J. K. Griffith was born near Cynthiana, Harrison County, Kentucky, February 22, 1863.  He spent his boyhood there on the Kentucky farm, and received his early education at a private school in Cynthiana.  He afterwards went to Chickering Institute, Cincinnati, and then entered Yale, graduating with the degree of A.

B. in 1888.  He was admitted to the bar in Ohio, then in Kentucky, and came to Kansas City for a permanent residence in the fall of 1888.  He was admitted to practice here early in 1889, and entered the office of Scarritt & Scarritt.  In 1895 the firm of Scarritt, Griffith, & Jones was formed.
