Last update of this site: 10 February 2016
This page was established with a preliminary report on some fairly recent research conducted on the ancestry of Thomas Howell Craton (check under Features below). While not all the information in this report has been completely authenticated, much of the data will help shed more light on his origins and parentage and hopefully will elicit further discussion and research.
Feedback is welcome from all researchers interested in our family lines. Although I cannot always promise a speedy response, I do (eventually) reply to all serious inquiries.
If you have old photographs, diaries, journals, or other personal artifacts or information about our ancestors, please let me know. As this page progresses I would like to try to publish as much of this type of material as possible. Sadly, although the site has been online now for eight years, very little new information has been submitted. I am especially interested in locating a photograph or painting of Thomas Howell Craton. I was contacted a number of years ago by someone who claims to know of such a painting and who promised to send a photograph of it to use on the website, but nothing has ever materialized. If you have such a photo or know to whom I should write to get more information about this painting, I would be deeply grateful.
