GRIFFIN, Ebenezer, lawyer, born in Cherry Valley, New York, 29 July, 1789; died in Rochester, New York When he was quite young his father removed to Clinton, Oneida County, where the boy received his preparatory education. He entered Union College, but, before completing his course, began the study of law, and was admitted to the bar at Utica in 1811. He engaged in practice in Clinton, where he remained for eight years, and afterward removed to Utica, but in 1825 went to New York City. Among the many important cases in which he was employed as counsel was that of Mather, who was charged with being a conspirator in the abduction of Morgan. Mr. Griffin was retained to conduct the defence, which he did so ably that Mather was acquitted, notwithstanding the state of public feel-rag. Mr. Griffin continued to practise in New York until 1842, and then removed to Rochester, where he remained until his death.
