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.

Hi Linda. I do wish you'd email me directly since we share a lot of ancestors, or at least you and my husband do. Some years ago you gave me the graves at Horner's Chapel that weren't your direct ancestors.

I just appreciated that the twin daughters of Polly Crandall Lofton were named Elizabeth and Matilda after their two grandmothers. All buried at Horner's Chaptel except for Matilda Lofton who is at the Simeon Lofton grave yard. Been to a number of funerals there.

I just found your memorial for Reed Crandall because I was looking for his descent from Elder John Crandall and I didn't find Elder John in the "Great Migration" book. Thanks for providing it.

Have you ever visited Elder John's house (still standing from the 17th century) in Rhode Island. It stayed in the Crandall family until a few years ago when it was deeded to an Indian tribe to preserve it. It was quite a visit.

I am doing a project for a WWII class at Floyd Central High School on a soldier that fought in the war and lived in Floyd County. If you would be willing to somehow contact us and answer a few questions about your cousin, it would be greatly appreciated.

RE: #54482679
His obituary states he was buried in Saybrook Cemetery. I just recently visited Bates and confirmed that no one has been buried out there in the last 50 years.

I just read your bio, sorry someone was ugly to you, that does get you down. I have had that happen too. I noticed you wanted to be notified when people add pix. I know I have added pix to Harry, I don't know if I have added pix to your other memorials.
