Stories

While I was stationed at Sheppard AFB, Texas, near Wichita Falls, I looked in the local phonebook for any Craycrofts that may have been in the area. I found a listing for Ben Craycroft and immediately called him. A woman answered the phone, who I later guessed to be his niece, and I asked to speak with Mr. Craycroft, explaining who I was. Ben came on the line and we spoke briefly about family and possible connections. I don't remember if he said where he had been born, but I asked him when his family had moved to Texas. He replied "My Daddy moved down here after the Civil War." Many years later, after I learned more about Ben and his family, I determined that when I spoke with him Ben was about to turn 80 years old. I also learned that it was sometime after October, 1888 that his father Frank and the family moved to Texas. Prior to that time they had lived in Missouri. (Robert L. Craycroft, February 27, 2005)
