the Revolution, the removal of his Loyalist uncle to Nova Scotia after the war, and his own early marriage to seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Mitchelson in 1785, prevented him from entering Yale as he had planned. Until he was twenty-eight years old he cultivated a small farm, and read law though without expectation of practising it. Persuaded by his friends who believed his character and abilities fitted him for the ministry, in 1794 he offered himself as a candidate for orders. In 1795 he was made deacon, and alter i the same year was ordained priest by Bishop Seabury at Plymouth, Conn. For ten years (1794-1804) he served a the same time the churches in Plymouth, Harwinton, and Northfield, eking out his small salary by farming and teaching. In 1804 he became rector of St. Michael's Church, Bristol, R. I. He was elected bishop of the Eastern diocese May 31, 1810, and was consecrated at Trinity Church, New York, may 29, 1811. He continued to serve as rector at Bristol until 1830 when he took charge of St. Peter's Church, Salem, Mass., and it was not until five years later that he devoted himself wholly to his episcopal work.

Ezra Griswold1,2,3

b. 6 December 1767, d. 22 October 1822
The Griswold Inn ca. 1910 is shown in this picture. The inn, extant until 1964, was built in 1811 on the north-east Village Green by Worthington pioneer Ezra Griswold. Its location near the intersection of Granville Road (Rt. 161) and High Street (Rt. 23) made it a popular stopping place for travelers. The Inn featured a fireplace in every room and a large second floor ballroom that was eventually converted to bedrooms when the Inn reverted to a family residence. The building was razed in 1964 despite community efforts to save it. Photo courtesy of Scott Gowans.
     Ezra Griswold was born on 6 December 1767 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.4 He was the son of Elisha Griswold and Eunice Viets. Ezra Griswold married Ruth Roberts, daughter of Lemuel Roberts Jr. and Ruth Woodford, on 8 November 1789 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.5,4 Ezra Griswold died on 22 October 1822 at Worthington, Franklin Co., OH, at age 54.5 He was buried at Saint John's Cemetery, Worthington, Franklin Co., OH.4

The family moved from Tariffville to Worthington, Ohio, in 1803, joining with a friend's plans for emigration to Ohio under the Scioto Company's agreement. The place where they settled was an unbroken wilderness, in which they were the first white settlers. Ezra was a devoted adherent of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Although he had never received a liberal education, he was, with the aid of his excellent mother, manly self-taught. He was admirably qualified for public employment, but was of a retiring domestic nature, and was never called to any higher office than that of justice of the peace in which capacity he served for many years. During the scarcity of money in circulation after the war of 1812, Ezra Griswold is known to have issued two series of paper money or notes.6
