Re: Trying to locate my past/JAMES JAKE CRABB?
My gr-grandfather is James Jake CRABB ( don't know his dates, but his wife was born in 1878/ their daughter born 1898/don't know anything else on him so far...just began researching him) His name and yours are similar, so even though a long shot...thought I'd give it a chance..especially since they seemed to carry the same names down through their generations, as well as the wives maiden names for middle names.
He married Pearl Erelyne ELKINS (b.18 OCT 1878, pb. ??, d. 28 SEPT 1958 , pd. Oak Grove, LA, West Carroll Parish;; d/o: Doc ELKINS & Mary WATERS)
My grandmother is Beulah Frances CRABB (b. June 1898, pb.?? ; d. 1JAN 1972 ,pd: in Oak Grove, LA, West Carroll Parish;; & d/o: James Jake CRABB & Pearl Erelyne ELKINS, +m. Jack Henry MORGAN b. 9 SEPT 1889, pb. Des Arc Prairie, AR ...around present day Little Rock from what I gather;;d. 19 APRIL 1970 , pd. Oak Grove' LA , West Carroll Parish; s/o: Arthur MORGAN & Kathryn JENKINS...Arthur's father from Ireland)
Does any of this sound familiar?
What are your dates on your CRABB's? Do you have anymore on them...possible year born/place??
