Any guidance on finding the "ghost" in your tree? Josinah Crabtree Dew- enigma of the Dew Lineage

+7 votes

I know she exists because I have images of her gravestone but have not been able to connect with anyone who has found documentation of her nor have I found my own documentation. Stories suggest she was married (legal or otherwise) in Allegheny, Maryland around the revolutionary war then relocated with her husband to the Ohio Territory.

I noticed that Fold3 has free access to the Revolutionary War documents for a short while (just in case you hadn't been there looking for her husband).
Hi Melissa,

Josinah (Crabtree-695) and Thomas (Dew-188) are in my indirect lineage and I have created profiles for each of them (so do we have profiles that need merged?) I have some sources listed but other than the Find A Grave tombstone photos they don't list the sources they used to establish their facts.

No, I link to your profiles. I am just interested to see if anyone has ever come across any other documentation on her beyond the grave stone image. Most people I have communicated with don't have anything else either. It would be nice to find a census record or something that connects her to parents!


Thanks Dave
Have you found any wills or probate files for her husband or her children? She could be mentioned there.
