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 tried to document 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 FAG work now credited to me was his doing. Visit his FAG memorial for more about Adalbert Goertz 69628876.
Abraham Unruh obituary Hi, I see that there is an obituary posted in the description for Abraham Unruh (1828-1896) see #30552314 . I was wondering where you got this and if you know what newspaper this was? Also, I'm assuming you're not related to him, but if you are, I'd love to trade info on that family.
Janet F. Beaman Craigo 22648837 Hello, Janet's father James Andrew Beaman 8503412 was the brother of my grandfather Lewis R. Beaman 8676214, do you have any information in your research able the Beaman side of this family? Thank you, Carolyn Beaman
Maria Boese They were my photos, so I added them to your memorial. One of the children was my memorial, so I changed the link for that one. I contacted the owners of the memorials for the other children with the new link, so they will have to make the change. And I deleted my memorial. I think we have it taken care of. Thanks!
Online cemetery records for Ballarat Cemetery show 3 people named John Crago, neither of which died in 1886. One died in 1888 (there is already a photo for him), another in 1899 aged 5 weeks old, and the third in 1896 aged 66 years.
Do you have the correct date of death? Or do you think the cemetery records have him under a different name?
