I am not related. Hope this helps. RP

Jamie, your message spells the name Crover. Did you mispell the name, by replacing what most likely was a "b" with a "v"?, or have you thought all this time that the name was Crover, and not Crober/Crowbar?

I may be wrong, but it seems like the family you are searching for was Crober/Crowbar.

From what I gathered, Evelyn's parents were Charles Franklin Crober/Crowbar and Mary Pearl Coates. Charles parents were William Crowbar and Sarah Sarvis (Servais?). Mary's parents were Israel Coates and Matilda Allen. Mary seems to have been married 2 times before she married Charles. Once to a Hewitt, and then to George L. Stevens.

Charles Crowbar/Crober & Mary Coates had 6 children. James Hasel Crowbar, who died April 20, 1900 (born 16 Feb 1899), about 14 months old. He was born & died in Humbird, Clark County, Wisconsin. Eva, born about 1902 (possibly in Mentor, Clark County, Wisconsin, George Edward, born 24 Nov 1905 in Neillsville, Clark County, Wisconsin, Gertrude, born about 1908-1909, possibly in Clark or Winnebago County, Dorothy, born about 1913, possibly in Winnebago or Manitowoc County, and Evelyn, born about 1916, possibly in Winnebago or Manitowoc County. The 5 living children were still with their parents during the 1920 census. I think I found Evelyn in the 1930 census, at the State Public School for Dependant Children in Sparta, Monroe County, Wisconsin. And I think I found Dorothy in the 1930 census at the Northern Colony and Training School, Chippewa, Wisconsin.
Charles, Mary, and son George were living in Neenah during the 1930 census. I lost track of Eva. Gertrude married Frank Retzloff.

Mary Pearl Coates seems to have had a sister, Laura Coates, who married William Wildish July 29, 1895 in Neillsville, Clark County, Wisconsin. Married Laura Wildish was living with William and Sarah Crowbar (Charles' parents), during the 1900 census.

Charles Crowbar had 3 known brothers, Harry, John, & Henry, and 1 or 2 known sisters, Anna Sires, and Mrs. Herman Kosseck. I don't know if Anna married Sires, then Kosseck?, or if there was another sister. Anna Sires was living with her parents and her children during the 1900 and 1905 census. I didn't look any further on the family.
