In Reply to: Ehrl R. Crandall, Sr in Branch County, Michigan by Danny Wilber of 427

I didn't find the parents names, but got the complete birth date and this death record shows his residence as Union Twp., Branch County. So if he died in Battle Creek, Calhoun County, maybe he was visiting or traveling.
Union City, is right on the county line of Branch Co. and Calhoun County. If Ehrl was taken to a hospital, it most likely would have been in Battle Creek.
Now that you have the complete birth date, and you say he was born in Adrian, why not order the birth certificate which should show the parents names and where they were born.

Birth Date: 09 December 96
Death Date: 13 September 75
Gender: Male
Residence: Union, Branch, Michigan

Source: website, Michigan deaths 1971-1996 website.
Death Record.

On the same website, this Crandall person died only 3 days later than Ehrl R. Crandall, and he was living in Battle Creek. -
Birth Date: 01 February 94
Death Date: 16 September 75
Gender: Male
Residence: Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan

Here is the Social Security Death Record, also showing Ehrl's residence as Union City, MI. Also confirms birth date.....
Name: Ehrl Crandall
SSN: 363-28-2250
Last Residence: 49094 Union City, Branch, Michigan, United States of America
Born: 9 Dec 1896
Died: Sep 1975
State (Year) SSN issued: Michigan (Before 1951 )

In the 1930 census, Ehrl lived in Quincy township, Branch Co., MI.
Wife Isabelle, kids Leota L., Lloyd E., Leah L., LeRoy K., Laurence B. and Lorene L. Ehrl & Isabelle had been married about 15 years.
Ehrl lists his parents both born in Michigan. They live on Cross Road not on a farm, Ehrl owns the home. He is a Laborer-odd jobs, and he has no military record listed on this census.
To find his parents names, the 1900 census should have them IF we can find a listing for them in Lenawee co.

On the draft registration card, Ehrl R. Crandall, age 21, living at 100 N. Fremont St., Coldwater, MI.
Born Dec 9, 1896, in Adrian, MI.
His father born Adrian, MI.
Ehrl was employed by Wolverine Portland Cement Co., Coldwater, MI.
Wife Isabelle Crandall, same residence as Ehrl. Signed by Ehrl R. Crandall.
Local Board, Banch Co., Coldwater, MI. dated June 5, 1918.
Blue eyes, can't read hair color, either light or dark brown.
Registration # 69, Serial No. 69.

Your Ehrl R. Crandall and Isabelle are buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Quincy, (Branch Co.) Michigan, listed in the cemetery book. There is a note in the book saying Isabelle is buried in Union City, but transcriptions of the gravestones must have listed her name along eith Ehrl in lot 644.
