Griffiths, Mrs Annie – 1918

Abergavenny Chronicle, 7th June 1918.


The death took place at her residence, quite suddenly on Sunday night, the 26th ult., at the age of 68, of Mrs. Annie Griffiths, Maesyberan, Goytre. Although the deceased had been ailing for some considerable time, her intimate friends had hoped that she would have recovered and been spared for some years. Warned by her medical attendant, Dr. Foley, she knew for some time before death that the end was at hand, but she faced it with composure. When only 19 years of age deceased went to an aunt in America and entered different business establishments whilst there, until. owing to leading a too strenuous life, her health gave way. Her medical advisers recommended her to return to the old country, where she quickly recuperated. The business knowledge she acquired abroad had a great fascination for her, and being a very strong-willed lady she embarked upon various business enterprises, which she conducted most successfully. The deceased lady was born at The Duffryn Farm, being the second daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Morgan, Cwm Farm, Govilon.
