Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | James H Crawford {Gen 3}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

James H Crawford (Mary, Samuel, William) was born June 23rd 1801 in Crawford, Orange Co, New York to parents Mary Faulkner and William Crawford.

James H married Catherine W Bull (born about 1803) about 1825 in Orange Co, New York.

The couple had at least five children:

  • Mary E Crawford b. 1826 d. before 1855 m. Cornelius Decker
  • Harriet Crawford b. 1830 d. 4 May 1875 m. William McKeag
  • James H Crawford Jr b. 20 Jun 1833 d. 13 May 1888 m. Catherine C Brush
  • Sarah Crawford b. abt 1838 d. 1854
  • John Erskine Crawford b. abt 1841 d. before 1900 m. Sarah Bull Thompson 

James H Crawford died between October 13th 1864, when he penned his will, and April 11th 1866 when the will was presented in court for proof. Most likely that first quarter of 1866. His wife Catherine died sometime after 1875. 

Burial location of both James and Catherine are unknown.
