After years of looking for my Crawford folk, I have finally found them in Fairland Cemetery; however, getting there is another story! This family has been a bear to research!!! I am attempting to track down the death records for Josiah and Sarah Crawford.I called the funeral homes in town and they do not have them.The cemetery is owned by the city and they may hold a record.I was told it would be doubtful that the state could have the records, as that was a fairly new mandate (1910's) and county compliance was slow at best pre-1920. I am looking for anyone from that area who could possibly take a picture of the tombstone(s) and maybe even try to do a look-up for any kind of death book entry (City or County level) or an obit for either person or both.It would be most appreciated. Below is what I know:
FAIRLAND CEMETERY, Sec. 10 Twp.26, R 23, Ottawa Co. East 190 Rd., Fairland, OK
Crawford J.A.Born - Nov.10, 1840 Died - May 30, 1912
Crawford Sarah L.Born - Dec.19, 1844, Died - Jan.24, 1918
I am assuming this information was taken from the tombstone, but I have no way to know for sure. I do not believe that any of the Crawford children are buried there, but like I said, this is a hard bunch to track. Below is a list of the family, hope it helps. Anything looks familiar, drop me a line.
