Seeking information on these ancestors, living in Benton, Yates Co, NY, in the early 1800's:

Archibald Crawford, wife Phebe Boyd, children: Coleman Crawford, Maria Crawford, Susan Crawford, Lewis Crawford, Barger Crawford, Sarah Crawford.

Susan Crawford, born about 1815, married Samuel Matthew Cole on 31 December 1834 in Penn Yan, Yates Co, NY. They had a number of children and migrated from Penn Yan to Warren Co, PA; then to Naperville, IL; finally settling in Cresco, New Oregon Township, Howard Co, IA. Their children were: Harriett Cole (1837), Ezra M Cole (1839), Julia P Cole (1842), Charles M Cole (1846), Susan R Cole (1849), Linnie Cole (1853), and Lewis M Cole (1856).

Susan's sister, Emelia/Amelia Crawford (is this Maria Crawford?), born about 1804, married Cephas Brown about 1822 in Yates Co, NY. Cephas was a wagonmaker. Cephas and Emelia/Amelia have three children born in Yates Co, NY, and relocate to Batavia, Branch Co, MI, sometime between 1840 and 1850. Their children were: Mary Brown (born about 1824), Coleman C Brown (born about 1826), Susan A Brown (born about 1830)
