|Record of newspaper occurances of CRIPPIN/CRIPPEN name, hopefully of use to someone. Feel free to add your own newspaper accounts as a reply when you encounter the Crippen variations. Could be a difficult list if combined together, so will try to break out by geographic areas, as a new topic. Not in chronological order, transcribed as written (old script f converted to s when appropriate). Scan copies to members of the Crippen Bulletin Board available on request.
