Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Carl Eldon Crandall
Just wondering if you are related to Carl Eldon Crandall 43160469 (or know who his parents are) . I think his parents are Frank Rufus Crandall and Hattie Kirkham ( my 3rd great grandparents) but not sure if this is the right Carl Eldon Crandall. I'd love to share/swap info/photos.

RE: Memorial# 98933099
She is a 2nd cousin 1x removed but I did find her birth certificate which indicates a couple of things:
1. Her actual name at birth was Frances Josephine Fischer. It states that actual date of birth was March 27, 1909. Her mother's maiden name was NICOLOAI and her name was Anna Martha. The mother had been married previously to an Alfred Kulow.

I'm not sure where the name Ester came from because I've not seen any documents where that name was used.

Alva and Rhoda Crandall photo
Rhoda was my great grandfather's sister, and I loved seeing her picture. I recently scanned a photo album which belonged to Eugene Elliott's son and have some great pictures. If you are interested I'm glad to share.

memorial 3286141
Linda, I don't think this is the correct company & regiment for this Henry Ricky. The Henry Ricky from IOWA died in IOWA. I think this is the Henry Rickey, Indiana, who died aboard the Hospital Steamer "D.A. JANUARY". If you find that you think this way, can you delete your message indicating he was from IOWA?

Rudes Family Tree - J & S
Samuel Crandall
My husband's family is descended from Eber Crandall and Patience Lanphere/Lamphere, and of their son, Samuel.
The information on this site, when Find a Grave is attached to Samuel in Ancestry, indicates place of death as Havana, Cuba. Since that is not included in the information you wrote for Samuel, I would love to ask if there are any direct sources you may have about Samuel - family Bible, printed death certificate, time of military service or any other individual or family details. My sister and I are working in Ancestry, tracing several trees, and we really appreciate any substantiating information we can get.
Do you have an Ancestry tree we might look at for some of this? The thought of family information passed on to you is so exciting! Maybe there is something there that would relate to my husband's tree, and maybe we will have something to help you, too.
Contact me at rudes on Ancestry.
Thank you.
