This family is a little confusing for me. I have always believed that George's middle name was Edward.
But recently I have discovered that it is Edgar.
And as for his wives did he have two or three.
Now take a look at this obituary and tell me is it Eliza Arminta Allison or Minnie Schuman.
And take a look at this and you can see why I would be confused. Link
Thanks to Stanley Bumgardner for straightening out the mess of misinformation I had on this family.
In an e-mail from Stanley dated April 16, 2007 he writes the following.
I can help you clarify the family of George Edgar Craigo--the son of Harrison (Hack). Minnie Schuman and Eliza Allison are the same person. She was born Eliza Arminta Schuman in Wetzel County then adopted by an Allison family near Poca. She's referred to variously as Minnie or Eliza (and with both last names). Margaret is actually Ruby Macel Craigo, my grandmother. She married Stanley D. Bumgardner.
And in another e-mail dated April 22, 2007 Stanley writes.
George E. Craigo's middle name was Edgar.
