While visiting the cemetery in the early 1970's with my grandfather Mathias, son of William, he told me the birth date on William's marker was incorrect. He was born in 1855 not 1854.
William Bunn McCrea Jr., Great grandson of William Sweazy McCrea.
William S. McCrea, a well known resident of Pattenburg, where for a number of years he followed the occupation of a carpenter, died at his home Saturday morning, aged 77 years.
