The below information from descendant of Craver family, Robert "Bob" Craver:
I believe James Craver is my Grandfather Elmer Craver's brother. Their mother died in 1884 and their father died in 1886. The were born in Somerset Co, PA. Have not been able to find out who raised them after their parents death. Would like to know when James moved to Georgia.
James's father name is spelled Lewis, not Louis as in the census. Lewis born 6 Jun 1848, died 29 Aug 1886. Lewis's father Hiram Craver B 1807 in Georgetown, District of Columbia. No record of Hiram after 1870. Hiram's father Jacob Craver B 25 Dec 1776 Georgetown, Maryland. D 25 Jan 1853 in Addison, PA. James had twin younger sisters. Bertha died 10 Dec 1898. Jacob Craver is as far back as I have been able to trace. My grandfather only response when ask where he came from was " over the hill in Somerset."
