    Hi Bill,

    Thanks you very much for posting the information on Elbert Crabtree I sent you. So happy you are keeping the history of Indianola alive. Just a couple of revisions I need to make. Elbert (Bert) Crabtree was the younger brother of my great great grandmother, Lenore (Crabtree) Goben who was married to Charles M. Goben, the couple shown on this page. Elbert died as a result of the Spanish/American war and never married nor had children. Elbert, Charles and Lenore Goben, Lenore and Elbert’s parents, Henry and Daphne Crabtree, 7 of the 11 Crabtree children and both Goben daughters, Maude and Mable (Goben) Lambert ( my great grandmother) are all buried in the Indianola “cemetery. Just thought I’d clarify that. Thanks again, Alan
