Title

Photograph of Private Joseph Percy Crayon

Description

Joseph Percy Crain (or Crane) was born in 1841, although it is uncertain where he was born. He moved to northern New Jersey at an early age and became a schoolteacher in the town of Rockaway (now - Denville) where he changed his last name to Crayon. He is famous for his Rockaway Records - a collection of family genealogy of early Morris County residents.

Crayon died in 1908 and is buried at the Hill Family Cemetery in Franklin, New Jersey.
