I have a fair amount of info. on Edgar Seaton Crawford who was married to my 1st cousin 2X removed, Jennie Lenore Talbot on 16 Oct 1904 in London. The following I am coping and pasting from my computer notes on Edgar:
We know that Jennie Talbot married Edgar Crawford, and her father John Talbot died at Edgar's home at 45 Windsor Ave in 1928 in London. Edgar S. (ED) Crawford was a native of Mitchell, Ontario. His fathers name was Cutcher Crawford. Edward lived in London for over 40 years and worked at the Heintzman Piano Company where he was manager, and then ran his own business for 15 years called the Crawford Piano Company. In his later years he worked for Alfred Talbot Printing Company.

At the time of his death they had one daughter Lenore who worked at the London Free Press, a brother Bertram of London, Ontario and a sister Mrs. Louisa ? , of Victoria, B.C. Edward is buried with his wife Jennie at Mt. Pleasant Cem. Section U, Row 1, Stone #2. It appears as though daughter Lenore T. Crawford is also buried at this site.

In the 1911 census (copy on file) District 94, sub dist. 10, page 7 for London Ward 1 it shows Edgar Crawford with wife Jennie and daughter Lenore (age 1) living at 18 Evergreen Street. Edgar is a salesman for the Heintz Piano Store.

I have Edgar's obit along with a photo which is in the London Free Press 5 Jan 1942, page #20 or I can scan and send you a copy. Also have a pic. of his tombstone and house he was living in before he died.

I have additional info. on his brother and sister and his only child Lenore Talbot Crawford which I won't get into in this reply.
