Barrows 1917 History of Fayette Co., IN. p.906: "William McCrory died in 1876, leaving a widow, four daughters and his wife's mother living on the home farm."; p.907 "William McCrory, one of the real 'old settlers' of Fayette county, was a native of Ireland, born on April 12, 1804, and was but six years of age when his parents came to this country. At a very early day in the settlement of Fayette county they came here and settled in the western part of Connersville township, at that time an unbroken forest, and there established their home. William McCrory had a brother, Robert McCrory, who also, in time, established his home in this country, locating in Fairview township, about a mile and a half northeast of Glenwood. He also had a daughter, Margaret Saxon, who lived in Fairview township. William McCrory grew to manhood in Connersville township and on March 22, 1838, married Melissa J. Iles, who was born in Kentucky on January 30, 1818, and who came with her parents to this country, the family settling near Fairview. After William McCrory's marriage he established his home on the farm now owned by Mr. Clark, and there he spent the remainder of his life, his death occurring on November 29, 1876. His widow survived him many years, her death occurring on January 28, 1892."
