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.

RE: Fullerton Memorial

It was intended to show something besides "unknown".
It coincides with the last known residence. Pending someone finding by chance a monument to photograph, at least for now the person is remembered with a memorial.

Hi Tom
Sending you best wishes from Devon, England.
I am not a crago relative but my partner is. His great grandmother, Kate Lilian Crago was born in Exeter in 1890. Her brother Frederick emigrated to New Orleans and died there in 1937.

Thank you for managing the Crago pages on this site.

Merry Christmas to you and your family

Hi Tom,
May I have permission to copy your photo of my great grandparents' gravestone to my tree on Ancestry? I spent almost a day in the Woodville (Sandusky) Ohio Cemetery this fall photographing Myerholtz, Spada & Hurrelbrink stones, but somehow missed the very one I most wanted to find--Edwin David and Catharina Mary Spada Myerholts.
Thanks, Patti Owens

RE: Niedermeyer
Hi Tom,

Henry Niedermeier was my great grandfather. My grandmother was Frieda L. Niedermeier, daughter of Henry, who married William James Hartley in Ohio. They subsequently moved and settled in Bethesda, Maryland. I have some bio information to exchange.
I visited Woodville with my Uncle Jack in 1969, while my grandmother was visiting he sister Edna. We visited all the Niedermeiers while there and only wish I had been doing this research then. I didn't start until 1989. Let me know what I can provide you.

RE: Request for transfer
Hi Tom,

Thanks for your reply.

In good faith I send you my line.
Frederick Holler 1771-1845
George Holler 1817-1904
David Holler 1853-1944
George Alonzo Holler 1882-1964
George Frederick Holler 1906-1996
Richard Louis Holler 1934-
David Holler 1961-

Seeing that I'm managing most of the memorials at The Lower Miami Cemetery in Ohio, I'm also assuming that Janet's line is from Frederick Holler to Christian Holler (George Holler's brother)?
Christian's children are buried elsewhere.

Could you tell me Janet's lineage?

All the best,


David Holler

Request for transfer
Hi Tom and Janet,

My name is David Holler and I'm the great, great, great, great grandson of Frederick Holler 1771-1845

Seeing that he's a direct descendant of mine, and I'm already managing his children's, children' etc. memorials as well, I'd like to make a formal request for the transfer of his memorial. Find A Grave Memorial# 17984762

If you're a direct relative, could you tell me in what relation?
If you need any other info, please let me know.
Happy Holidays.

Sincerely yours,

David Holler
