|This is probably old news to those of us who have been following the Crippens for years. We all have gathered information regarding Crippens/Crippins participating in the Revolution, however, there may be individuals, who are just beginning their Crippen research. Besides, to complete the John Crippen information "set", this has to be included, otherwise it looks, like I forgot the Revolution.
Now, I know this may not cover all the John Crippens/Crippins in the Revolution and French/Indian War. I have yet to go back thru the Yahoo Groups, to see if any of you have submitted information there. Will go x-reference that at later date and add your information and your name here, if found on Yahoo Groups.
