To Carroll's family. This seems sudden to me. I just saw Carroll at the shoe store in Harrisburg a short while back. I engaged him in conversation about the great '55 basketball team that he played on. He told me stories that I had never heard before, and I had questioned Al Gunzel at length. I worked for Carroll at the cabinet factory and worked with him with Peabody. He was a very good electrician. Fond memories. Bob Hill

Sorry for your loss. I understand that all Cranes in Ridgway, could be related to all greens or Craynes or Crains because of accent or misreading signatures, etc. The original names could all be connected.In case we are, my father was from Ridgway. The last Crayne that lived there( to pass away) was my Uncle Hobert Crayne. My father was Carlos Crayne's Son, Carl J. Crayne from Norris City, Illinois. I am Carol Lynn Crayne Roy from New Haven . So if by chance we are related, our condolences. We used to see a" Crane" home on the corner on our way to the red onion restaurant from time to time.
