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.

The Society of Australian Genealogists transcribed all accessible memorials at Rookwood during the 1980s. They have since licensed to publish the transcriptions on-line. The CRAGO graves for Arthur E. (1929-1950) and Dorothy Maud (1897-1930), and the other for Francis (1888-1930), do not appear in the transcription, which indicates that there was no surviving headstone on their plots in the 1980s. Further, I see that Arthur & Dorothy are in Graves 1412 & 1414 in R.C. Mortuary 2 - but there is no Section Number, and so difficult to locate. Are you sure that location is correct?.

I was unable to locate the photo request you made for the Francis CRAGO who died in 1930. However, I now have several photos of the Francis CRAGO Monument at Rookwood Cemetery, but he died in 1907, aged 59. His wife Mary Ann was buried with him, as well as a son Percival George CRAGO (1895-1937), and a daughter Edith Marion (died 1909).
Would you like me to create memorials for them?

RE: Henrietta Yarick
It took three separate visits to her grave site, but I am certain now there is no marker/headstone for her. She is in a nice section of the cemetery, very close to my own relatives. Thank you for your acknowledgement of my efforts.
