Birth: Apr., 1814
Saratoga County
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 29, 1906

New York, USA

Daughter of Gershom Morehouse and Hannah Smith, Hannah Morehouse married John Crawford, 4 January 1838, Saratoga County, New York. By 1850 she and her husband, John Crawford, lived in Galway, Saratoga, NY. Reviews of the Crawford households in 1850, 1870, and 1880 suggest that the children were James, Ann, and Carrie.

Dates of birth, death, and marriage, and also burial location are courtesy of Findagrave contributor, Theodore Spear.

Gershom Morehouse had a brother who settled in the town of Ballston at an early day. He saw the many fine water-privileges furnished by the Kayadrossera creek, and sent word to Gershom, who was a young man of twenty-two and a millwright by trade, to come here and settle. He was then living at Greenfield, Litchfield Co., Conn., and came to Greenfield, at Middle Grove, in 1786. During that summer he built Gordon's mill, at Milton Centre, and a saw-mill at Middle Grove, on lands he had purchased upon his arrival. This was the first saw-mill in the town. At the end of two years he returned to his native place after the lady of his choice, Miss Hannah Smith, whom he married, and with her returned to his home, near Middle Grove. In 1792 he erected a grist-mill on his land on the Kayadrossera creek. This was the first grist-mill in town. He sold the saw-mill, grist-mill, and land to Dr. Isaac Youngs in 1792, and then settled on the farm now occupied by George Bishop. Here he lived till 1850, when he left the farm and lived with his children till his death, which occurred in 1857. He was during his life the leading millwright of this section and a superior workman. His work was performed in a very careful and conscientious manner, and very few mills were built in the vicinity which did not bear the impress of his work. Four of his children still survive him. They are Mrs. Esther Turrill, of Greenfield; Mrs. Henry Clute, of Providence; Mrs. John Crawford, of Galway; and Mrs. Mary A. Haner, of Wisconsin.
