Greene Co IL Cravens
Posted by: Dan Peterson Date: December 19, 2000 at 20:41:17
  of 707

I have a double Craven connection. James Hathaway Cravens md 1st Elizabeth Proctor then Mary Grimes. Came to Greene Co IL from Jessamine Co KY in the 1830's. His daughter Martha Permelia Cravens md Miles R. Smith in Greene Co and his son Columbus married Lucy ?
Their children Samuel Harrison Smith and Martha Ethel Cravens married in Iowa. Columbus was listed as a boatman on 1850 census of Greene Co is assumed dead as Lucy remarries Lyman Bushnell Sr in Greene County in 1851 in Greene Co. After his death she remarried James Monroe Gates of Greene Co and moves to Guthrie Co IA. Miles R. Smith dies before Sept 1852 when Martha remarries Elijah Purvis and moves to Story Co IA. Can anyone out there help me with either Columbus or Miles? Any Cravens info welcome.
Thank you.
Dan Peterson
