Silas & Ward’s core values lie in legacy and family. When Frederick was a child, he heard stories about his great-grandfather, Silas Griffin, and how he fought in the Civil War. In 1864, he joined the 55th regiment of the United States Colored Infantry. It made his family proud for Silas to be a soldier during that time, fighting to end slavery and winning recognition at the African American Civil War Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
His son, Ward, Frederick’s grandfather, often told stories about how to be independent. He once said, “It’s better to own a popcorn stand than to work for any man.”
His encouragement and principles carried through Edward Griffin, Frederick’s father, who, along with JoAnn Griffin’s father, served as paratroopers with the 82nd Airborne. Financial independence and living with dignity were values well-impressed upon Frederick and JoAnn.
Silas & Ward Financial Group bears their names because we believe that each of our clients should have financial literacy, the power to make their own decisions, the ability to live a full life, and the chance to pass on their legacy to generations to come.
Silas & Ward Financial Group supports several charities, both in the local D.C. area and beyond. Help us help our community by learning more at the links below.
