The 1940 census shows them both alive and living in Jefferson Clolrado. They had at least two children, Ruth Williams, born 1912 and my Grandfather, Harold Earl Williams, born 1906. Harold was married to Elvira A. Williams, born 1906, another wall. I've looked at the usual websites, FamilySearch.com, Rootsweb, etc. with no luck. ANy info, clues hints, or at this point vague shrugs are welcome.
- They are buried in St. Peter's in Clermont...not sure when they arrived but they are in several censuses. He apparnetly dug graves from time to time but was probably also a farm laborer. She is definitely from County Kerry..I think it is likely that he was too. I never saw any children listed. I don't have my records with me as they are on my broken computer...I believe he was born around 1830.
His name was spelled different ways..Bart, Batt, Crean, Crehan Creehan.
It is possible he might be related to my ggm Eliza Crehan, who came somehow to US as an orphan..we heard by herself and she never heard from family again, but a little death story about her says she was from County Kerry and came with relatives. I suspect that she is related to Batt and they reunited in the 1870s or so...
From looking at County Kerry records, a large number of Creans seemed to come from Annascoul..the famous explorer Tom Crean did.
Any help would be appreciated. mg
