Census Mystery

Have you ever gone back over census research in a particular county? I have to admit that I don’t think I’ve ever gone back to make sure I can identify everyone of a particular surname in a county — until recently.

While working on updating the narrative reports for Nelson G. Crawford and his wife Martha Smith, I discovered several documents involving their children that I’m transcribing for my Friday finds posts. Knowing that I have already researched the two Crawford families in Warren County, Indiana, I decided to look at the 1850 census to see if it would reveal anything new about these families.

Instead of learning much new about the two families, I discovered TWO NEW FAMILIES along with three other individuals.

While I might be able to place Rebecca Crawford and Harvy Crawford in the families of James and Martha Crawford, I cannot place Martha Crawford in either the James Crawford or the Nelson Crawford families. And I have no idea how the Robert Crawford and Susan Crawford families might connect.

The Robert Crawford household is listed on image 11 of the 1850 Warren County, Indiana census in Mound Township.

The Susan Crawford family is listed on image 20 living on the 1850 census living in Pine Township of Warren County, Indiana.

So, I now have two families living in Warren county, Indiana that I can’t connect to my existing research. A search of the 1860 census records for the Crawford surname in Warren County, Indiana did not help figure out this mystery. With the exception of one family, the John H Crawford family, I can identify all of the other Crawfords as members of the James Crawford or the Nelson Crawford family. Digging around on FamilySearch, I found a John H Crawford (KLRJ-B8B) that seems to match the census record. Unfortunately, this FS record does not have parents for John H Crawford. However, there is another John Harvey Crawford (KZ2K-NW1) with a wife named Mary J that is identified as the son of John Douglas Crawford. And, John Douglas Crawford is the son of James and Martha Knight Crawford. Thus, it is possible that the John H Crawford listed in the 1860 census is the grandson of James Crawford and thus tied to my research.

Since the 1860 census didn’t reveal more about the Richard Crawford and Susan Crawford families, I turned to the 1840 census. And I can identify all of the Crawford families except one, Robert Crawford.

Since Robert Crawford had a son named Jacob and Susan had a son named Lemuel, I tried to locate the families on FamilySearch and in public trees on Ancestry. And so far, I haven’t been able to find any tree that matches the families shown in the 1850 census records.

Another thing I learned from this review of the 1850 Warren County, Indiana census records: there were TWO Washington Crawfords born about 1838. One is listed in the household of Susan Crawford and the other is my ancestor, Washington Marion Crawford who is listed as Marion Crawford in the household of Nelson Crawford. This likely explains why my ancestor used his middle name, Marion, on many records. Thankfully, I have quite a few records linking my ancestor to Nelson and Martha Crawford.

Now, I have two Crawford families that may be related to one of the identified lines, but I haven’t been able to locate other researchers of these families. Can you help? Have you seen these families in your research?

The Beginning

#SaturdayNightGenealogyFun

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:It’s Saturday Night again –time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

 Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I hope more of you do than participated in the last several SNGF challenges), is to:1)  Daniel Loftus and several other genealogists on Twitter (see https://twitter.com/hashtag/MyGenealogyStory?src=hashtag_clickchallenged genealogists to share what first sparked their interest in family history.  What was yours?

My genealogy journey started around 1977 or 1978. I had driven across Kansas to spend some time with my grandmother in Dodge City. While there, we began talking family history. That’s when she asked me to help her find the burial location of her grandmother, Julia.

My grandmother’s mother had died when my grandmother was a young child. Due to the death of her mother, she didn’t know much about her grandparents. Thus, the question.

Shortly after this request from my grandmother, I was at my mother-in-law’s house in Phillipsburg. Since my mother-in-law was actively researching her family, I started asking questions. Thanks to my mother-in-law, I learned how to complete a pedigree chart and a family group sheet. She suggested that I read Hall Greenwood’s book, The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy.

From that point onward, my trips to Dodge City always incorporated learning more about my family history. During one trip, my grandmother took me to the Kansas Heritage center where I re-learned how to use microfilm and searched the Dodge City papers for marriage announcements and obituaries.

It was my grandmother who knew who the researchers were in the family. She helped me connect with my great aunt Gladys who had compiled information on the Crawford side of my tree. Another letter went to my great aunt Esther who had the Crawford family Bible. Grandma also connected me with a Currey cousin who had been compiling information on that line.

During those early years, my grandmother and I traveled to the Kansas City area in search for answers about her grandparents. During that trip, my grandmother took me to her mother’s grave in Olathe. We also visited some cousins in the Liberty, Missouri area and visited a cousins grave. While driving thru North Kansas City, my grandmother talked about how she and her sister, Mary, had left the children’s home to go to work in North Kansas City.

In those early days, my mother-in-law also introduced me to Everton’s Genealogical Helper. When each issue arrived, I would pour thru the ads looking for any possible connection to my family. At times, I even placed my own ads. That’s when I learned to use SASE (self-addressed stamped envelopes).

My early ‘research trips’ were to the Kansas State Historical Society in Topeka. Since my ancestors all settled in Kansas prior to 1890, I was able to access census and newspaper records in their holdings. They also have a collection of county histories from around the country that helped me research my tree prior to their coming to Kansas.

Occasionally, I would make a trip to the Mid-Continent genealogy library in Independence, Missouri where I could access census records for states besides Kansas. I also became fairly proficient in writing letters to request records — and then waiting on those SASE to appear in my mailbox.

I don’t remember how I got connected with Ruth Keys Clark, but I participated in two bus trips to Salt Lake City that she sponsored. Those trips were my introduction to using the vast microfilm holdings of the LDS library.

Thanks to all of that early research, I collected a lot of handwritten notes and photocopies along with letters from other researchers.

Research today is nothing like those early days. However, I still use those skills I learned along the way. As my retirement days are filled with time spent researching, I am forever grateful to my grandmother for that original inquiry. (And, no, the gravesite has not been located but is likely located somewhere in Doniphan County, Kansas.)

Nelson Crawford Land Entries

Do you include land records in your genealogy toolbox? For me, they have proven to be very helpful when it comes to separating men of the same name.

Since many of my ancestors were early settlers in public domain states, I often check the Bureau of Land Management General Land Office Records site.

The ‘Land Patents’ page is my normal destination. Most of the time, I search these patents for a surname in a specific county. Thus, I would change the state to Indiana, enter the county of Warren and the surname of Crawford to search for entries for my 3rd great grandfather, Nelson Crawford.

That search turns up entries for several Crawfords, three of which are for Nelson G. Crawford.

In December 1830, certificate #11.152 indicates that full payment had been received from Nelson G. Crawford for 80 acres in section 8 of township 21 north of range 8 west.

Then in 1851, there is a patent for Nelson G. Crawford who was an assignee of William Quackenbush, late a private in Captain Gallahens Company First Regiment New York Volunteer, for 160 acres in section 19 in township 23 north of range 9 west.

A search of the First Landowners Project for the surname ‘Crawford’ in Warren County, Indiana shows two of Nelson Crawford’s land entries (townships 22 and 23 of range 9 W) along with 2 clusters of Crawford entries in township 21 of ranges 8 and 9 west.

Zooming in on the map reveals that the original Nelson G. Crawford patent was for land adjoining a James Crawford.

While it would be easy to assume that the James Crawford owning land adjacent to Nelson G Crawford was his father, James Crawford (1772-1854), that is not the case. Instead, Nelson’s neighbor is the same James Crawford who owned land adjacent to Nelson’s father. My previous post, James Crawford Land in Warren County, Indiana, explains how this land belonged to James Crawford (1770-1833).

Thanks to the patents available on the BLM site along with the maps on the First Landowners Project, I can show that my ancestor, Nelson G. Crawford’s first land entry was dated in December 1830 AND was next to his Preble County, Ohio neighbor, James Crawford.

Relationships

Have you ever received a message from someone asking how you might be related to their parent or grandfather? Such a message was in my Ancestry inbox recently. The writer wished to know my relationship to Alvin Lambert.

Since Lambert isn’t one of my common surnames, I needed to search my RootsMagic database to first see if I had such a person in my file and then figure out our relationship. To start this process, I typed in the Lambert surname in the search box for the RM index.

Having located Alvin Lambert in my database, I just have to highlight him on the people screen and it will tell me how we are related. I simply have to look below his name and dates in the individual area of the screen.

The relationship shown on this screen is to the person identified as the ‘Root’ person in the settings.

Sometimes, I might wish to calculate the relationship with someone other than the root person. To do that, I have to use the Relationship Calculator tool. This tool is accessed via the Command Palette. The icon for the command palette looks like a paint palette and is in the upper right corner of RootsMagic 8.

Clicking on the icon opens a list of tasks. Scrolling to the Rs, I located the Relationship Calculator tool. and clicked to open it.

The tool opens with the name of the highlighted person in the Select Person 1 slot. (Note: This can be changed by clicking on the ‘Select Person 1’ button and then selecting the desired person from the list of people.)

To answer the question as to how two people are related I need to select person 2. Thus, I click on the ‘Select Person 2’ button and type in my last name and then first name of the person I want to use as person 2.

Once I have both people selected, I just click on the ‘Calculate’ button in the bottom right corner of the window.

The program then figures out the relationship between person 1 and person 2.

Sometimes, I might wish to generate a report showing the HOW of a relationship. For this task, RootsMagic 8 has a built-in report called ‘Relationship Chart’. To get to this report, I go to Publish and then click on All Reports and Charts.

With the list of all of the available reports open, I scroll to the Rs to locate RELATIONSHIP CHART.

When the report opens, the currently highlighted person on the people screen will be listed as ‘Person 1’. If that is who I want in that position, I simply select person 2 and modify any of the other settings.

When the ‘Generate Report’ button is clicked, a report is displayed showing the lines from both individuals back to a common ancestor.

For those with trees on Ancestry, it is possible to determine the relationship between the home person in the tree and another individual in the tree.

https://support.ancestry.com/s/article/Seeing-How-People-in-Your-Ancestry-Tree-are-Related-to-You

Since I’m already configured as the home person in my tree, I simply had to locate Alvin Lambert in my tree and open his profile page.

When I click on the relationship, a ‘report’ opens showing the ancestry of the person back to a common ancestor and then down to me.

No matter which way I create this report, the accuracy of this report is dependent on the accuracy of my tree.

Crawford yDNA

In your genealogy research have you have someone in your tree do a yDNA test? If so, did you join the surname project associated with that test?

Hoping that yDNA would help me get my CRAWFORD research out of Kentucky, I talked my brother into swabbing his cheeck. It was five years ago when his test was added to the Crawford DNA project. At first, he was placed in the R1b-01Ungrouped section of the project. Over the past five years, his test has been upgraded to BigY and we are now part of the R1b-01A  Ardmillan group. Technically this is defined as (BY226182) and closer branches – A13336 > (BY21624 > BY226182? *OR* Y88686 > FT344803?), and generally DYS460=12.

Our haplogroup is R-Y88686. This group includes a descendant from the following lines:

  • James Crawford born about 1772 in Virginia; married Sally Smith Duggins in 1799 in Garrard County, Kentucky; migrated to Preble County, Ohio, where he died in 1854. Known children include Polly Stoner and Nelson G. Crawford.
  • James Crawford born Dec 1770 in Augusta County, Virginia; married March 1793 in Lincoln County, Kentucky; owned land in Barren County, Kentucky prior to moving to Preble County, Ohio. From Preble County, Ohio, James and his family moved to Warren County, Indiana where he died in 1833. Known Children include Elizabeth Jane Lincoln, Sarah Shankland, John Douglass Crawford, William Allen Crawford, Mary Polly Swank, Nancy Pugh, James Sellers Crawford, Rebecca Hatton, Harvey Harrison Crawford, Celinda French.
  • James Crawford born about 1758 in Augusta County, Virginia and died in 1836 in Jefferson County, Indiana. James married Rebecca Anderson Maxwell in 1779 in Montgomery County, Virginia. James owned land along Paint Lick Creek in Garrard County, Kentucky. James and his family moved from Kentucky to Jefferson County, Indiana. Known children include Anne Creath, William Crawford, Mary “Polly” Guthrie, Isaac Crawford, James Maxwell Crawford, Elizabeth Vawter, Jane Hall, and Cynthia Crafton.
  • William Nelson Crawford born in 1829 in Ohio. In 1864, he married Julia Decious in Lassen, California. By 1877, the family had moved to Grand Dalles, Klickitat County, Washington. William died in 1907 in Klickitat County, Washington. Known children include Minnie Julia Saxton, John C. Crawford, William Harvey Crawford, Mary P. Crawford and James Crawford.

The three James Crawfords in the R-Y88686 haplogroup are all found in the area of Garrard County, Kentucky prior to 1800. Even though these families seem to cross paths with descendants of Alexander Crawford and Mary McPheeters Crawford, they are not the sons (or grandsons) of Alexander Crawford.

I believe that Alexander and Mary’s son, James, is the Rev James Crawford, who was the pastor of Walnut Hill church outside of Lexington. This James Crawford was born about 1752/3 in Augusta County making him 11 years old at the time of Alexander and Mary’s deaths. The Rev. James Crawford died in 1803 in Fayette County, Kentucky. According to several genealogies, his wife was Rebecca McPheeters. I believe their children are Martha McPheeters, Alexander Crawford, Mary Crawford, Elizabeth Galloway, Sarah Crawford and Rebecca Crawford. As a Presbyterian pastor, Rev. James Crawford of Fayette County, KY could possibly be the Rev. James Crawford mentioned in Garrard County histories.

According to Find a Grave records, the James Crawford who died in Jefferson County, Indiana served in the revolutionary war. However, the DAR has closed this line until someone can provide additional proof of his service. When I first started researching him, a request for his military file produced documents referring to both him and to another James Crawford.

This James Crawford was also born about 1758 in Virginia and died in 1836 – in Fleming County, Kentucky. In 1786, he married Sarah Vansant in Botetourt County, Virginia. I believe his children include Jane Hamlett, Mary Keeney, Alexander Crawford, Ann Barton, Sarah Cochran, John Crawford, Henry Crawford, Margery Kenny, Josiah Crawford, Samuel Crawford and Joshua Crawford.

So far, yDNA hasn’t broken down my brick wall. However, it does support what I and others have believed for a long time: the James Crawfords with Garrard County Kentucky ties are all related — somehow.

Genealogy Fun

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:It’s Saturday Night again -time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

 Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I hope more of you do than participated in the last several SNGF challenges), is to:1)  What was your best family history or genealogy discovery (or discoveries) this past week (or month if you choose)?

Can anyone say monotony? Or monotonous? That’s how my genealogy research feels this past week / month.

You might ask how genealogy research can be monotonous. In my case, I’ve been verifying the leaf hints for the descendants of my third great grandfather, Samuel Christy (1819-1904). This is one of my goals for 2022 and I can honestly say, I completed the task down 4 generations. However, adding documentation for birth, marriage, death and census records family after family does get monotonous. My post on Wednesday will share the results on all of this work.

Even though I have to document descendants for four more 3rd great grandfathers yet to go, I likely will take a break and work on updating the narrative reports for these 3rd great grandfathers. Even though this task can create its own monotony, it often leads me to transcribing records, digging in my files to see what else might be there and locating records I’ve yet to use.

So, why do I have these monotonous tasks as my primary 2022 goals?

  • Over the years, I’ve found that researching children and grandchildren or even suspected siblings has helped me find records to help identify that next generation back.
  • Updating the narrative reports helps me identify ‘holes’ in my research. This leads to searching for more records to document this ancestor’s life.
  • My descendancy research helps me figure out my DNA matches. Thanks to a post by Chris Ferraiolo’s on the WikiTree Members Group on Facebook along with the comment by Randy Seaver, I was able to use Chris Ferraiolo’s magic spreadsheet to get my ‘Common Ancestor’ DNA matches into a spreadsheet — and there are over 1500 of them.

Even though my over 1500 common ancestor DNA matches seems huge, it is only 1.5% of my total matches. Thus, completing my 2022 goals may help me identify more common ancestors for my DNA matches. Ultimately, I’m also hoping that by sharing this research, it will lead to more collaboration and ultimately improving my ‘genealogy score‘. Thus, I need to keep plugging away at these ‘monotonous’ goals in hopes of making new connections and discoveries.

Railroad Attracts Emigrants to Kansas

Coming to Kansas
They are coming ti Kansas in gangs and droves; they are coming by wagon and railroad; single-handed and with families; some with children enough to found an orphan asylum and others with not enough to pick up chips; the rich and the poor and the sick and the well — they are coming father Abraham, three hundred thousand strong, and we have a section of land for every mother’s son of them — land that will grow corn so fast you can see it coming; so rich and fertile that the harvest is gathered by machinery, and so tillable that the farmers hardly consider it recreation; with a climate that has earned it the name of the Italy of American.
Yesterday morning three hundred and fifty excursionists or land buyers went out on the Santa Fe road, ticketed to Kinsley, Kansas, with the privilege of stopping at any point this side of there. Of this number Gen. M. Solomon the agent of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, road at Chicago, had general supervision of two hundred and twenty-five, he being assisted by Dr. Williams, and L. H. Wilson, of Iowa, and local agents of Michigan and Wisconsin. This party came in on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific road.
Mr. Peter Hitty, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, assisted by H. Kahlo, of Toledo Ohio, was in charge of a party of one hundred and twenty-five, which came by Hannibal & St. Joseph road.
The Santa Fe train which took them out consisted of seven passenger coaches, in charge of conductor Lew Head.
The very great majority of this body of excursionists were well-to-do intelligent looking men — just such as will make desirable citizens for Kansas. There were one hundred and ninety-two pieces of luggage accompanying them. — Atchison Champion
