Hi, Bev. Your father and my grandfather, Adah Crouch, were brothers. They were the sons of Elisha and Minerva (Black) Crouch. I have the obituary of Minerva in which all ll children are listed: John, William, James, Charles, Adah, Clarence, Edna, Helen, Marie and Mrs. H.B.Wilson . Elisha was born Aug. 6, 1852; died Feb. 14, 1917. He and Minerva are both buried at Westland Cemetary. I have more information on the various family lines and would be very interested in comparing it with what you have. Please contact me at klstringer@zoominternet.net

Hi Juanita,

I don't have anything in my files on Amelia Crouch. Most of my information on the Crouches is in southwestern PA. I've been trying to find out when Robert Crouch came from Maryland, if he had any siblings and who came with him to PA. If you have any information along that line, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks for your reply,

Kathleen Crouch Stringer

Kathleen,

I'm researching this branch of the Crouch family or at least I think and hope you can help me out. It is actually my cousin's mother's line. Her father was Clyde Houston Crouch(b. 1896) married to Virginia Mackey. Clyde Houston's parents were William Houston Crouch(b.1875) married to Ida Belle Parshall. All in Washington County(PA). Supposedly William Houston's father was Elisha.

They sure threw that Houston name out there.

Hi Dan
Which daughter of Clyde Houston Crouch and Virginia Mackey are you researching? Esther married Robert Lemley and __ Weitzel; Audrey married Donald Curfman and __ Johnson; Gladys married Joseph Redman.
Clyde's father and mother, William and Ida (Parshall) Crouch divorced; William married Minnie Pease and had two more daughters: Evelyn, married William Bucklew; and Margaret, married Charles Furman. Ida remarried as well - surname Duddy. She is buried in Westland Cemetery in Washington Co., PA, along with son, Roy.
Clyde also is buried in Westland Cemetery. Virginia Mackey Crouch must be buried in Chattanooga,TN.
Would love to hear more from you. Please contact me directly - kat52@zoominternet.net.

Dan - have tried several times to reply to your e-mail but it keeps bouncing back. I'll try to contact you through this forum.
Anyway, thanks for the information about Audrey's sons. I believe that Audrey actually was married to your Uncle Don. A small article in the Morning Herald (Uniontown, PA)dated Mar 11 1952 - Audrey Curfman, a minor, of Waynesburg, granted divorce from Donald L. Curfman.
I don't have Audrey's birthdate - if you could supply that, I would appreciate it. Any information at all you have about Audrey would be helpful.
Audrey's father, Clyde Houston, and my dad were first cousins. Clyde's father, William Crouch, and my grandfather were brothers. I didn't know Uncle William - he died the year I was born (1952). We lived in Washington Co., PA and William and his family were in Greene Co.
I don't have much information on the Mackey line - my main research is the Crouch family. All I have so on Virginia is that she was born in Canton Twp., Washington Co., PA, a daughter of Harry Taylor Mackey (b. Oct 1871) and Mary Mostella Grimm (b. Apr 1876, PA); brother, Joseph Edwin (Ted) and sister, Wilda May. Harry T. was the son of James E. Mackey, b. Jun 1844, PA and Caroline/Manette, b. May 1839, NY. (1880 census, she is listed as Caroline; 1900 and 1910, it looks like Manette, but all three have NY as birthplace and the age is correct;father born in Germany and mother born in France.)
At first, I thought Mostella was Mary's maiden name, but I found an obituary for Edwin Mackey, in which she is named as Mary Mostella Grimm. An unusual name - was that Virginia's middle name, too? If your cousin has any additional information, let me know. I'll try to find more on the Mackey line and I can help with the Crouch line.

Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Kathleen (Crouch) Stringer

Not sure why my mail would be bouncing. I got what you posted below last night as well as the one last week and the one you sent this morning(5/8/10 @ 6:00am). I replied, about the same time as you posted this response, with 3 e-mails including one with all the data you requested on Aubrey and the Curfmans.

I had a grandfather Dheu William Crouch. I was wondering if he is part of this family. I really don't know much as he was estranged from his daughter, my mother. I believe he might have had a brother Robert. My mother was born in 1947 so he was prob born in the early 1900's-1920's.
