On Henry's death certificate of 1870, his son David Perry stated that Henry was born in Long Island City, NY. I have been unable to locate him there. I would like to know more about where David came from. I have his wife, Marie St Clair living with their son Jacob Crawford in Whitby, Ont,. Canada where she died in 1846

David Crawford-2675

Henry Crawford-2674

David Perry Crawford-2940

Jacob Crawford-2941

Thanks for any help

Gender: Male
Birth Year: abt 1783
Birth Place: Germany
[Long Island, New York] 
Age at Death: 87
Death Date: 8 Oct 1870
Death Place: Ontario, Ontario, Canada
