RE: kin of Celia Crockett md 1864 Seneca Co OH to Rudolph Pulaski

Reading The Big Burn book about 1910 forest fire near Wallace Idaho, I was intrigued/impressed with Wallace ID area USFS ranger Ed Pulaski
Being a genealogist, I looked for a family tree on him.
Mostly I had to patch it together myself and post it on internet at
http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...
and
http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&d...

--to see any sources/evidence you have to go to above sites,

• Sex: M
• Birth: FEB 1866 in 1880:family inMO,,OH,? Seneca Co OH ?
• Death: 2 FEB 1931 in ,Kootenai,ID
