The Crawford line

William Leo Crawford was Sue's grandfather on her mother's side. As with many of the family names, we started collecting information by talking to family. For several generations, the Crawfords were in Brown Co, Ohio.

After much searching, we found 'Old Red Oak (Old Brick) Cemetery located at West Henry and Linn outside of Sardinia in Brown County. In that cemetery, we found three generations of Crawfords (William H., John, and Joshua) with the oldest being born in 1768. The cemetery was completely grown over with weeds and bushes when we first discovered it. The good news - when we next visited it, it had been cleared and looked in better shape.

We have traced the Crawford line back to another John Crawford that appears to have come to America from Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

The Crawfords are connected to a number of families we are investigating, such as: BILLS, TWINNING, SCOTT, DEANE, TILTON, RING, DAY, and others. The connections to these families is through Ester Scott, the wife of George Crawford.
