Bio and Links
Bio Photo Over the past several years, I've spent much of my free time researching multiple Crago, Craigo, Cragoe, Crego and Cregoe family trees, and you'll find a lot of information on FindaGrave about those family lines. I've also identified more than 600 of my direct paternal and maternal ancestors. I'm happy to share most of this information with other family researchers.

I've documented every known Crago and Craigo in America prior to 1900, and have lately begun to concentrate on the Crago's, Cragoe's and Cregoe's of Cornwall, England, Australia and New Zealand. I have extensive family files as a result of this search (i.e., more than 6000 different Crago's, Cragoe's, Crego's, Cregoe's and Craigo's).

As Project Administrator for DNA research on the various Crago/ Craigo/ Crego families tested at FTDNA, I can say with confidence that most of the family DNA patterns in America are now pretty well understood. Contact me for details of that DNA research, or check out the website below.

Finally, I've recently joined the Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS), based in England, in order to further the study of the Crago surname worldwide. Any Crago, Cragoe, Crego, Cregoe or Craigo in the World is encouraged to join these efforts.
NOTE!!  In July of 2011, about 5000 memorials created and/or managed by the late Dr. Adalbert Goertz were merged with the 1,000 or so I had created and/or managed prior to that. I very much regret that when FAG merged the two accounts, they removed the credit which should be properly given to Adalbert for all the work he did. I'll readily acknowledge that most of the work now credited to me was his doing. Visit his FAG memorial for more about Adalbert Goertz 69628876.

I see you manage memorials of quite a few of my and my wife's ancestors and relatives in our area. I am curious what your relationship is with our families. I know of many helpful edits to connect parents and children. And if you are not related and if it would make edits easier would you be interested in transferring management to me.

RE: Crago headstones
No other Crago tombstones are listed in the book. Just those 2 names. Others may be buried there, but there are no stones for them as this book only list the burial that have tombstones. I also checked the diff. spellings of the name & they are not listed. I will remove the photos that I had put on those memorials. Thanks.

Hi Tom!

I see you are researching Crago so I am not sure that my great great grandfather has anything to do with you. You are down as his memorial being created by you though. #38678498 I am just wondering if you know what is written on the headstone. I am unable to make it out.

Thank you!

MOUNT VERNON — E. Allen “Al” Craigo, of Summit Drive, Mount Vernon, passed away Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born Oct. 5, 1937, in Sugarcreek, Ohio, the son of Frederick Harlan and Mary Beryl (Ripley) Craigo. Al was a 1955 graduate of Sugarcreek-Shanesville High School and in 1959 he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Pharmacy from Ohio Northern University, where he was a member of the Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity. On June 28 of the same year, Al married Jacqueline L. (Chabot) in the United Church of Christ in Bolivar, Ohio. After serving two years in the U.S. Army Reserves, Al began his professional career as a pharmacist for Foster’s Pharmacy in Mount Vernon and SuperX Pharmacies in Mansfield and Mount Vernon.

He was active in the Ohio Pharmacists’ Association, serving as district representative of the Association, and served on the board for eight years. At the Ohio Pharmacists’ Association Licensure Ceremony in the fall of 1992, he was proud to present a Registered Pharmacist’s License to his son, Scott Allen Craigo.

Al was a coach of Little League Baseball at Phillips Park, and an assistant coach for colt football. He was also a member of the Mount Vernon Country Club where he enjoyed golfing.
