FatherHenry Crum b. 6 Apr 1815, d. 29 Oct 1897
MotherCatherine Moore b. 21 Oct 1817, d. 23 Dec 1891
Birth*24 February 1852 Joseph H Crum was born on 24 February 1852 at Sandbrook, Hunterdon, NJG. A copy of the birth registration from State of New Jersey states that Joseph was born 2 Feb 1852. Apparently there was a typing error in this document which was made long after the actual event. A reading of the original entry in Book R, page 79 indicates the birth date was 24 Feb 1852. The death certificate also lists the birthdate as 24 Feb 1852, not 2 Feb 1852.1,2 
1860 Census30 August 1860 Joseph appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Sand Brook, Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG in the household of his parents, Henry and Catherine, enumerated 30 August 1860.3 
1870 Census30 June 1870 18 year old Joseph H Crum was still living with his parents in Delaware Township, Hunterdon, New JerseyG on 30 June 1870. Joseph was an apprentice wheelwright.4 
Marriage*25 February 1876 He married Anna Maria Carter, daughter of David Carter and Anna Maria Moore, on 25 February 1876 at Lambertville, Hunterdon, NJG. The couple was married by Reverend Charles Thomas, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Lambertville. The bride and groom were from New Hope, Pennsylvania. The groom was a wheelwright and the bride was a seamstress.5,6 
1880 Census*8 June 1880 Joseph and Anna Maria appeared on the census of 8 June 1880 at North Delaware Township, Hunterdon, New JerseyG. Joseph was a wheelwright and Anna was caring for their two children, Gussie, age 3 and Richard age 1.7 
Occupation*1881 Joseph owned a wagon shop in Sand Brook, a small settlement in the northeast part of Delaware Township. Sand Brook is five and a half miles from Stockton and two and a half miles from Sergeantsville. Sand Brook also had a German Baptist Church, where Rev John P. Moore was pastor; a school where Joseph S. Fauss was the teacher; a grist mill run by water power, Hiram Moore, proprietor; a store kept by Charles W. Moore and a blacksmith shop operated by George F. Green. Sand Brook was named for the brook that fed the mill, a tributary of the Third Neshanic River.8,9 
Compiler's Comment These Moores residing in Sand Brook were probably relatives of Joseph's mother, Catherine Moore. 
1885 NJ census*1885 He appeared on the census of in 1885 at Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG.10 
Note*17 July 1890 On 17 July 1890, thirty seven year old Anna Maria died and left Joseph to raise six children ranging in age from two to thirteen. 
1895 NJ census*1895 He appeared on the census in 1895 at Delaware Township, Hunterdon, NJG.11 
Probate4 January 1897 He was named heir of the Sarah White estate which was probated on 4 January 1897 at Surrogate's Office, Hunterdon County Courthouse, Flemington, Hunterdon, NJG. He was to receive 1/6 of the residue of the estate after all expenses and bequests were paid. Sarah Crum White was Joseph's aunt.12 
1900 Census*7 June 1900 He appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of 424 North 22nd Street, Philadelphia, PAG, enumerated 7 June 1900. Joseph was employed as a metal worker and was living in a boarding house, as was his nephew, James Crum.13 
Compiler's Comment* By 1900, the widowed Joseph had left Sand Brook for Philadelphia. Perhaps employment opportunities were better in the city. His children ranged in age from 23 to 13. They had either married or were living with relatives and friends. The youngest, Cleve, moved in with a neighbor, Nathan Shepherd and his wife, Mary. Nathan Shepherd was a 70 year old farmer. Cleve earned his keep by helping on the farm; schooling was sporadic. He managed to attend school enough months to have the equivalent of a third grade education. It is hard not to wonder how different his childhood (and those of his siblings) might have been if his mother had not died from consumption when Cleve was only a toddler. 
Death*12 January 1909 Joseph died on 12 January 1909 at Los Angeles, CAG, at age 56. He suffered a fracture at the base of his skull on January 9th and died at 11 p.m. on January 12th. At the time of his death, he was residing at 520 1/2 Towne Ave in Los Angeles. He had lived there for four years and nine months. Joseph's occupation was carriage maker. Information for the death certificate was provided by his son, Richard F. Crum.1 
Compiler's Comment Apparently the opportunities Joseph's sons, Richard and Hawley, found in California provided the impetus for Joseph to move three thousand miles away from his home in NJ. 
Burial*15 January 1909 He was buried on 15 January 1909 at Rosedale Cemetery, Los Angeles, CaliforniaG.1 
Obituary*22 January 1909  His obituary appeared in the Trenton Evening Times:"News of the death of Joseph H. Crum at his home in Los Angeles, CA has just reached here. He was sixty years old and a son of the late Henry Crum of Sand Brook. The deceased conducted a wheelwright shop at Sand Brook for many years. He is survived by three sons and three daughters."14
