Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was 12 years old, my great aunt gave me a family group sheet with photos & I was hooked. That was 50 years ago & I've been working on my personal family genealogy since then.

About thirty years ago, I started updating the descendants of Azariah Crandall Jr. He died in 1825, in Clark county Indiana. He had 17 children, 11 of which were sons. In just a few years, all of Southern Indiana was littered with Crandalls. It was very difficult keeping the families straight. One of these days I hope to publish my research or at least give the information to local libraries.

The memorials, that aren't my personal relatives, come from newspapers, funeral homes, death certificates, cemetery census records & military records.I am also working on imputing a cemetery in Northern Arizona.

Otherwise, I live with all my dogs & cats in the Phoenix area. I breed Shih Tzus & do kitten rescue. Sometimes I get very busy bottle feeding or with a sick little one. Please have patience with me.

If you have a correction, addition or family links you'd like me to make, please let me know. Click on the edit tab of the memorial & make your suggestion, I'd also appreciate it, if when you post a photo on one of my memorials, that you let me know about it.

I recently had a negative encounter with a person on this site. I am no longer willing to transfer memorials I have created or receive emails. I'm really sorry about this.

I will transfer within the guidelines set out by Find A Grave though:

Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Joseph O. Ferguson
I saw his death record and it said Joseph A. Ferguson on, but when I went into the records His real full name is Joseph Oliver Ferguson. Even his World War I draft records say so. Sorry I edited it to be Joseph A. I was wrong with that edit

Azariah & Rebecca Crandall

Linda, I've been struggling with the Azariah Crandall/Rebecca Reynolds marriage, of which there seems to be no evidence anywhere except that "everyone says so." Most sources cite a 1755 marriage date, which is clearly impossible for a woman born in 1746. Many also give Rebecca the 1738 birthdate of a different Rebecca, born in Greenwich.

I'm wondering what facts you might have. You seemed more informed than most in 1999, and I'm betting that's even more so now. Again, you might want to email me directly at

He is actually buried in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery in Borden (see picture of his grave marker on that site). I don't think there is a Pleasant View in New Washington. I think I might ask then to delete you may want to move your obit of him to his true location. This cemetery has puzzled me for a looooong time.

Katherine and George Nickles

Would you have an issue with turning over the grave memorials of these two to my care? They were my Great-Aunt and Uncle. Katherine's oldest sistwr, my Grandmother died Saturday. I would like to start adding her and her siblings as children to their parents memorial. All are gone now except the youngest brother.

I wonder if this is a relative of yours. My great grandfather, Julian Nowakowski is Alexander's brother and I would love to compare notes if it is. Thank you

Wanted to let you know how much I appreciated finding where my great grandmother was buried.

Thank You so much,

Linda V. Crandall?
Hello. I'm wondering if you're long-time Crandall researcher Linda V. Crandall. If so, I've come across a 1999 newsgroup post of yours that I'd like to discuss. Message me directly, if you like, at

Abner Crandall
Dear Linda,
You stated that Abner was buried at the St Johns The Baptist Church. He is not buried there , he is buried at his farm in Hoosick Falls. I explained what was on the Bronze marker to be stated on his memorial. I will have a photo of it shortly, to be posted on his memorial. I am trying to be accurate with this memorial of my 5th G.Grand father.
If this is a problem ? If so I would be happy to take over the site.Thank you for your many services
with Find A Grave. Regards, Tom Ryan
