My great-grandmother was Lydia Ann Crawford who married John Wesley Overstreet in Bedford County in 1879. Her parents, per marriage license, are listed as William and Polly Crawford and she was born in Botetourt Co per marriage license. She also, had a brother, George W. Crawford who married Ida Ann Orange in Bedford Co. George and Ida were living in Amsterdam Dist. of Botetourt Co per 1930 census. In the 10+ years I have been doing genealogy, I have not found a Lydia Crawford with any Crawford family I have checked in Botetourt, Bedford, Rockbridge, or Roanoke Counties. She remains a mystery! I also, believe she may have had a brother, Elijah??? There are so many Crawfords with the same names - but no Lydia among them. Thanks for your interest.
