Generation No. 1

 1.  John1 Crawford was born Abt. 1770 in McIntosh County, Georgia, USA, and died Bef. 1820.  He married Priscilla ??? Abt. 1789.  Priscilla's maiden name may possibly have been Molliday, Malleatte' or Holiday.
Priscilla was a "Fortunate Drawer" in the 1820 Land Lottery. She could only qualify as a widow who was a resident of the state for three years, so it assumed that her husband had died by this time. James, her oldest son qualified in his own right because he was a white male over 18.
Reben, Thomas, Ezekiel and William qualified as "orphans" under 21 whose father had died.
