Just a little side note on the Cranes of New Orleans.

John and Alice Crane and their children lived in an area of New Orleans called Algiers, now known as one of the birthplaces of jazz.

In October of 1895, a large section of Algiers burned; Alice's home was destroyed.

Also destroyed in the fire? The courthouse with all of its records.
