The Joseph Crawford with death year of 1820 should really be 1843.
From "Grave Sights of Cabarrus Co., NC, book 2" page 47, in the Poplar Tent Presbyterian Cemetery is Joseph Crawford d. 15 Aug. 1843 age 74 and Catherine Crawford d. 4 Apr. 1840, 58 yrs. wife of Joseph Crawford. Their son Allison as well as Joseph's parents are also buried here. David Crawford age 80 and wife Mary both died in 1820 and are Joseph's parents.
Joseph left a will dated April of 1843. He leaves his land to son Allison and names son-in-law Sydney McKinley who is my ancestor and another son-in-law.
