Clair Zarges, Edith's granddaughter: My family records show that the family name for this family (David and Edith Giberson Crabb) was legally changed to Crabtree, 1910. (6)
Edith's middle name is given as "Ray" on her birth record. It is important to note that this record was filed in 1946 by a friend of the family, long after Edith's birth in 1880, as the birth was not reported within a year of when it took place. The report was part of New Brunswick Provincial Returns of Births and Late Registration, 1810-1906. (7) Elsewhere the middle name is spelled "Rae."
