Crane family

The Crane family lives nearby in Caledonia, in between the Lantz and Dudeck families, and 2 doors down from the Buckle family.

John Crane is the head of the household, with his wife Katherine Crane.  Leah Crane is the eldest daughter, followed by Bessie Crane, born 3 May 1888.  Grace spends a lot of time with Bessie and at the Crane household.  Bessie's younger brother is Harold Crane, also mentioned in Grace's diary.

Bessie is listed in the 1910 census as "Lizzie", which could be a transcriber error.  Her given name is reported to the State of Michigan as "Bessie" in their birth records, viewable at Family History Library.  In the 1940 census, Bessie is still unmarried and is living in Ann Arbor.
