Fifth Generation


196. William H. CRAWFORD Jr.31 was born on 20 November 1802 in Hardinsburg, Breckinridge County, Kentucky.31 He died on 4 November 1856 at the age of 53 in Littleton, Schuyler County, Illinois.31

Taxpayer in Schuyler Co, IL, 1838: William Crawford. I don't know if it was father or son and two did not seem to be listed.

1840 Schuyler Co IL has the following for William Crofford:
1m -5 [William T.], 2m 5-10 [James & ?] 1m 10-15 [Tolbertt]; 1m 15-20 [??]; 1m 30-40 [William]
1f 5-10 [Louisa]; 1f 10-15 [??], 1f 15-20 [Jane]; 1f 30-40 [Malinda] It would seem that there were more children than are listed here.


Died from injuries suffered in the tornado that struck Littleton 24 Oct 1856. An article that appeared in "The Rushville Times" on 31 Oct 1856 states that son Talbert Crawford's store room and dwelling were completely demolished and his father severely injured.


Cemetery Inscription: Co. H, 1119 Ill. Vol.
Moved to Illinois between the births of James in 1833 and William in 1836 according to the 1850 Census.

Schuyler Co IL Estates & Wills, 1850-1868 Index online at Schuyler County, IL, USGenWeb
p.455 Dec. 4 1856 Will of William H. Crawford, dated 4 Nov 1856. Wife, Malinda, and George Riggs to be Exec. Names sons: William, Samuel, James. Daughters: Louisa, Sarah T. and "married" daughters. At one point he mentioned four daughters - I only know of three.

Two other ladies with the Crawford surname married before 1856 - one was Betsey Ann Crawford who married George Riggs, 6 April 1847 - since he was one of the Executors of the Will of William Crawford, surely she is the missing daughter.
