Jim, which of your grandfathers children are you the son of? I am from the line of his daughter, Henrietta "Etta" from Detroit, MI. Can we exchange information?

McCracken Family History

Hi Ronnie,

Sorry it took so long for a reply, three years, just found your response. I took some time away from the family history due to work commitments, but back into discovering new info.
I hope this now finds you back in West Virginia. I have relocated to Naples Florida from Michigan.
As I stated before my line of McCrackens come from Philemon's first marriage, his daughter Henrietta "Etta" McCracken Deutsch (Kabel). She was lived in Detroit, Michigan. Blanche and Katie stayed with her from time to time. Katie lived in California and Denzil lived with her during some of his years working for Standard Oil. After looking for info, was there just two marriages for Philemon, some where I saw a third marriage to Elsie Beegle or is Elsie married to Philemon, Jr.
Anyway, thanks for the response, I hope we can contact again. contact: mgr7650 at
