For years I have been mostly a silent list member. Silent, mainly because I seem to be the only person researching my line of BRADYs in DCO. I keep watching, searching and hoping. The other day I found my first new significant nugget of information in about 4 years - thanks to a list member. This leads me to ask for information on a surname that is new to me. However, I have seen this name mentioned frequently on the list. The name is CRUMRINE.

I am researching my gggg-grandparents, William and Elizabeth BRADY, who were

in DCO in the 1820's and 1830's (William probably came to Washington township

in 1817). William was a blacksmith in DCO and had 2 children while in DCO.


My new nugget of information provides William's wife's maiden name -

something I have been trying to find for years. William's wife was Elizabeth

CRUMRINE. Can anyone help me find information about her so I can chip away

at my brick wall?

Here is a portion of the document I recently found. The document starts out

talking about one of William's sons - Daniel.


"Daniel BRADY was born in Darke County, OH, March 12, 182, and is one of nine

children of WILLIAM and Elizabeth (CRUMRINE) BRADY, the former a native of

New Jersey, the latter of Pennsylvania. WILLIAM BRADY, when a young man, went

to Darke County, Ohio, where he worked at the blacksmith's trade for ten

years. In March 1841, he came to Newton County, Indiana, and settled in

Iroquois Township, buying what is known as the "Jacob Wright farm." He

afterward removed to Barton County, Kansas, where he now lives. â¤|"

(Indiana), 1883.



Other information:

William BRADY was born 22-NOV-1803 and Elizabeth (CRUMRINE) Brady was born

11-MARCH-1809. Should anybody want it, I have quite a lot of information on

William while he was in DCO and until his death. However, it is his pre-DCO

days and his parents that I am trying to find out about (who ARE his


Hoping to hear from some CRUMRINE researchers
