One family story

  • Posted 3 years ago

    My father is Lewis Edward Critchfield Sr. His mother is Edith Amelia Simon Critchfield b. July 15, 1894 in Detroit Michigan, USA d. Dec. 25, 1992 in Sarasota. Edith had a brother Maxwell b. Feb 1, 1889 in London, Ontario, Canada. Edith’s father was Edward Simon b. March 17, 1860 in Langenbielan, Raiganbag, Germany. Edith’s mother was Ida Badett Simon b. March 10, 1867 in the same town as her husband.

    My grandmother Edith often said that her parents were Jews in Germany and that they came to the US because they were fleeing the Kaiser and wished to become US citizens so that they could not be ordered back to Germany. Edward Simon (my great grandfather) became a citizen on October 15, 1900.

    Edith married Reuben Critchfield and had four sons, Lewis, Harry, Reuben J., and Raymond.
