Just wanted to say hello.You may have read the exchanges between myself and Steffen Buhler concerning your family.I am the great-granddaughter of William Cripe & Alice Laura Stong.My mother was Nellie Alice Hogan, the namesake of her grandmother, Alice.
The info I have seems to indicate that the Cripe's second son, William, had the middle name of Floyd.Is it possible we are talking about the same person??I have a couple of photos that might help to identify your grandfather.
I have a photo of William Cripe and Alice Laura Stong, and a portrait of Alice by herself and also one of William and possibly his second wife.Also some later photos of his brother John and his wife.Have one that I believe is a picture of the two brothers together.
If you will e-mail me at my address, I will be glad to pass them along to you....they are in good shape and were passed down to me thru my mother and grandmother.I was told that my grandmother's sister, Jesse, gave them to my grandmother one of the last times they were together in the late 70's.Two of the pictures were given to me personally by Aunt Jess when I visited her in Santa Rosa, CA in 1987.
If anyone else has an interest in the pictures, please let me know.You can reach me at:
Also, I would be very interested in seeing the photos you have.
