Re: Phillippi's of Cripple Creek, Wythe VA

I can't tell you what business they were in but I also descend from Christian Phillippe and Catherine Dutton through their daughter, Elizabeth, who married Ambrose Crigger. Crigger is also spelled Creager, Cregar, Krieger, & etc. Something happened to her husband and she brought some of her children to Maury/Marshall County, Tennessee about 1864. One of her sons, Franklin, was killed in the Civil War there in VA. Not all her children came and some that did were married and had children and some weren't. They were called the "Crigger Wagon Train". It has always been a mystery that the family would like to find out, "what happened to Ambrose?" Ambrose's father was a blacksmith at Cripple Creek.
