Cripe Family Genealogy Forum
Mitzi and Justin, I just read your post about Oliver Francis and Cora Cripe from Cerro Gordo. One of the children you mentioned that stayed in the area - Vernon - was my Grandpa. He died in May of '81. There are still alot of my family in Cerro Gordo, but I don't know if they would be able to tell you what you need to know. As far as what I can remember, most of my Grandpas's brothers and sisters died before he did. I don't remember where Uncle Galen lived, but Uncle Francis lived in Jacksonville Florida but the rest of the kids were in Cerro Gordo. The twin girl you didn't have a name for was Aunt Marie. There was also Aunt Mildred and Aunt Midge, I'm not sure if Ira is Uncle Francis or not. I only knew him as Uncle Francis. My Grandmother is getting on in years and has had some health problems and her memory isn't what it used to be. I know that my Aunt Lana - my Mom's sister - or my Mom could probably help to answer your questions or at least get you pointed in the right direction. Please feel free to email me and we can share what information we have.
