From family stories I believe I found him in the 1880 Census as James M Crawell. His parents were Martin Crawell and Annie Crawell, both born in Ireland. The next census I am sure he is in is 1910 living in Kennewick, WA. Shortly after the birth of a son in 1914, he left the family and was never heard from again. He may have been killed in a bridge accident in Panama. Nothing is verfiable.
