Lafayette1 Crethers1

Birthabt 1858
He and Lizzie married in 1884 and had a daughter, Mabel.  Their marriage certificate only says he was at least 21 yo at the time, placing his birth before 1864.  Daughter Mabel's death certificate provided his place of birth.  While not definitive, I believe some census records for a Lafayette Crouthers/Cruthers, son of Hosea/Hoesa/Housa (1860, 1870 and 1880)  is probably this Lafayette.  Those three records give his age as 2, 10, and 19 which would place his birth about 1858/1860.

A 1893 marriage license between a Lafayette M. Crouthers and Mary/May Smith appears to be this same individual.  The signatures on the two forms are very similar even though the last names are clearly spelled differently.  Also confusing the spelling of his surname is his daughter's obituary which has it as Crowthers.
