  • Name John CRANE  [1
    • He in many respects was much like his father, an intelligent, self-reliant, enterprising man. In all his endeavors and aspirations thoroughly devoted to the general good of the public. Although he was cut down in middle life, yet by virtue of the confidence reposed i him by his fellow-citizens he already had assumed the high position in the affairs of states which his father had so long and acceptably occupied before him. In minor public matters Mr. Crane was also ever ready to contribute his full share of time ad energy.

      He was delegate to the General Court for thirteen sessions, from 1703 to 1711, the year of his death. In 1708 he received a captain's commission, and went in command of a company with the expedition under the command of General Sir Francis Nicholson against Canada, which proved so unsuccessful, in the year 1711. Captain Crane returned with his company as far as New York, which place they reached in the month of October on their way home. Worn out and completely exhausted, and diseased in consequence of the exposures and hardships attending this disastrous campaign he was unable to journey further, and died in New York, October, 1711, and was there honored with a State funeral.
