Re: McCristal/McCrystal/Chrystal NY / VA
Hi Bob - I found the death of my Fannie/Frances McCrystal on the 1870 mortality list for NY.Still haven't found Susie on the 1880 census.However there is a15 yr old 'Sarah' listed in the home of Hugh and Susan McCrystal. She is listed as daughter but, since Hugh and Susan are 80/74, I don't think so.She must be granddaughter. They did have a 5 yr old Susie there in June 1870.The census where she is with her father, Eddie, was taken in Jan 1871 (I guess they ran over time)so possibly the child was counted twice.
I found the marriage of your Catherine McCrystal married to James Reilley.Her parents are listed as Patrick and Mary. (not Hugh and Susan.)So we, are still tracking two different families.It would be nice if we could connect.
