Hello cousin,
I am also descended from David Oran (Ora) Cruea. Ora Cruea's son, Norbert Cruea, was my grandfather. Norbert Cruea married Opal Arnett and their third child, Frances Charlene Cruea, is my mother. I have verified this through Miami Co., Oh. marriage licenses.

Not too long ago, I was told that Lloyd Cruea was the son of Ensworth Cruea. I seem to remember having something saying that Ensworth Cruea's parents were John & Jane Conway Cruea.

I believe that the Cruea Family Reunion is being held the third Sat. of Aug. 2002 in Troy, Oh. public park. I plan on attending this biannual reunion for the first time this year. If you're interested contact me and I'll double check to make sure my memory on the date is correct.

I've been reading all the messages about the Cruea line but I haven't seen anything on my relatives in the Cruea line. My mother was Barbara Cruea, born Jun 10, 1935 (approx.). She had two sisters, Helen and Darla, and one brother, Donald. Her mother's name was Marie and her father's name was Earl. This is all I know about the Cruea's and I would sure like to know if anyone has ever heard of these Cruea's.

Hi Sandee,

Thanks so much for this reply! My mother was Barbara, she passed away in Jan, 1980, at the age of 45. Her brother, my uncle Don, passed away about 5 years ago. I believe Darla passed away about 2 years ago. I believe Helen is still alive, last name Hedges, Indianapolis. Was Earl your uncle? I knew my grandmother, Marie, boy, are there some stories there. How well did you know any of the family? Do you know what nationality we are besides French?

Thanks again (so much!) for your reply, and hope to hear from you soon.

Linda

Would you know who William Cruea's & Asa Cruea's father was? How about their grandpa Cruea? I was wondering if we were somehow related. From my maternal lineage, I am descended from John & Nancy Harding Cruea's son, Ensworth/Ainsworth Cruea as follows:

1) John Cruea md Nancy Harding
2) Ensworth Cruea md Jane Conway
3) Lloyd Cruea md Louisa Catherine Clements
4) David Oran "Ora" Cruea md Mary McConnell
5) Norbert M. Cruea md Opal Gladys Arnett
6) Frances Charlene Cruea md William Henry Ream
7) William Henry Ream, Jr. (myself)

I think I may know where your CRUEA family ties into mine. I tried looking up your Dora CRUEA on the Mormon site <www.familysearch.org>; and found her in an 1880 census listed as a granddaughter of Rachel CRUEA, 70 years of age. Living with Rachel CRUEA is her son, Samuel J. CRUEA, aged 33 years; Dora CRUEA, 4; Jennie M. CRUEA, 3; and Rachel HALL, 15. Each of the girls is listed as a granddaughter of Rachel CRUEA--the head of the household.

I suspect that Dora & Jennie CRUEA may be the daughters of Samuel J. CRUEA. However, in my CRUEA family tree, I show Samuel CRUEA (b. abt 1810) & his wife, Rachel CONWAY (b. abt 1810) as having at least 3 sons: Enos P. CRUEA (b. abt 1832), Eli CRUEA (b. abt 1847) and Samuel J. CRUEA (b. abt 1849--if the census is accurate this year is obviously wrong). Your Dora CRUEA could be the daughter of any of them. A little bit more research is required to prove which one she is the daughter of.

The following will briefly show how we are related assuming that Samuel J. CRUEA is Dora's father:

1) John CRUEA md Nancy HARDING
2) Samuel CRUEA md Rachel CONWAY
3) Dora CRUEA md Andrew DITTON
2) Ensworth CRUEA md Jane CONWAY
3) Lloyd CRUEA md Louisa Catherine CLEMENTS
4) David Oran CRUEA md Mary McCONNELL
5) Norbert M. CRUEA md Opal Gladys ARNETT
6) Frances C. CRUEA md William Henry REAM
7) William Henry REAM, Jr. (myself)

Notice that we may also be relatives on the CONWAY side. Rachel CONWAY & Jane CONWAY are probably related.

Sincerely,
William (Bill) H. Ream, Jr.
