Crane in Junius, Seneca County, New York.5 On 14 November 1829, Stephen B. Crane, along with Eunice, sold to Samuel Lay for $515 80 acres of land on lot 49 in Tyre, Seneca County, New York. This property was bounded on the south by land owned by Darrow Lay; on the west by lands owned by Stephen Crane and Moses M. Crane; on the north by lands owned by Stephen Crane and the heirs of James Ashbell; and on the east by Moses M. Crane's Marsh.6 She may be one of the inhabitants who appeared on the federal census of 1 June 1830 in the household of Stephen B. Crane in Tyre.7 Eunice Crane may be one of the inhabitants enumerated in the federal census of 1 June 1840 in the household of Stephen B. Crane in Tyre.8 On 8 June 1846, Stephen B. Crane, along with Eunice Crane, sold 40 acres of land in Brady Township, Kalamazoo County, Michigan.9 On 22 August 1846, Stephen B. Crane, along with Eunice Crane, sold 80 acres of land in Brady Township.10 On 9 July 1850 Eunice appeared on the 1850 federal census in the household of her husband, Stephen B. Crane, in Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo County, Michigan, along with their children, Ann, Martin, Ira and Orvis.11 On 24 July 1860 Eunice appeared on the 1860 federal census in the household of her husband, Stephen B. Crane, in Kalamazoo, along with their children, Joseph and Ira. Also living with them were Joseph's wife, Lucyette, and their children, Clinton, Horace and Mary. Lavinia Bastin is also listed as living in the home at that time, although it's not clear what her relationship to the rest of the family is, if any.4 All in all, the years of the American Civil War were not kind to Stephen and Eunice. Apart from the death of their young grandson in 1863, four of their sons served in the Union Army during the war, and two of them died during the conflict. Their oldest son died in November 1862 in Nasthville after sustaining fatal wounds. Then very near the end of the war, their son, Martin, was killed by a Confederate sharpshooter at Petersburg in March 1865. Another son, Ira, was wounded twice, while only their son, Joseph Delevan, survived the war relatively unscathed.12 On 23 June 1869, Stephen B. Crane, along with Eunice Crane, sold a lot previously owned by Martin Crane, in Kalamazoo, to Ann Williams.13 On 19 July 1870 Eunice appeared on the 1870 federal census in the household of her husband, Stephen B. Crane, in Kalamazoo, along with their daughter, Ann. Their granddaughters, Delia Williams and Mary Williams, also lived with them.14
