Title : Crane-Goff family papers, 1892-1999 (bulk: 1975-1999)
Physical Description : 1 linear ft. (1 box).
Summary :

The Crane-Goff family was active in the Danville area, serving as library trustees, donating a window to the Danville Congregational Church in memory of Eva Crane Goff (1891-1983), and active in the Danville Historical Society and the Peacham Academy Alumni Association. The family settled in the area in the early 1800's, but much of the collection details their activities in the late twentieth century.

The collection contains material detailing the Crane-Goff, Fisk-Crane, and Bacon family genealogies. The emphasis in the Crane-Goff section is on family members living in the twentieth century; family members in the first half of the nineteenth century receive mention related to property owned. The donor is a descendant of Charles Crane (1819-1907) of St. Johnsbury. There are photographs of family members in the last quarter of the twentieth century, and of Woodside House.

The Fisk family genealogy contains birth and death records dating from 1745 through the early eighteen hundreds. The file contains correspondence related to the process of genealogical search. The donor is a descendant of Aaron Fiske (1748-1839) who served in the Battle of Bennington during the Revolutionary War.

The Bacon Family genealogy includes information from 1732-1980. Eva Crane Goff and Glenn Crane were descendents of Mark and Betsy Clark Bacon, who were married December 14, 1815, in Bath, N.H. There is significant architectural history of the building known as Woodside House, formerly the Crane House, built ca. 1790 in Danville.

The collection also includes extensive correspondence from the last quarter of the twentieth century with various family members and information regarding Danville town activities. The will of Glenn Crane (1897-1980) and documents relating to the charitable trust and will of Eva Crane Goff (d. 1983) are included.
