Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been married 58 years but we have no children. I was an elementary teacher for 21 years, quitting in the spring of 1972 to stay home and care for a nephew for five years. After he became school age, I went back to work in 1977 as a police dispatcher and continued in this work for approximately ten years. I began my family research shortly before quitting this job. I took over publication of a family newsletter when the original publisher was no longer able to continue. I enjoy exchanging information with other researchers.

When requesting photos, please remember that the person who took the photo owns the copyright to that photo. Posting to another website a photo for which you do not own the copyright, or have permission to use from the copyright owner, is a violation of copyright laws.

RE: Re: Elsie Ellen (White) Cryderman
Hello, I've been searching through my papers attempting to locate some documentation, but have not been successful at this point.
Elsie's younger brother, Lester White is my grandfather. He always told his daughter Daisy (my mother) and I all of the White siblings, with the exception of the youngest (Leroy), were born in rural Brumley, Miller, MO. Others in his family stated the same.
Lester, my mother and I have made the trip to Brumley MO where he showed us the old house in the timber where they were born.
(I have copies of Lester's funeral home paperwork, obituary, etc., stating he was born in Brumley.)

Looking at documentation, Elsie's parents were born, married and resided in (Glaize/Brumley)Miller with the exception of the 1900 census showing Pulaski County. The rural family home currently is about a mile from the Pulaski county line. I'm not finding my notations where I addressed this county change, but would guess it possibly could have been a township/line movement.
I know this still does not prove where Elsie was born, but I will continue to search.
Thank you for your time and patience.

HI Joan, I tried to read the death year for Flora from the photo, but couldn't. I think the last number for the year is a 2. I have found her on the 1930 census with her daughter. Do you think her death date is 1932? Or do you have her death date? Thanks so much for your contributions to findagrave!
