Surname: Crandall

The Crandall surname is part of Rosmer P. Kerr's heritage. His ninth great-grandfather is thought to be:
  • Nicholas Crundell (1) [see Crandall Family Genealogy Forum #1611 by Paul Gifford].
  • Nicholas Crundell (2), whose wife's name was Elizabeth.
  • James Crandell [see Hey, Elder John... by Earl P. Crandall].
  • Elder John Crandall (1617/18-1676). His wife was said to be Mary Opp, but apparently this name is now thought to be incorrect [see Crandall Family Genealogy Forum #1611 by Paul Gifford]. In any case, Elder John and his wife are thought to be my eighth great-grandparents.
  • Reverend Joseph Crandall (about 1661-1737) married Deborah Hubbard Burdick about 1681. Joseph and Deborah are said to be my seventh great-grandparents. [See The Story of Joseph Crandall].
  • John Crandall (about 1682-1767) and his wife Hannah are thought to be my sixth great-grandparents.
  • Elijah Crandall (1734-    ) married Mary Auchmuty on 28 March 1754 at Westerly, Rhode Island. They are my fifth great-grandparents.
  • Ruth Crandall (1771-1837) married William M. Pettis about 1795. They are my fourth great-grandparents.
The website of The Crandall Family Association is the place to go for the most current research into the Crandall ancestry. My other source of information is the 1949 genealogy by John Cortland Crandall which, based on current research, has errors.
