The site worked for me. If you typed in the URL, try copying and pasting it instead (avoids typos). Also, AOL apparently has had problems the last couple of days - I couldn't even access at all for a while.

Try accessing (one directory up from the advertised URL). The page owner lists several surnames, including a few Crunks (under "C").

In case you still can't access it, the bottom line is the Crunk-Crank history page claims that Crunk is an "official" variant of Crank and goes on to give a history of Crank. The claim is that Crank is one of the oldest Anglo-Saxon surnames on record.

A Richard Crank is credited with "years of research" on the Crunk/Crank surname, with four others also credited with "years of hard work and contributions" to the research of these names:

Raymond Crank of Missouri
Raymond Crank of California
Nellie Mae Crank of Kansas
Marjorie Crunk (Anderson) of Texas.
