Nope, she is not a Crook. However, Agnes was an early pioneer of Smith River and continues to have the distinction of building the oldest extant house in Smith River, California. "Mrs. Maris' house" on First Street has always been in various states of repair when I have seen it, but the last time I was in Smith River, I seem to recall it looked like someone was trying to fix it up. That is a good thing -- the house dates to at least the 1860s and should be preserved as an important California monument.
