There were a number of Robert Crawford's born about 1819 in Scotland. Would you know the city and or county? Are his parents names known to you? Did he stay in Scotland, or could he be found in a later census in another country and if so, which one?

Robert Crawford's death certificate indicates that he was born in Shetland Islands. His father is shown as James Crawford and his mother as Elizabeth Crawford.


Any help to trace either Robert or Elizabeth would be appreciated.
My Thomas Crawford was born in 20 Feb 1807 in TN, he married Martha Reynolds and they came to Texas by 18304-5.  It was then called the Republic of Mexico.

They had 3 children before getting here but one died.  The area was called Nacogdoches Territory eventually and Thomas was one of three Commissioners to divided it up into 3-5 counties.  

A cousin and I tend to believe that Thomas came west due t the fact he was married to a woman of Indian blood as the time he left TN they were rounding up the Native Americans and starting the drive of the Trail of Tears.

In the Nacogdoches county is a Jesse H and Hannah Crawford that is dna documented to our Thomas.  Thomas was listed as their first born in a book by the club in Nacogdoches but a desendant denied it when I first started researching in 1970 but my cousin's dna and Kevan's dna proved they were from the same group, a group leading back to James and Elizabeth Engald or England Crawford.  It's confusing to say the least as they name the children same names as other members.  However, James was known to have Moses, Vineyard, James, Jesse, Thomas  and John as sons.  I have had a time in researching this line.

Martha Reynolds was the daughter of Isaac and Ann George Reynolds, George is known to be an Native American and we know for a fact that the family was political and it may not have been looked well on his marriage.  Both were influential men

I'd like to hear more from you.  Check out my site.  By the way, the date of birth was in our bible.

There was a Robert Crawford, with wife name Mary and with a daughter, Mary Elizabeth. Could his wife's name be Mary Elizabeth also?
