Here is some of my research on the Crawford's. It is by no means complete.



Libby - there are so many Ezekiel's that I wondered if you misunderstood which Martha was mine. She and her twin George were born in 1834.

Linda - you inquiry about Amy makes me say hmmm??? I had heard that Ezekiel's first and second wife were cousins, but haven't been able to prove it.
