My dad whose name was Valdo Craney (NMN) was born in Pocatello, Idaho. His parents were Oscar and Dorothy Craney. His parents were originally from Texas but moved to Idaho
aproximately in the 1920s. Oscar Craney worked for the Railroad and also served in one of the earlier wars. Dorothy Craney supposedly had a seamtress business. My dad, Valdo Craney, served in the war. My dad died in 1986 in Denver, Colorado and is buried there in the Veterans cemetery.

Both of my grandparents died in Pocatello, Idaho and are buried in the Mountainview Cemetery. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Karon, There are three graves in the St. Maries, Idaho cemetary for members of the Craney family. As I recall, burial dates were @1920-30s. I have some notes somewhere,. If you're interested email me and I'll look them up. I noted this as my stepfather, William (James) Craney spent his young adulthood in St. Maries, but hadn't mentioned other family.
FYI, Dad was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It's interesting that this unusual suraname convened in such relatively close and rural areas. Hard to believe there's no blood connection, eh? Hope to hear from you, Mick.

Good evening Mrs Douglas,
My name is Lesley Stokes and my father in-law name was Rodney Stokes. The reason I'm reaching out to you is because your father was my father in law uncle. My father in law was adopted is 1955 and his mother was Erica Craney which was Valdo Craney sister.I'm trying to find out more info about Erica Craney if she had any other children or if she was ever married.My father in law passed away in 2003 from diabetes complications and we just want to know his background.
If you have any info can you please reach out to me.
Thank you,
