Looking for information on the fate of Henry C Crawford b.1828/29 TN who married Elizabeth "Betsey" Josephine Franklin on 3/30/1867 in Clay Co, MO. They were living in Louisville, Pottawatomie Co, KS. In 1880, Henry is living alone with four children in Comanche Co, TX. The children are:
Eliza R. Crawford b. Aug 1869 KS
Henry C Crawford Jr b.1870-1871 KS
William R Crawford b.1862-1863 AR(?)
Greene R Crawford b. 1875-1876 TX.
Elizabeth/Betsey must have died 1876-1880. Would like to find her final resting place. Her father is William Riley Franklin who was living in Kaufman Co, TX at the time of his death in 1891. Her mother Josephine Pryor Franklin is living in MO in 1880 with her father, Jefferson Pryor in Clinton Co, MO. They do not live together after the Civil War. Have absolutely no info at all on the parents, birthplace, etc of Henry C Crawford, SR, etc that his birthdate is somewhere 1828-1829 and in the two census records I can find he consistently lists his birth place as TENNESSEE. In 1880 he lists his parents as both being born in NC. Can anyone shed some light on this family. I have a lot on the FRANKLIN line.
