Here are the records of interest:
Caleb Crandall d. Aug 11, 1852, aged 72 years, 10 months, 28 days.
Elizabeth Crandall d. June 23, 1847, aged 67 years, 3 months, 16 days.
Melinda Bresse d. Aug 2, 1865, aged 82 years, 6 months, 3 days.
Elizabeth Crandall's maiden name of Bresee ("Brazee") was written in a history of Scotland County under the biography of James Dunn, who married Susannah Crandall, her daughter. Elizabeth and Caleb's son, Caleb George Crandall, was married to Almira Bresee. Melinda (Hawkins) Bresee was in the latter couple's household in 1860.
And yes, I'm related to the sculptor, though through a great grandmother, who was a second or third cousin of his. Both have ancestors in Valle parish (his birthplace) and Vigmostad parish (her birthplace), in southern Norway.
