NOTES from Karen Anway (on 10/04/09):
"Marcus Crippen's first wife was Mary Ann Martin, married about mid- to late-1850s. They lived in Superior Twp., Washtenaw, MI. Had four children and all died rather young except one: John Thomas Crippen. According to the Census they moved to Livingston Co., Michigan. Marcus's son John T. Crippen lived with Marcus' parents, Ichabod and Elizabeth Crippen. Perhaps Mary Ann died from the birth of John (1863). By 1864 Marcus married Martha Grawly and had more children. I think John may have moved to Detroit for I could not find him in later Census for Livingston Co,. but found a John in Detroit.

"Mary Ann is the sister to my (Karen's) Great Grandfather. Family is from the Corholland area in County Monaghan, Ireland." See:
