Husband's General Notes

Oral History from the Tate family states that Henry was abandoned and left by the well . Since no one knew his parents, he was named Henry Crank (because of the well crank handle). He was living with the Absolom Bowen (Boing) family for both the 1860 and 1870 census.


Wife's General Notes

Per 1900 Kanawha Co. WV census: she had given birth to 10 children, of whom 9 were still alive.
