About Our Family Research
I am searching the family of John Leslie Criswell b. July 1, 1901 in Madras, Oregon. He was the first white child born there. His father, William Sherman Criswell b. July 15, 1865 in Ottumwa, Iowa. Married Gertrude May Potter July 8, 1890 in Hill City, Kansas. He moved the family over the Barlow Trail in 1916. William became ill and tried to go back to Madras, but died along the way. I am trying to find a date and place.
