KEY EVENTS:

     Lucyette was born on Sunday, 18 September 1836 in Vermont.5,6,7 Lucyette and Joseph Delevan Crane, son of Stephen B. Crane and Eunice McCarty, were married on Monday, 4 December 1905 in Battle Creek, Calhoun County, Michigan, by Rev. George B. Kulp. Benjamin and Mabel Nielson, both of Battle Creek, acted as witnesses. According to the marriage record, Joseph resided in South Bend at the time of their marriage, while Lucyette resided in Battle Creek. Despite their advanced ages, both were still working, he as a laborer, and she as a housekeeper. The record notes, almost certainly incorrectly, that both bride and groom had been married twice before.8 Lucyette died at age 73 on Monday, 7 March 1910 at 1206 McCartney Street in South Bend, St. Joseph County, Indiana.5,6
