[page 10]


Dear Ms. Green:
    I fouond your post card among some material and wanted to inquire about your progress regarding the CRYE name.  I hahil from Crye heritage in Blount County, TN.  Please update me with information that you have obtained regarding this strand of CRYE and the origens of the name.

P.A. Crye

Ms. Crye:
    I think you will find this issue very interesting as I have included a partial manuscript shared from Larry Crye.  I will be happy to send you the information that I have regarding this line.  Thank you so much for your letter and additional addresses.

Hi Anita:
I would like to receive a copy of your newsletter and a copy of the family tree questionnaire which I will fill out.  I will look forward to hearing from you. 

    On the 1870 census you show Susan L. (Age 24) and George W. Crisp as living with William Crye, family of Hugh H.  There is a script note that Hugh married Susan who was the daughter of Sarah and Rice Crisp/  On the 1880 census, Hugh is married to Susan A (age 25).  The ages and middle initials do not match up.  I find this curious, don't you?  I you have any  ideas, let me know.

Hi Anita:
    I don't know if anyone else has answered your question or not, but here goes.  The Cherokee people had a sort of "clan" system within the tribes that followed the mother's linnage.  There was the dog (actually wolf), bird, deer, wild potato, paint, blue and long hair.  One member of each clan was "appointed" to Cherokee council who ruled over the entire tribe.  Out of the seven clans each person had close ties with four of the clans, namely their mothers, father's grandmother's and grandfather's clans.  People were encourraged to marry someone from one of their grandparents clans.
