Ed, son of James and Mary Sutherland Craswell, was born on Prince Edward Island. He lost both his parents at a very young age and was raised by an aunt in Charlotteville, PEI.

Around the age of 16, he joined his brother Herbert and immigrated to Willmar MN. He worked as a laborer and then for the Great Northern Railroad.

At the age of 27, he married Carrie Hanson in Breckenridge, MN. They had a son and a daughter, but the marriage was an unhappy one and they divorced.

About 1900, his railroad job as a stationery engineer took him to the state of WA. By 1910 he was working as a bartender and later worked as a clerk in a cigar store.

Ed passed away of heart disease at the age of 56.
