      [Who do these two grandchildren belong to? Must be Susan's and she must be Addie who married Pleas Crane. So that leaves Lizzie. Her death record shows her parents were George and Barbara, so perhaps she was not a grandchild - but why would Barbara have said she'd had 6 children and 5 were living?]
