JAMES A. GRIFFITH, proprietor of Ayrshire Farm, in Sherman Township, was born on his present farm Nov. 1, 1880, son of Leonard, Jr., and Amelia (Reible) Griffith. He was educated in the district school and at Loyal high school, growing to manhood on his parents' farm, which came into his possession fifteen years ago, and he now farms 120 acres. In the spring of 1904 Mr. Griffith began raising pure blooded Ayrshire cattle, buying two heifers and one bull calf, and in 1906 he imported a cow and a bull from Canada, and also a heifer calf. Considered one of the best herd of cattle in the township.  From that beginning the herd has grown to about thirty-five head. The Ayrshires are a hardy breed of cattle, easy to keep, and will forage better for themselves than most other breeds. Mr. Griffith also raises good grades of other stock, and is doing a prosperous business.
