Isaac Fordyce Crago and Susannah Browning. Susannah Olliezona was born in 1871 in Noble County, Indiana. She lived in Noble County for a few years after her birth but moved with her parents to Labette County, Kansas at some point around the year 1879. She was found in the census in June of 1880 living with her parents in Fairview Township in Labette County.Susannah Olliezona Crago was the fifth child of
Olliezona is such a unique name, isn't it? Ever since the first time I saw it I've liked it. It rolls off the tongue. Because of the sound of her name I always pictured her as a sweet little blonde child, her two pig-tails bouncing as she played in the Kansas sunshine. Silly old sentimental me.
But she got sick one day......maybe. Maybe she got injured somehow, or maybe she had a congenital problem. Who knows. But at some point between the time of the 1880 census in June and December of 1880, this sweet little girl died, and most likely in Fairview Township. We'll never know for sure what killed her but as her mother Susannah's date of death was 1881, is it possible that the two were victims of some sort of illness?
Little Olliezona was buried at the Labette City Cemetery in Labette County, Kansas. Rest in peace, sweetheart.
