A man named Raymond Cruickshank came home from the war to the Pittsburgh PA area. Met and married a lady named Claire Fritchley. They had a daughter born 1920 and she was named Irene Francis Cruickshank.....Irene Francis after the nurse that had taken care of Raymond when he was wounded in the war. Raymond and Claire also had a son named John. Then Raymond and Claire divorced. No one in our family knows what Happend to Raymond Cruickshank. I was hoping someone else could connect this to their information and let me know.
