Brian, what a pleasant surprise to hear from the author himself- and a distant cousin of my husband Jim!
Since I posted that message, I have found who I believe to be JOHN WILLIAM CRAIGLOW's parents, as well as other data.
Since you traveled and researched the tried-and-true way of genealogists, I want to express my appreciation for the time, money, etc., you expended to compile your data and publish your book. At the same time, I truly envy the experiences you must have had in your interviews, historical research, etc.
Perhaps I should post a new message with the updated data for the benefit of other researchers. This has been the time for responses to the Craiglow/Criglow name!
Brian, I try to cite my sources whether it is merely a census, word from another researcher (with or without a source cited), or whatever. It can at least be clues that way.
Do let me tell you that Mary "Thelma" Walker who married Radford Ray, son of William Seaborn "Seab" Ray and Laura Jane Criglow, is 99 years of age and still living. However, she is in poor health as I type this. She lives in Wayne, Michigan, with her only daughter. I did research on her Walker family for her to add to her Burton data she passed to her daughter Jean. Please feel free to email me.
