We are just beginning to do some research on my mother's side of the family. Our great grandfather was John Clinton Crabbs, and his father was John Crabbs. They go back to Abraham Krebs and Thankful Austin/Lyons and then to Philip Heinrich Krebs from Germany. Maybe we're in the same line? They are from Pa, Ohio, and Michigan. I'd especially love to go back further than Philip Heinrich Krebs.
