John was the second son of TW Flannagan and Clara May Smith, born on April 3rd, 1905 in St. Paul, Minnesota. John was tall and athletic and participated in both baseball and football in high school. Unlike his gregarious brother, Sam, John was a quiet person, but he could get excited in a conversation with his brothers and when reminiscing about great plays such as in professional football. He went to school in St. Paul at St. Paul Murray and St. Anthony Park University High School. He also went to the University of Minnesota for 2 years. He met and married Bernice Palmer, had one child, Thomas William, and ran a filling station, Standard Oil in St. Anthony Park. His sister-in-law, Deane, came up with the idea for him to start a Gamble store. With financial backing from his brother, Sam, and from his mother, John opened a Gamble store in Wahoo, Nebraska. Tom lived with him in an apartment above the store and in spite of his dad's strictness, ran wild in the streets of Wahoo. Bernice didn't fit in and did not think much of the small town life. After their divorce, John married Carol H. Anderson from Nebraska in Wahoo January 6th, 1943.

Because John was drafted into the Army, he had to give up his store. He was at the maximum age to be drafted. He served 3 years and achieved the rank of First Sergeant. After the service, John accepted a position as wholesale hardware salesman for Paxton and Gallagher in Omaha until he got the Ainsworth territory with Hinkle and Joyce. He was on the road from Monday through Friday for many years, covering a huge territory across the state of Nebraska.

In 1970 John and Carol moved to Ashland where more of her relatives lived. John enjoyed reading, golf, trap shooting, hand loading shells, restoring old guns, fishing and hunting. He talked a lot about gardening and enjoyed sports and history. He was a member of the Ashland Gun Club, The Ashland American Legion Club, Ashland Country Club, Post #129 and John also served on the Ashland Planning Commission.

After only one year of retirement (March of 1984), John died on August 3, l985 at age 80 due to liver cancer and is buried in the Ashland Cemetery.

Larry was born and grew up in Leeds, North Dakota on the farm in a house that his father helped to build just 6 miles from Leeds. He attended K through 12 at the Leeds School where he excelled in academics, graduating valedictorian of his class in 1965. Larry went on to college at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, where he was president of his fraternity, TKE. He graduated with a Chemical Engineering degree. He was interning at Potlatch in Cloquet when he met Sue at the paper company staff house where she was working as a maid. They both attended ASU in Phoenix where he earned an MBA and started working for Motorola.

Due to complications from his diabetes, Larry and Sue left Arizona, traveled the country and ended up settling in North Dakota, farming first with relatives and then eventually on their own, growing wheat, barley, flax and sunflowers.

Larry was active in the Leeds community, where he belonged to the Lions Club and was treasurer for the Catholic Church.

Larry was a "brittle" or Type 1 diabetic, having been diagnosed at age 3. He would joke about opting for a surgery every year to maintain his body and said he loved being in the hospital, having all the gorgeous young nurses waiting on him hand and foot. Larry had several close medical calls including a stroke and blindness for an extended period of time. He lived with excruciating nerve pain and stumbling due to numbness in his feet and lower legs. In spite of all that, you would never know he had a serious medical problem, because he looked perfectly healthy, tall, dark, and handsome and always ready with hilarious insights and jokes. Larry was well known in Leeds and throughout our family for his funny stories.

In the summer of 1998, Larry developed a foot/leg infection that got out of control and resulted in an amputation of one of his legs below the knee. He was in the process of being fitted with a bionic foot and seemed to be in the best of spirits when one night he had a blood sugar chemical imbalance problem and a seizure apparently stopped his heart. He lived for several days in a comatose state and then passed away on August 24th in a hospital in Minot, North Dakota with his wife, Sue, his daughter, Emily, son, Andy, mother Bernie and sister, Lois at his side. Larry's funeral was ecumenical at the Catholic Church in Leeds with his selections of music and poetry. Larry was buried in the Leeds Lutheran Cemetery alongside the road to his family farm.

Larry often joked that he wanted his grave to say, "I told you I was sick." He left our whole family with many great memories, especially, an example of a positive way to handle a difficult life situation.

Note on name: "Ulysses Grant Crewson" as given on passport application by son George Grant Crewson dated 18 Nov 1920. (Maybe granddad was having fun renaming his father after the Union general and president -Thomas Allen Crewson)

Cause of death: Consumption (tuberculosis)

Two small documents likely produced for his funeral, saved by son George, give us the following information:

"In Memory of Grant Crewson who died at his late residence on Railroad Street, Nov. 4th, 1890, aged 25 years. His life was full of faith and piety, and his death was full of glorious peace. For a number of years he has been a member of the M. E. church. Greatly will he be missed by church and family. While it has pleased our Heavenly Father to remove from our midst our worthy brother, and while we bow in humble submission to God who doeth all things well, and our saddened hearts grieve at the loss of our brother, yet we feel assured that our loss is his gain. May his example be engraved upon our hearts and be as a shining light to guide the feet of those left behind."

Sleep on, brother, thy work is done,
The mortal pang is past.
Jesus has come and born thee home
Beyond the stormy blast.

Why should we mourn our brother's loss
Since death to him is bliss?
He lives again; in faith he died,
And Christ has promised this.

Another firm paper document, the same material and size of the photo reads:

"In Loving Remembrance of
Grant E. Crewson
Died Nov. 3, 1890
Aged 25 Yrs. 4 Mos."

One less at home!
The charmed circle broken---a dear face
Missed day by day from its usual place,
But cleansed, saved, perfected by grace,
One more in heaven.

One less on earth!
Its pain, its sorrow and its toil to share,
One less the pilgrim's daily cross to bear,
One more the crown of the blessed to wear,
At home in heaven!

Lillie Mae Rigby grew up with an alcoholic father so she was strongly opposed to any use of alcohol in their home in Sebring, Ohio or in her husband's business establishments. She was convinced that hospitals were only places to go to die so she gave birth to all of her children at home. 8 of her 13 children died at birth or shortly after.

Lillie Mae Rigby married Walter Samuel Crewson; they built a house practically next door to her church, Church of Christ, where she taught the Ladies Sunday School well into her 70s. Lillie was a "pillar" of her church. She was always very cheerful and full of fun despite the hard times and inspired her grandchildren to have a strong Christian faith.

The first and only time she went to the hospital she was in a diabetic coma and died. At the time she was in her late 70s or early 80s.

Walter Samuel "Buddy" Crewson was born 1-1-1903 in Sebring, Ohio in his parent's home. Walter worked in the pottery factory in Sebring until he went to college. Because his mother, Lily Mae Rigby Crewson, had saved money for college, he went to Kent State where he excelled academically in spite of working nights in a tire factory. At Kent State University he earned a BS degree in Geography, then, with a scholarship,went on to earn a MS degree in Economics at the University of Chicago. Years later he earned a doctorate degree in Education from New York University where he had the highest grade point average in the history of the school, evidenced by a plaque in the lobby of the school.

Walter Samuel started out as a one room school teacher in Navarre, Ohio. Then he taught high school economics in Massillon, Ohio where his wife, Dorothy Doxsee was an English teacher and his son, Walter Frederick John Crewson was born. He was soon promoted to principal of Massillon High School, then to Superintendent of schools in Barberton, Ohio, Hamilton, Ohio and eventually, Levittown, New York. He was invited to work in Albany, New York for Governor Rockefeller and later accepted the position of Associate commissioner of Education for the State of New York, a position he held for 13 years, 1956-1969.

Walter Samuel retired in La Jolla, California. He died at age 85 in 1988 after a bad crash with a group of motorcycles in California.

Worked for the U.S. Bureau of Standards, Washington D.C. invented the concept of OHM, a unit of electrical resistance.

Graduated in Electrical Engineering from West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. A brilliant man, very popular, polite, great humor.

1910 Thesis in WVU card catalogue by author, W378.7541, Eng 'g "Design of a gravity water supply system for Morgantown, West Virginia. Staff was unable to locate a copy of this in 2000. Ann Crewson Flannagan


Well not quite, regarding invention of the ohm. Georg Ohm published Ohm's Law e=iR in 1827, and the ohm was official unit of resistance by 1881. Charles Moon co-authored a work "An absolute determination of the ohm" in 1936. And he invented a tool for producing precise inductors, documented at NIST in 1938. Perhaps these are the source of that credit.

The following notice appeared in newspapers of 2 Feb 1953: "Pioneer of the Ohm, Charles Moon Dies - Washington, Feb. 1 (AP) - Dr. Charles Moon, who helped establish the Ohm as the international standard of measuring electrical resistance, died of a heart attack Saturday night while trimming a tree in his back yard. Dr. Moon was head of the inductance section of the U.S. Bureau of Standards, where he had worked since 1918." -Thomas Allen Crewson

93 Came to America in 1719 via Krefeld, Germany, with his wife Lena (Traut), in the first group of German Baptists (or Dunkers) to come to America, led by Peter Becker. The brethren settled in PA because it was a colony well-known for its religious tolerance and Mennonites had already settled there at the invitation of William Penn.He was a member of the Krefeld (or Creyfelt) congregation in Germantown, named after the town from which they exited Germany. With this congregation he communed in the first lovefeast in America on Dec. 25, 1723. M.G.

99 William at the Stone or William atte Stone; b. ca. 1365, d. 1430 or 1431. A yeoman tenant of the Manor of Bovills, Ardleigh, Essex, England.

Probably a great-grandson of Walter atte Stone. From this William atte Stone the line of descent is traced down through seven recorded generations to Deacon Gregory and Deacon Simon Stone, the colonists of New England in 1635. As William atte Stone is the earliest member of the family found located in Ardleigh, where some of his descendants resided for over two centuries, it is well to present here a short description of this parish. Ardleigh is a rural parish in Tendring Hundred, co. Essex, about four miles northeast of Colchester and about fifty-five miles north east of London, with a railway station on the main Great Eastern line from London through Colchester to Ipswich. The parish is about three miles in length and about two and a half miles in width, covers about five thousand acres, and has now a population of about fifteen hundred. Agriculture, as for centuries, is still the occupation of nearly all the inhabitants, the chief crops being wheat, barley, oats, and hay. The parish church, dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin, is a fine structure of stone in excellent condition, consisting of chancel, nave, and aisles, all rebuilt in 1883, and an ancient south porch and an embattled tower with six bells, restored at the same time, which were originally built about 1450. The parish registers are preserved from 1555. The parish existed in Anglo-Saxon times and its name was derived from the Anglo-Saxon words "ardh" (high) and "leigh" (pasture). There are four ancient manors in the parish, which were in the fees of four Norman feudal barons after the conquest, as appears by the Domesday survey of 1086, viz: Roger de Ramis, Hugh de Gournay, Robert Gernons, and Geoffrey de Magnaville. These four manors about a century later became known respectively as Pigotts, Bovills, Moyse Hall, and Martells, from the names of the manorial families who possessed them. At a later period several of the farms in these manors became known by the names of the yeoman families who leased and occupied them from the fourteenth century, in some cases for several generations.
