My Paternal Grandparents

Welcome to the Carolyn Bost Crabtree Historical Research Site

 I  have been doing genealogy research for over forty years and I am now making available for sale some of the research I have been doing for so many years.  In addition to my own family research I have done quite a bit of research in the central Kentucky area, especially in the Boyle/Mercer/Lincoln County area.  I am available to do research on your family names, historic homes, or other historical categories.  I am also available for speaking events or workshops.  To see a list of topics that I have done in the past, click on the Research-Services link above.


A book named The Descendants of Alexander Caldwell in America is available.  The book is over 412 pages of genealogical and historical information on the Caldwell family and related lines, plus an index.  Some other family lines mentioned in the book are Wickliffe, Clemens, Adams, Cromwell, Henderson, Irvine, Mann, Marsh, McChord, Mitchell, McGavock, Richey, Rue, Seawright, Tarkington, and many others.  The cost of the book is $53 which includes tax.  With added shipping and handling the book cost will be $60.  For more information contact Carolyn Crabtree.


I have been scanning some historical records and producing books of these.

The one I have available now is the 1909 Danville City Directory originally compiled by Calvin Morgan Fackler.  It contains the names, addresses, occupations, and family members of all residents in Danville, Kentucky in 1909 and has been a very helpful tool for Danville research.  It also contains business, organizational and social information for the town of Danville in 1909.  The book cost is $25 plus tax of $1.50 without shipping and handling.  With shipping, handling and tracking by book rate the entire cost is $32. 


While doing my own research there are several books that I found helpful but very difficult to use because they were not indexed.  I have produced indexes for the following books:

Index for The House of Rochester in Kentucky by Agatha Rochester Strange

Index for The Newspaper Story of a Town: A History of Danville, Kentucky by Richard W. Griffin

Index for A Chronicle of The Old First Presbyterian Church, Danville, Kentucky by Calvin Morgan Fackler

Index for An American Branch of the Mitchell Family of Scotland and Its Marjor Allied Familes by John Joel Mitchell

If you are interested in purchasing any of these indexes, the cost is $10 for each without shipping or handling.  With shipping, handling and tracking by book rate the cost will be $14 each.
