Re: Lute McCrickard 1868 - 1954
David, Daniel Thomas McCrickard was the son of Matthew McCrickard and Mary Ann Wallace. One of his brothers was Benjamin Tatum McCrickard (my ex-husband's great-grandfather). Matthew likewise is the son of John McCrickard of County Down, Ireland who came to America before 1802. Lute Ashley McCrickard was the son of another of Matthew's sons, John H. McCrickard. John H. passed away at a young age. He was born approximately 1846 and in the 1880 census his wife Nancy P Wright McCrickard was already widowed. If I can be of any help to you, I would be happy to let you know what information I have. I started researching McCrickards for my ex-husband in the 1990s when he was saying he was unsure if his family roots were Scotch or Irish. By our separation in 1997 we had amassed a Family Tree for him of over 1700 individuals, which I had submitted to World Family Tree/Broderbund, Version 15 Tree 2131. I was recently able to access the entire file on Ancestry.com searching for another relative of his, John Hix so I now also have the complete GEDCOM file. I know my ex-husband Marlin has more info than I do, and has visited some family members, but ifI can help at all, please let me know!
