Great-grandfather. Was very vague about his past. Was born either 1895 or 1875, depending on the teller of his story. He said in some immigration documents that he came from Lithuania, or Documents he says Russia. I found 1 that said Norway. The surname was changed because he did not speak English when he arrived, so original probably sounded somewhat similar. He carried a Bible written in Yiddish. He arrived at the Laredo, Texas pont of entry in 1915 I believe, and lived in Wisconsin before settling in Indianapolis, Indiana. He claimed to arrived with 2 brothers. He served in WWI, his surviving dog tags showed his name as Antonio Crissen. I believe his family was Jewish, as my father states he spoke fluent Yiddish with a neighbor, but he himself attended a catholic church in Indianapolis.
