Research Note

     We are not sure of Ira's whereabouts between the time of his discharge from the Union Army and the birth of his son in Owosso in 1888.
     Some researchers may question our association of Ira Crane, son of Stephen B. Crane, with the person freqeuntly referred to in records as Ira M.D. Crane, however we think the majority of documentation would suggest that they are one and the same. That said, while one record - record of burials at Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio indicates that Ira Crane M.D. is buried there, we are confident that this is an error in which his middle initials were confused with a title - the Ira Crane who died in Cleveland at that time was known as a mattress weaver.
