William CRAVEN & Elizabeth ROBERTS
Posted by: Steve (ID *****2315) Date: May 12, 2002 at 17:40:01
  of 2288

My gr-gr-gr-grandparents were William CRAVEN, Jr (b. 04/26/1792) and Elizabeth ROBERTS (b. 06/04/1787). They were both born in Bucks Co., PA and were married on 02/28/1811. Our family Bible lists 7 children for them, including my gr-gr-grandfather, David Roberts CRAVEN (b. 06/22/1819, d. between 1880-1900). On 02/24/1848 David married Elizabeth GROVE or HANNABERY (07/30/1827-12/27/1911). William & Elizabeth also had a son, William III (b. 09/28/1813) who, on 05/29/1844, married Angeline LAMB.

This CRAVEN family seems to have all but disappeared. I cannot find any of them in the 1850 or 1860 census records. I know it is possible that William & Elizabeth and William & Angeline could have all died before 1850. I know William & Elizabeth had a son die in 1843 and another die in 1855, and neither of the notices indicate that the parents were already deceased. David & Elizabeth finally show up in the 1870 census in Philadelphia.

Any help would surely be appreciated.
