|My Grandparents Marie Estelle Preston and Herbert Thomas Crippen|
|Laura Corbin-Crippen |
|Griffin should be Crippen. |
Also listed my grandfather's 3 older siblings and my Uncle Theodore Corbin, Laura's brother and his wife.
My Aunt Louise later said to my mother, "I didn't want to say anything but I heard that there were 3 sets of Crippen's". I suppose all stemming from George. I guess that is too embarrassing to tell a stranger as its a little awkward blogging about it. But as genealogist we all know that every family has its secrets and the only way we can ever truly know who's who is to talk about it and tell the truth. It really makes you question what other secrets there are. Now I have an idea why our ancestors don't like to give information and don't want to speak on the past. (Below are my grandfather's siblings. Charles Crippen not shown)
I haven't started to research the Sterling name yet, because I was raised as a Crippen. We were never raised around or known of any other Crippen's except for my grandfathers siblings and their decendants. We don't know any older family on the Crippen side except for George, but still, raised a Crippen. I've thought about searching the Sterling's but not really sure if I want to know about them yet, even though that is my heritage, I might not like what I find.
I know of Laura Corbin and the Corbin ancestors, I will blog about the Corbin family from Princess Anne Maryland, Snowhill, Salisbury and Philadelphia PA at another time.
