I have moved all the links for genealogy timelines to Urlist. Here is the new list.
A few other genealogists have posted their “Death Tree” for All Hallows’ Eve today. I thought I’d join in and see what I have.
Not sure what to make of all this information, but it was interesting putting it all together.
Try as I might, I just can’t get ahold of my great grandfather's birth record. I found this index on familysearch.org several months back.
It seemed to confirm what several cousins have told me about his name, he had three names. I located three signatures for great granddad Crew. You can see them here ( Wordless Wednesday– Great Granddad Crew’s Signature )and here (Wordless Wednesday– Two more signatures of Robert Edgar Crew).
So now that I had a way to actually see his birth record, I contacted FamilySearch Photoduplication Services and requested a copy of the record. I waited for less than two weeks only to get the following response.
How disappointing! The good news is that the record exists (or existed) somewhere. The problem is tracking it down!Happy Hunting!
For two previous posts on Robert Edgar Crew see:
Cyrena F. M.
Wife of E. Crew
Daughter of R. B. & C. P. Ash
Born Mar 30, 1869
Died Feb 7, 1886
This is the marker for my 2nd great grandmother, Cyrena Florence M. Ash Crew. She was the daughter of Robert Benjamin Ash (1832 – 1904) and Cyrena Priscilla Herington (1834 – 1894). She married Elisha Crew on 6 July 1883 in Coryell County, Texas. She was 14 years old; he was 25 years old. This was his second marriage. They had one child, a son, Robert Edgar Crew. Cyrena died less than two months after he was born. She is buried in Wood Cemetery – Jonesboro, Coryell County, Texas.
Thanks to Find A Grave member Russ Teer U.S. ARMY (disabled vet) (#47686277) for taking this marker photograph and allowing me to share it here on my blog. Much appreciated!
There is another photograph of Cyrena’s grave that I do not have permission to use, yet. If you would like to see what her full grave looked like in 2006, please visit her Find A Grave memorial.
