Mose McCrimager was born to the late Frank and Mary Ann McCrimager, Sr. on October 20, 1917 in Alachua County, FL. He relocated to Inverness/Hernando, FL as a young man. There, he met and married Thelma Henderson in December of 1938. They had no children. But, Mose did father a child, Princess Lee, through a previous marriage. Both, Princess Lee and his wife, Thelma, preceded him in death.
