James Crawford

Relationship to President Jackson: Maternal Uncle by marriage

Father: John Crawford - A placeholder profile has been created, since there is no evidence supporting any of the existing John Crawford profiles. John S Crawford or possibly Colonel John Crawford, of Ayrshire[1]. John S Crawford has been detached as the father until evidence to support the relationship is found.

Conclusion: Col. John Crawford 'of Ayrshire, Scotland' has been the traditional Father of James Crawford, Robert Crawford, and Joseph Crawford of Lancaster County, South Carolina, accepted by most genealogists to date.[2] The date of birth for John is not known. There is no other information about this John currently accepted. The date of birth currently on his profile is likely a bit too early.

Mother: Currently unknown. Mary McConnell has been detached as the mother until evidence to support the relationship is found.

Alternatives: John Crawford and Hannah Anderson - This couple is actually a cousin of James Crawford, husband of Jane Hutchinson.

Conclusion: The spouse of John Crawford 'of Scotland' is not known. John S Crawford and Mary McConnell are not the parents of this James, or his brothers, Joseph and Robert Crawford of the Waxhaws, in South Carolina. This conclusion is based on numerous conflations made by early researchers, specifically those based on the fabricated Horn Papers.

Date of Birth: about 1728 - 1730 - no source

Place of Birth: Pennsylvania[1] or Ireland - no source

Siblings:

  • Robert Crawford, brother of this James[1][3] died 5 Oct 1801, in South Carolina.[4]
  • Joseph Crawford, the brother of this James[3]

Spouse: Jane Hutchinson (see below)

Date of Marriage:

Place of Marriage:

Note: There is no documented source for the marriage location in Pennsylvania. In fact, several sources indicate that he arrived at Charleston, Virginia Colony and not Pennsylvania. It is likely that they married before leaving Ireland.

Date of Immigration: 1765

Place of Immigration:

Details: James Crawford, along with his two brothers, Robert and Joseph Crawford; along with Andrew Jackson, his wife and two children emigrated to America in 1765.[3] The argument for this to be the case hinges on this James being the son of Col. John Crawford of Pennsylvania and the same James who accompanied Andrew Jackson to the Americas.

Second Alternate Claim - The arrival date given in The Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine, dated November 1920, pg 640, is "about 1760".[1] In 1763, Robert and Joseph Crawford bought the Crawford lands in the Washaws - original source: Deed Book 5, pg 215, Mecklenburgh County records, Charlotte). James resided on a portion of this land and received title to it on September 12, 1768.

This may be helpful for this family? I am not exactly sure, as I have not reviewed it yet. Author is John Hutchinson, my understanding is he has the original family bible from John Crawford who emigrated. (This record is from the Houston Public Library, but you can purchase it also online)

This is interesting and I'm curious to know if he cites any original sources in the book. I've looked it up online and cannot justify paying that kind of money for a book I will rarely use. Perhaps someone from this line has a copy and can provide more information about what is contained in the book about this family?
