Birth: Feb. 1, 1832
Lawrence County
Indiana, USA
Death: Aug. 29, 1917

LEONARD CRAWFORD was born in this township February 1, 1832, being the second of eight children of William and Melinda (Graham) Crawford. The father was a native of North Carolina, and the mother of Kentucky, and the removal to Indiana occurred about the year 1815. With but little advantage of securing an education and with time spent mainly at hard work on his father's farm, our subject passed his youth and early manhood.

He was united in marriage August 24, 1854, with Elizabeth Spear, who bore him six children, of whom these are now living: Joseph L., who married Annie Jackson; William H., who married Ida Thomas; Mary E., who became the wife of Robert Ingle; Martha L. and David A.

Mr. Crawford by industry, good management and good habits has now a farm of 274 acres, mostly well improved and stocked. He and wife are members of the Christian Church. He is an influential member of the Democratic party.
