Cheryl Crandall Pollock
Carrie Mae Hoffay was my Grandmother
My name is Cheryl Crandall Pollock. My grandmother Carrie Mae Hoffay was daughter of Susannah Crandall and Thomas Sullivan Hoffay. She married her cousin Benjamin Harrison Crandall, son of Alexander Washington Crandall and Mary Martin.

I grew up in Troy with my 3 sisters. I now live in Clifton Park, NY. One of my sisters, Gail still lives in Troy. One sister Ginnie lives in CO and another in FL.

I have made a recreation of a civil war gown and have studied the history of woman's costumes in Civil War to Edwardian era.

Nice to meet you Todd.

RE: Daniel Nichols diary
Todd- I have transcribed the diaries but have not published them in book form. If you are in the Buffalo area you are welcome to visit, view the diaries and read the transcript.

I see you took pictures of the site. Can you provide actual location of the site. Street or GPS coordinates if possible.

Robert Ross
Greetings -

In searching old newspapers for my ancestor's life events, I found Mr. Ross' obit in a Lowell, MA newspaper. I'm sending it to you via email, as Mr. Ross' F-A-G memorial page has reached it's maximum of 5 photos. A few photos are duplicates and may be deleted in order to add his obit. Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!!

Polly was mother to my great great grandfather, Amos Crandall. I was brought up in Berlin, NY. My maiden name is Yerton, grandparents Gilbert & Ada (Bly) Yerton. I am looking for any other info about Polly, including her parents names. Thank you for your help.

Just wondering
I've been researching my ancestry and saw you were from Troy, NY. Are you possibly a descendant of Agnes E. Rowland-Hoffay? I am trying to put together as complete of a family tree as possible. If you have any relation and could possibly send me family names and such it would be much appreciated.
