From"Genealogical and Family History of the State of Vermont, Volume 2" Joseph Crane, Jr., was born August 4, 1757, in Milton, Massachusetts, where he was reared and acquired his education. He married Deliverance Mills, a native of the same village with himself. About 1782, when about twenty-five years of age, he removed to Washington, New Hampshire, where he passed the remainder of his life, and where he died June 30, 1841, at the advanced age of eighty-four years. His widow survived him, and died August 17, 1845. They were the genuine pioneer type, of strong character, persistent industry, and living lives marked with all the domestic virtues. In religon they were Baptists.

Among their children was Ziba, born in Washington, New Hampshire, November 19, 1796. He was reared on the family homestead and began his education in the neighborhood schools. He then learned blacksmithing, and followed his trade until he was forty-eight years of age, when he bought a farm upon which he made his home. He was a Baptist, and took an active part in church affairs, at different times occupying various official positions. He married Roxanna Proctor, who was born in Windsor, Vermont, March 12, 1801, and who died Apiil 27, 1844, aged fifty- three years, after bearing him four children, of whom are now living three—Roxanna, widow of Henry Smith; Willard; and David G. Crane. The father of these children later married for his second wife Eunice Boutelle, who is now living in New Hampshire. He exceeded his father in longevity, living until October 21, 1885, and dying at the age of eighty-nine years.
