About Crawford Packer Puffer Ball
This family history has been a labor of love for more than 20 years. Special thanks to my Aunt Jean
(Packer) Pierce who got me started and gave me a lot of help. Also a special thanks to Beulah
(Puffer) Kresge (1885-1976), my Great Aunt. After Beulah’s spouse died in 1933 when she only 48,
Beulah started working on her genealogy and did so for more than 30 years. I discovered 8 boxes of
her work in a Detroit Public Library. Beulah’s brother, Harry Puffer, left many written documents
about growing up on the Puffer Farm and other events in his life. On my father’s side of my family,
his mother, Lucy (Ball) Crawford left a lot of family pictures. Finally, my living relatives on both
sides of my family have also been very helpful in supplying information, pictures and stories about
our ancestors and relatives. Despite being careful, I’m certain there are errors in my genealogy and
I welcome corrections. My genealogy program, Reunion, will not export my sources for the narrative.
Just let me know and I’ll get it to you. If you have additional information, pictures or stories,
just click the comments button above. I hope you enjoy exploring our Crawford, Packer, Puffer, Ball
family history!  — David Crawford
