Hi Cousin Lori!! This is Cousin Jimmy from CG!(Now in Monticello. It's been many years! Email me please -firstname.lastname@example.org
I probably can provide more detail about Oliver F. and Cora Cripe (My Grandparents) Their Children are listed below with married names. I believe the order is fairly close to the birth order.
Vera Cripe (Bowen) Fern Cripe (Muzzy) Ira G. Cripe (My Father)(Wife was Evelyn My Mother) Mildred Cripe (Moore)(Twin of Marie)(Husband was Homer) Marie Cripe (Goodwin)(Twin of Mildred) Galen D.Cripe (Of Decatur, wife was Beatrice) Vernon O. Cripe (Lori's Grandfather and Grandmother is Myrtle the only living of the brothers/sisters and spouses.
I know the family genealogy back to David Cripe who was Oliver F Cripe's grandfather. Oliver's father was George W. Cripe, born in Ohio in 1833. Does anyone know who David's father was? David's brothers were John and Samuel. Samuel had a son who was Samuel Jr. That is as far back as I can go. Can anyone help?
