Caleb Moncrief
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 15, 1856
Montgomery
Montgomery County
Alabama, USA
Death: Nov. 4, 1894
Cincinnati
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

Caleb was born in Montgomery, Alabama and raised in Lake City Florida. He became a telegraph operator in Boston, where he met his wife Araliza and married her. They then moved to Brooklyn, New York where their children were born, and he operated a business as an electrician (we have one of his account books). Their youngest son (Frank)died in the spring of 1894, and then Caleb died in December 1894.
The mysteries:
What was he doing in Cincinnati when his family and business were in Brooklyn?
How did he die?
We know he died in Cincinnati, as his son wrote it in a book he once owned: "The Civil War in Song and Story".
