Do you have any Y-DNA on your Crawford line? I think I am related to some Crawfords that came into the Dakotas from Canada. They were Crawfords from England. Let's chat.

Hello David

I don't have the Y-DNA on the Crawford line.

How are you related?

I am trying to trace the history and this is what I have so far:

William A. Crawford, Sr (b. Canada) married Sarah Champlin
--1800 Census says that dad was born in Mass. and mom was born in Penn. Maybe the name is Thomas and Cynthia (???)
--4 children: Mary, William A Jr, Myrtle, and Pearl

William A Crawford Jr married Jessie Picton. They were in IL and then moved to South Dakota.
--6 children: Arden, Robyn, Loren, David, Gene, and Bernice

I can't find any info on why they were in Canada (looks like a brief stay).

My personal email is

Thanks Laura

I don't think I got notice of your response 5 years ago, and just now stumbled upon it. What is the ancestry of William Alonzo Crawford?

Not sure I understand what you are asking

William Crawford Senior is my father's great-grandfather. I think he was born in Canada and maybe Canadian/Scottish. My aunt thinks that he wasn't around but had 2 brothers Clifford and David that were. I actually wondered if he was adopted.
I know he lived in Whiteside, IL with his wife Sarah Champlin. One of their kids were born in Iowa prior to IL. They later moved to South Dakota. He passed away in South Dakota in 1890.

His son is William Crawford Junior was a weed exterminator. He was married prior to being married to Jessie Picton. This is my grandfater's father.

Thank you for such a prompt response. Based on your account, I remain unsure of any connection to my CRAWFORD line over the last 200 years. It might help if you have completed any DNA testing. Let us know.
