Margaret and Alton McCrary were our neighbors on Item Ave. in the Crichton community (Now part of Mobile) in the latter 1930's. They had two sons, Billy (possibly William) and Dewitt. Billy was my age (I am 72). My mother communicated with Mrs. McCrary for years after we moved from Item Ave. around 1939-40. My sister thinks she recalls that Alton McCrary drove a streetcar. I recall hearing at one time that Billy was a bus driver for the City of Mobile. Dewitt had a used car lot on Highway 98 west of Crichton about five or so miles from Semmes, Al. There is now a Dean McCrary car dealership in Mobile but I do not know if there is any connection. My mother was born in 1894 and I believe she was at least ten years older than Mrs. McCrary. You give Margaret McCrary's birth year as 1888, so this may be a different family.
