I am looking for any and all information on the CRABILLS who are buried in the Springville Cemetery on route 23 between route 224 and Carey, Ohio. They lived around Alvada, Ohio. Henry Crabill was married to Nancy Dennis, I have no information on her family other than her name. His father was a David Crabill who was married to a Mary Anne. I have no other information on her. There was also a Samuel Crabill connected to them. All of these people are buried in the Springville cemetery. Henry Crabill and Nancy Dennis had a son David Crabill who was married to Mary Effie Evans who was born May 26, 1865 in Melmore, Ohio. Her parents were John Evans and Lucy Ashley. John Evans was born in Wales and Lucy Ashley was born in England. They are buried I am assuming in Melmore, Ohio. Did they have any other children besides Mary Effie? David Crabill and Mary Effie Evans had two sons, John G. B Krabill and Wilbert Henry Krabill. As you can see the spelling was changed. Wilbert Henry Krabill was my grandfather. He was married to Ollie Alfaretta Thomas. He died when my father was only 7 years old so my father did not have any information on his ancestors. Wilbert Henry Krabill, John G.B. Krabill, David Crabill and Mary Effie Crabill are all buried in the West Independence, Ohio cemetery on route 224 between Findlay and Tiffin, Ohio. I was born in Findlay, Ohio.

There are other KRABILLS buried in the West Independence cemetery and we were never able to find the connection between the KRABILLS and the CRABILLS. I live in Tucson, Arizona now and am not able to get back to Ohio and would like all of the information that I can get on my ancestors. I am doing a family tree for my children and would like for them to know more about their ancestors than I knew.
