Looking for info. on Francis Crawford m. Elizabeth Land
I'm looking for information on the husband of Elizabeth Land, Francis Crawford. I know they were married on 11 Dec. 1834 in Haywood Co., North Carolina. I also noted on their marriage bond that George Washington Crawford was bondsmen. Elizabeth Land was supposedly born in Haywood Co., abt. 1814. I know that Elizabeth Land had a sister named Mary who married a Samuel Monroe Crawford who was the son of a George Washington Crawford who was born around the time of my Francis Crawford. Francis Crawford and Elizabeth Land had a son named William Thomas Crawford b. 31 Dec. 1835 Haywood Co., NC and d. 20 Sept. 1894 Obion Co., TN.
As for William Thomas' father Francis, I have a census record from 1850 stating that he was b. abt. 1797 in Ireland. Francis married Martha A Joiner(Joyner) secondly in 1939 in Nash Co., NC which is also the date that his wife Elizabeth Land died. Francis supposedly died in 1865 in Gibson County, TN, but I can't find an actual record for that and it is only speculation based on other family trees.
I know there are several Francis Crawford running around North Carolina and South Carolina around his birth date and I would really like to have proof of who my Francis Crawford actually was. I'm also wondering if there is some kind of connection with Samuel Monroe Crawford's father George Washington Crawford and the George Washington Crawford who was bondsmen for Francis Crawford and Elizabeth Land.
Any help in figuring out who my Francis Crawford actually was would be greatly appreciated. I would also share any information I have on his family. Thanks in advance.
