Hello Charles,Thanks for replying. I'm not sure which Roy you went to school with, was he possibly called Roy Jr.? He would have been born in 1924. He was my Dad's cousin and I knew him quite well.
My Dad was Ralph Crain son of Otis and Margaret Crain. Friend and Rebecca Crain were his grandparents. Friend was the son of George and Catherine Crain.
Did one of your Creekpaum family donate the land for Creekpaum School, Church, and Cemetery? I have always wondered how they got the name Creekpaum.I grew up in Du Quoin and it seems you rarely found anyone who knew where Creekpaum was located.
Do you remember anything about the Crain family? I am working to put together my family tree and so many of the older generation are gone.
Can you tell me who Walter Crain's parents were? I'm not sure I have him in my tree.
I am trying to keep Creekpaum on the map, see below:
