In Reply to: PEARCY/CRADDOCK - Laclede Co., MO. & VA migration by Billie Teague of 822

(The following info. was given to me by Joseph D. Craddock, who is researching his Caswell Craddock/Lucy F. Pearcy line and who I consider to be very knowledgeable in his research.):

"Lucy F. Pearcy's mother was Lucinda A. Craddock. She was the daughter of Asa L. Craddock SR - Nancy Pitts. Lucy had two brothers: JOhn D. D. (Tink) Pearcy and Francis Marion (Tump) Pearcy. After Lucy and Caswell died, their sons, George Francis (my Grandfather) and James Alfred were raised by their Uncle Richard R. Craddock. Then after my grandfather, George Francis Craddock died (when my father was only 5) his brother, James Alfred was found by the Laclede County Probate Court to be a "person of unsould mind." His maternal Uncle Francis Marion Pearcy (Lucy's brother) was appointed by the court as guardian and curator of his personal estate.

Interesting sidelight: George Francis Craddock and James Alfred Craddock are both shown as 5 years of age (twins?) in the 1870 census while their parents were still living. After their parents died and they were with their Uncle (1880 census) their ages were listed as 15 for George and 13 for James. On their gravestones it lists George birth 1865 and James birth as 1863. Casell and Lucy were married 1864 so I tend to believe they probably were twins born in 1865 but can't prove it.

Four of Edmond's children were missing on your listing of 1850 census. George W. (youngest son), William Berry (oldest shown in 1870 census and in the 1880 census as Cradic), Eli R (shown with mother in 1860 census), and John Edwin (believe it is him shown in 1850 census in the home of Alfred Brownfield.)

Caswell's daughter, Lucy B., married Eliijah Duncan and died in giving birth (don't know if the child lived). Eliijah then married her sister, Elizabeth. Caswell's daughter Ann M. married George Smith. They had 8 children (7 died either in infancy or as a child). One child survived and he was the father of my hometown dentist. Nancy Jane married William Harry Wair and Mary Jane married John T. Wilson.

William Pearcy was the brother of Francis W. Pearcy, father of my Lucy F. Pearcy. I believe the Shenandoah (listed in the census info. in my Craddock/Pearcy posting-Billie Teague)was Sherwood (instead of Shenandoah - listing was hard for me to read.). Don't know Bennet Pearcy (as shown in census info. - Billie Teague), but Sophia shown is Sophia Woodward, widow of Boswell Pearcy and they were the parents of William and Francis W. Pearcy.

John R. Craddock was the son of Asa L. Craddock - Nancy Pitts. His wife was Martha Pearcy, sister of William and Francis and daughter of Boswell Pearcy. Don't know anything about the Barnhart children, Elizabeth and Francis. (that I listed in the census info. - Billie Teague)Start was the brother of John R. and son of Asa L. Craddock.

#44 (of my census posting - Billie Teague) Craddock, Asa SR., 60, belongs with the family below: Nancy (his wife and sister to Elizabeth Pitts (Edmond's wife) and some of their children.)

*In Notes: Edmond is shown in 1830 census in Pittsylvania County, VA as "Edmund". Asa is shown right after him. The 1840 census Wilson County, TN shows Edmond as Edmond "Cradock"."

Thank you,
