Notes:
* Leonard Crabb lived on a farm in Thornton, TX. He moved his family to New Orleans, LA abt. 1918. He went there to go to work for McCordell Cotton Co. but there was no work when he arrived so he took a job as a U.S. Deputy Marshall because there was a streetcar strike going. He moved to Houston, TX a year later and went to work as a streetcar conductor. In 1920 he bought a blacksmith shop in Kosse and stayed there until 1928. He moved his family to Waco for about a year in 1928 and then back to Houston where he took a job with Russ Mitchell and retired from there after 35 years. He moved to Elgin, TX after he retired and opened up a blacksmith shop which he worked in until about 1980 when he developed an eye desease and became blind. He loved reading Louis Lamore novels and would read them more than once. He had coon dogs, one in particular that he called Old Buck. Leonard and Effie had one son, Raymond Leslie d. Dec 21, 1989, a daughter, Annie Mae (deceased) and two daughters still living.
