I have no idea if there is any conection between us at all, but I thought I would give it a shot.
My name is Freddie Craft and I currently live in Mount Airy, North Carolina, but I am orignially from Welch West Virginia, in McDowell County.
My grandmother's name was Ada Louise Blankenship Craft. She married my grandfather Elmer Craft and they had seven children. Bill, Robert, Elmer (or Junior as he is referred to), Tommy, Freddie (My Father), and one daughter Phyllis (now a Pardue). They had one other daughter Loise, but she died shortly after birth.
My grandmother died when my father was 12 years old in a automobile accident. (So if my calculation is correct she would have died about 1962 ). I am sorry I do not know more about her. I believe that she also had a brother named Fred, of whom my father was named after him. This is just about all I know.
If you think there is any possiblity there may be a connection between us, please e-mail me!! Does any of these names sound familiar to you? Or if there is anyone out there who has read this any thinks there could be a possible link or connection between us, please, PLEASE, PLEASE e-mail me at or
Please, even if you (Debbie Jones) think there is no connection between us, please e-mail to let me know if at all possible, so I will at least know there is no connection between us! Thank You so, so very much!!!!! I really appreciate any help at all you can give me!!
I would really like to know where I come from, I have cancer and am in remission now, but I would really like to find out these things just in case anything ever happens to me. Thanks again so very very much!!!!!!

With Great Appreciation,

Freddie Craft
