  ii.   DAVID CRAWFORD, b. 1811, TRUMBULL CO OHIO; d. 1910, MOVED TO ALLEN COUNTY IN 1828 WITH FATHER JOHN.
  Notes for DAVID CRAWFORD:
DAVID CRAWFORD WAS BORN IN TRUMBULL COUNTY, OHIO SEPT 10-1811 AND CAME TO ALLEN COUNTY IN 1828, WHEN BATH TOWNSHIP HAD JURISDICTION OVER NEARLY ALL ALLEN COUNTY, WITH HIS FATHER'S FAMILY. MR JOHN CRAWFORD, HIS FATHER, DIED IN 1839, AGED SIXTY YEARS; AND HIS MOTHER IN 1861, AGED ABOUT SEVENTY-FOUR. THEY CAME FROM WASHINGTON COUNTY, PA AND SETTLED IN TRUMBUL COUNTY FOR SOME YEARS BEFORE COMING TO ALLEN COUNTY. MR CRAWFORD(DAVID) IS OF THE OPINION THAT COL. WILLIAM CRAWFORD, WHO WAS BURNED BY THE DELAWARES, ON THE TYMOCHEEE, IN WYANDOT COUNTY, IN 1782, WAS A DISTANT RELATIVE OF THE ALLEN COUNTY CRAWFORDS. THEY SETTLED IN SECTION 4, MONROE TOWNSHIP, THEN IN BATH TOWNSHIP ORGANIZATION. THE TOWNSHIP WAS ORGANIZED AT A LATER PERIOD. THE JUSTICE OF THE PEACE THAT HE REMEMBER WAS CHRISTOPHER WOOD, WHO DIED IN 1856, AGED EIGHTY-SEVEN YEARS. THE FIRST SCHOOL TAUGHT IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD WAS ON SECTION 3, BY EZRA H COMB, IN AN OLD CABIN. THE FIRST CHURCH WAS OF HEWED LOGS ON SECTION R BY THE METHODISTS ABOUT 1836. THE MILLS WERE WHAT WAS KNOWN AS HORE MILLS AND OWNED BY MR BURCH. THE FIRST SAW MILL WAS ON SUGAR CREEK AND OWNED BY A MR HIGGS, ABOUT 1832. THE EARLIEST SETTLERS REMEMBERED WERE: MR BARBARA, E HARSHORN, DAVID PETIT, BENJAMIN MOORE, ALBERT WOOD HARMAN WOOD TOBIAS WOOD, MR EVANS, MR EVERETT, ABSALOM BROWN, ALEXANDER ALLISON MATTHEW ALLISON AND A FEW OTHERS. MR CRAWFORD STILL REMAINS A BACELOR, NOT HAVING UNITED HIS FORTUNES WITH SOME FAIR LADY, FOR REASONS BESTO KNOWN TO HIMSELF. AN AGED SISTER IS MISTRESS OF THE HOUSEHOLD ALSO HAVIN FAILED TO MARRY; BUT FRANKLY DECLARED THAT SHE WAS NOT ASHAMED TO OWN HER AGE, LIKE MOST LADIES, FOR SHE WAS JUST FIFTY-THREE YEARS OF AGE. SHE APPEARED QUITE TALKATIVE, AND SEEMED POSSESSED OF A CLEAR RECOLLECTION OF THE OCCURRENCES OF THE PAST. WHOEVER MAY BE IN FAULT, WE INCLINE TO BELIEVE THIS LADY WOULD HAVE MADE SOME INDUSTRIOUS MAN OF GOOD HABITS HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS.

THIS IS FROM THE ALLEN COUNTY ATLAS OF 1875
