Other information from submitter:
listed on his dc is John Griffiths, this was his paternal grandfather.  The death certificate # is unreadable.  But might be obtained on the OHS site.

Moriah is a church that is located just outside Oak Hill Jackson Co OH.  Oak Hill would have been the post office used.  Moriah was a welsh congregated church adjacent to the Griffiths farm.  Land was given to begin this church/cemetery by my husband's Edwards/Griffiths lines.  Many of his family are buried there beginning with the immigrants and most of his lines as well as the head of the Cincinnati line Edward/Hannah Catherine (nee Price) Griffiths.  Oak Hill cemetery is in Oak Hill itself.
