Bio and Links
Bio Photo Maiden name Crauswell, born in Alabama 1953. Amateur genealogist seeking to collect and preserve family history, and photographer with a digital camera. I enjoy riding my Honda Helix, collecting family history and 'graving'.

See my Virtual Cemeteries for my families of interest. Or start with my father Dub Crauswell and follow the links.

I add memorials of unrelated individuals I discover in newspaper obituaries if: names, locations and dates might link them to my family tree; and/or advanced age, and/or an interesting obit.

Individuals are welcome to borrow my photographs and to use them for non-commercial purposes that fall within the rules and guidelines of provided ownership source is clearly acknowledged in each instance, Thank you.

A very hearty and warm THANK YOU to anyone who is able to add a photo or additional information to any of the memorials I have created! Most of all, thank you for catching my 'fat fingers' mistakes.

RE: Babe Roberts #54217690
No problem. I had actually taken that photo several years ago. Babe (Squire, legally) was my paternal great-great grandfather.

RE: Della D. Strange Skinner Memorial# 7212610
You are so welcome. I have a few of Della's sisters memorial in Upshur County and just trying to "round them all up"....there were quite a few girls in that family, even some named boys names; think the only boy was Grady.

Elizabeth, I couldn't find any record of it either. Unless they have started a new cemetery there because he pastored there. I looked up a map of it on and could not tell from the satellite map that any graves were there.

RE: Memorial# 13339039 - Matilda Caroline Deason Bracknell Owens
Had me looking. I really don't have a lot on this branch of the family. So, didn't some searching census and marriage records

Henry and Matilda listed with son John in 1900 Census. married 35 yrs.

Marriage Records Bibb Co. married 9 Feb 1866.

So, Matilda and William must have divorced.

William Bracknell and Henry's mother were probably kin. Brother and sister or cousins. Henry's mother is listed as Lucy Bracknell.

Help any

Thanks for the information on Margie and Clara! I had no idea they were sisters until talking to my mother recently. They are both her aunts by marriage from different sides of the family.
