I am looking for any info in regards to Elizabeth or Hiram Berdan. Elizabeth was my great great grandmother. She married Francis Marion Crawford, had 4 children, Harold, Eleanora, Bertram and Claire. They lived in Sorrento, Italy.
Hiram Berdan was a General in the Civil War and responsible for the creation of the Berdan Firearm and the first US sharpshooters. The only referance to his wife is as Mrs. Hiram Berdan. Hiram had his son-in-law Francis Marion Crawford fighting a law suit againt the Government because he was never compensated for the use of his firearms in the war, which he was promised.
I have no referance to any other siblings. I believe that Elizabeth's middle name was Christophers, which may have been her mother's maiden name. But this is not confirmed.
Any insite into the Berdan Family would be helpful. I just started on this line and really have nothing to go on.
