I am looking for information on John C. Crowder who owned property in Sangamon county, sec. 32. I am doing a history of our house and would like to know more about the first owner. He was from Green Co. Ky. Any help?

There is a John C. Crowder listed in the obituary book for 1861-1896 from the Sangamon Co. Genealogical Society - they have taken them from the card file at Lincoln Library in Springfield. All it says is: CROWDER, John C. d. 4-10-1863 60 yrs. You might try writing to the library's Reference Desk (where they have the newspapers) and see if you can get a copy of the obit. Good luck

I believe the person you are referring to is John Crowder, son of Philip Crowder and his third wife Sarah Chandler. John was born in Green Co, KY about 1802. Philip and his family moved to Sangamon Co, IL by 1830. John married Mary "Polly" Loswell/Laswell 9 October 1822 in Green Co, KY. According to the book "History of the Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois" by John Carroll Power (1876), John and his wife had 2 children in Green Co. and moved to Sangamon Co in 1826, preceding his father by 4 years. They had 8 more children in Sangamon Co. Those children and information about their marriages and subsequent children are also in Power's book. I would be happy to share the information. John's father, Philip Crowder, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.
