My mother Helen Marie Barrett Cruce Bearer (b. Monticello, AR 1919) married Robert Harris Cruce, brother to C.T. Cruce.Priscilla is my 1st cousin.She has researched the family and my mother has a copy of her book.She says there are a few inaccuracies (i.e. some photos mislabeled) but because of word-of-mouth they are inevitable.I have just become interested in tracing the family and will borrow Mother's book.I have found these sites very interesting and am printing the messages for my mother to read. I was born in Houston, TX. and have lived here all of my life.My father passed away in Nov., 1963 and was buried the day Kennedy was shot.I have 2 sisters both living.There are some Cruces living in Houston, TX., but am not sure of our connection.
