5.  1920 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #3 of 12 indexed "George H. Crees"; online at Genealogy.com, Image #3 of 12):  Meyers Falls Precinct, Stevens Co., WA, Roll 1938 (Book 1), p. 140A, SN 2A, SD 5, ED 284, enumerated 5 Jan 1920.  This record is so hard to read, at both Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com, that I give up trying.  The record was a bear to find because George is indexed as being born in South Carolina.  I can at least tell that the members of the household are George (53), Marry (52), Delbert (29), Ralph G. (27), Ira D. (18), Fred W. (16), Beatrice (15), Harry (12), Irene (9), Earl (7).
