William M Crabtree was born in April of 1855 in Tennessee to __________ and Ellen ______ Crabtree. The first resource I have found for him is his marriage to Fannie Raven on May 28, 1883 in Madison County Alabama, followed by a second marriage, this time to Paralee Keel on February 27, 1889; in the same county. On March 23, 1898 he marries Lucinda Hancock, who is residing with him on the 1900 Madison County Alabama census.
Between 1900 and 1910, William and Lucinda & children moved to Benton County Arkansas, and finally to Little River County, Arkansas, where William dies between 1921-1929. Lucinda dies sometime after the 1940 census in the same county. I have been unable to find place of burial for either of them.
William and Lucinda have the following children: Florence, William Jr., Claude, Harry Henry Eagle, Walter Lucian, Charles Edward and Harvey.
The only resource I have for William's mother is her name on the 1900 census (Ellen) and her birth date of January 1833 in Tennessee
There is a John Early Crabtree, born 1891 in AL, also listed on the 1900 census. He is enumerated as "brother's son". So far, he is a dead end- I have not found him again.
These are the only two clues I have to connect William to parents or siblings. There is a William J in the 1880 census of Madison Co Alabama, but the birth date and middle initial are wrong. I'm still researching him and his brother, but have not found any connection yet.
If you have any information about this family, please send me an email (located in the "about me" section on the sidebar.)
