In Reply to: Re: Judie Ann Crate 1806 Penn by John Crates of 83

John, My information indicates that the village was founded by Charles Crate(s) and friends by the name of AAron. Apparently, these families traveled west from the Bally, PA area to Limestone Cty, PA area and settled there. After the settlement was established Charles Crate(s)is supposed to have gone back to the Bally area and brought his father Phillip back with him. In any event, that is what my sources in Crates have told me.

There are descendants of the Crate(s) and AAron families still living there. But as near as I know, there are no individuals by the name of Crate(s)in Crate(s). It is a small village of what I estimate to be about 100 souls with a very active Catholic Church there. There are a number of Crates living in a larger town just to the south of Crates. As soon as I can get to a map of PA, I will write back as to the name of the town. I also will try to get the date when the town was named.

More later, Charles Crate Cr8Clan@swbell.net
