Hi Bill, Alan, and George -
no problem using the webpage/URL on Wm. W. Durr as y'all see fit; please go ahead!
There is one family story that Durr's uncle (my gg-grandpa) Samuel Acass "Cass" Griffith may have served during the Mexican War. Timewise, this would have happened while he was living in Lauderdale County MS.
So far, I have not been able to find any documentation re this. Is it possible that he might have served in some militia there in Lauderdale County before his family moved to NW Arkansas...????
thanks once again!!
