Zora Alma [DeForest] NSDAR # 0766446 daughter of
Nellie [McMillan] daughter of
Zora Alma [Harris] daughter of
Ally Clementine [CRABB] daughter of
James Burton CRABB son of
Asa CRABB and Jerusha [Barnes]

My GG-grandfather Samuel Jackson CRABB was an older brother of Mrs Ally Clementine [Crabb] Harris Scroggins.
I BELIEVE that Zora Alma [DeForest] or her mother had Crabb family records that the rest of us do not as her Grandmother Ally Clementine was living next door to both of her parents when they died and at the very least they may know when Ally's parents died and where they were buried ?
We descendants of James Burton CRABB and Rachel [JONES] would be overjoyed to know whether they died in Wood Co TX or back home in Polk Co GA, when they died and/or where they are buried !!!

My heartfelt thanks for any information you can add or share on any of the persons named above.

P.S. As I have just found this NSDAR #, I have not sent for Zora's application and accompanying proof of descendancy yet........
