My original Crawford ancestor in the United States was Hugh Crawford and his wife, Jane McDowell Crawford. The came to the US in 1795 and settled in Ohio Township, PA in 1817. Their children were William, Hugh, James, Isaac, and Molly. William married Harriet and their children were James, Adam, Eliza, George, Harriet, Hugh, Lewis, John L., Charles B., and Hiram. James married Eliza. M. and had Ella Margaret, Robert A., Charles Wm., Jean B. and Harriet. Charles Wm. Crawford was my great grandfather. I have done much research on the Crawfords from Ohio Township, but there were many and I have much more information to get. I would be happy to share any information with you. I am sure that we are distant cousins.
Would be happy to hear from you.

Yes we are related. I am from the James line, brother of William. I have the line from James, but being fairly new to this, I don't have much more. I will gladly give you what I have. Can I contact you directly? St. Patrick's Day and I can't quite figure how to do it out right now :-)I'm so excited, this is my first Crawford link.

Hi Cindy,

I would be happy to share information with you. I also would like you to know that Harvey Crawford and his daughter live not far from me. Harvey is getting up there in age but is still very mentally with it. He lives on the property in Ohio Township that was part of the old Crawford Farm. I have the will of Hugh Crawford, property deeds of Hugh Crawford and others, census records of Crawfords in Ohio Township,and other information. I also have some very old pictures of the Crawfords at a family reunion probably around 1940's.

I would be happy to help you.

Where do you live? How can I get in touch with you?

I live in Franklin Park, PA which is next to Ohio Township. My email address is Send me your address or phone number and I will get in touch with you.

I have also met Earl Crawford who was the grandson of George Washington Crawford, son of William Crawford in 1990. He lives near my aunt (my mother's sister- the other side of my family). Isn't that strange? My aunt knew him and his family for years and never knew that he was related to me.

Please email me and let me know how I can get in touch with you.

Your Cousin,

Crawfords of PA
