Crefeld History


Peter Crefeld



In just a few years, I have been able to find much information about the Crefeld family.  Growing up, I came to realize that Crefeld was not a familiar name, and now we know why.  My great-grandfather, Frank, was the only Crefeld to come to America.  The rest of the Crefeld family stayed in Germany, and are still there today.  This book is a dedication to the history of the Crefelds in America.
