William Crippen - Non Military Data is to introduce and consolidate information pertaining to various William Crippens, who in general may or may not have been discussed on the Yahoo Crippen Group site. Because of the amount of data, the William Crippen lists will be broken out in Non-Military vs Military data. William Crippen info after 1899 will not be included, unless it seemed semi-pertinent. Census data not included, as Crippen Census, in the future, will be covered as a topic on the FamilyTrail parent website. There may be duplicate, but different, records for the same William Crippen. Any attempt on my part to consolidate multiple records for the same William Crippen would be speculation on my part. The intent of this entry is to record all the William Crippen records I have encountered, in the hope they may be of use to someone. As with any information pertaining to genealogy research, if it seems real, maybe it is, and maybe it's not. If it looks doubtful, question it, do more "digging", especially when the data is a family book. (nothing against family name books, but sometimes researchers appeared in too much of a hurry to fill in their missing information) This information is only provided as a guide.

Added following paragraph June 9th 2006:This topic is in need of serious update. When I began to merge my relatively Unknown Crippen database with Donna's Known Crippen database, many more William's are surfacing. The merge process is about 60% complete. When merge process is complete, I'll go back and extract all the William's and update the William Forum Topic.

William W. Crippen
Michigan, Oakland Co., Milford. (William W.'s biographical info is condensed for this entry). A dealer in agricultural implements. Mr. Crippen is one of the oldest settlers, having been born in Highland Twnshp. in 1842, Sept. 3rd. When he was 4 years old, his Mother removed from the farm to the Village of Milford, where he had the advantages of common school. (The next paragraph doesn't specifically state that Samuel was William W.'s Father in the Bio., however it appears that was the implication.) Below is word for word transcription of Samuel.

Samuel Crippen, a native of Vermont, grew to manhood amid the Green Mountains and became one of the first settlers in Highland Twnshp. Here he was engaged in farming until his death, which occurred not long after his removal. He married Margaret Porter, who was born in Ireland, near Londonderry, and whose Father, John Porter, settled in this country immediately after his immigration, and farmed in Bloomfield Twnshp. the rest of his life. Mrs. Crippen was left a widow with three children, and kept her family together rearing them carefully and giving them a practical education. She died in 1883, when more that fourscore and ten years old; she was a member of the Presbyterian Church. Her children are Mrs. Mary J. Bowman of Colon, Mrs. Fanny A. Dickinson of Hillsdale and William W. (end Samuel transcription).

William entered the Union Army at age 19. On his return home he engaged in the harness business. In 1872 he was engaged in farming and the went to Kalkaskia Co. in the Grand Travers country, taking up a homestead of 160 acres. Also had a grocery business in Kalkaskia. In 1882 he rented the farm and returned to Milford. The wife of Mr. Crippen bore the maiden name of Mary J. Stephens and is a native of Milford. Her Father, Willis Stephens was born in Ireland. Her marriage was solemnized in 1875 (contradicts marriage record immediately above). She and her husband have an adopted daughter, Fanny E.

William Crippen
Wisconsin. The following excerpt written by the daughter of William Crippen, recalling the family's move West. At this time the family was moving from Rockford (Boone) Co. Illinois to Rock Co. Wisconsin. "The following winter (1843) the country had an epidemic of typhoid fever, caused by the plowing up and decay of vegetation. Not many families escaped. We had one death & several very sick ones, which with Dr's bills and loss of property through dishonest dealings, Father was not able to meet the Spring payment. Having fallen into the hands of a shylock, who demanded the last ounce, & took it too...even to those noble horses that we all loved as members of the family & were parted with sobs & tears. After settling that deal Father went to Southern Wisconsin, found the wild land was being taken by people looking for homes, like himself. He settled on a timber claim near Sugar River in Rock Co. (the area which became Avon, WI.)
