Sonja, You have some information I might be able to use. My grandfather was Loren Crissup, who's father was Bryson Crissup, who's father was Jasper Crissup. Bryson lived in Effingham, Illinois. Loren also lived there until he moved to Decatur, Illinois around 1920.
Loren CrissupBorn: Sept 3, 1907Died: June 23, 1999 Bryson Hugh CrissupBorn: Aug 7, 1871Died: Oct 31, 1947 Jasper CrissupBorn: 1834?
I have only been able to go as far as Jasper Crissup at this time. I would be interested to see the rest of your family tree on the Crissup's so I could add it to mine.
