98. Melinda Ann HARDIN was born on 4 February 1780.30 She died before July 1829 at the age of 49 in Breckinridge County, Kentucky.34

Court Order Book 8; p.34. 25 July 1829. "entered of Record that Malinda Crawford wife of William Crawford has departed this life"

Melinda Ann HARDIN and William H CRAWFORD were married on 15 February 1798 in Hardin County, Kentucky.18,37 William H CRAWFORD26, son of Samuel CRAWFORD and Jenet MASON, was born on 8 December 1770 in Botetourt County, Virginia.118 He died on 12 July 1845 at the age of 74 in Schuyler County, Illinois.118

Birthdate is calculated from his date of death as 12 Jul 1845. Said to be aged 74 years, 7 months, 4 days. I find these to be often incorrect. This date in 1770 would suggest he was born before his parents married, but of course the marriage date could be the one that's in error.
