As I am a cousin to this Crabbe family and have been involved with the research, my purpose of this posting is to identify the family of this Crabbe family who have their names in the Archive Dump - Crabbe and Archive Dump - Crabbe Addendum, for those related to this family.I am appreciative of Judy Reamy for posting the History of Ohio, Vol. III, by Charles Burleigh Galbreath, An Historical Society, Inc., Chicago & NY, 1925, which adds much to our family genealogy.
