The Krajicek family name was not shortened to Kray until during WWI, so Louise (Louisa in the 1880 Cleveland, Ohio census) would have had the full maiden name. She died two months after bearing an infant son who died shortly after birth. According to her sister, Aunt Nance, she never left the hosopital, but lingered there for almost two months before she died. Dad (Russell Marion Blood) would have been 1 1/2 years old.
