Birth: 1835
Death: 1906

Enlisted as a private in Co. A, 102nd OVI, on 30 July 1862 at the age of 27. Appointed corporal on 16 March 1863. On 24 September 1864, while the regiment was in garrison at Decatur, AL, Corporal Crawford was assigned to a detachment that was given the mission of relieving Ft. Henderson at nearby Athens, AL, which was under siege by rebel cavalry under the command of CSA Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. After detraining, the detachment began fighting to gain the fort, and was within sight of it, when the fort was unexpectedly surrendered. Forrest then turned his troopers on the detachment, forcing most of the men in it to surrender. Corporal Crawford was able to escape, but was wounded during the fighting. He was mustered out at Camp Dennison, OH, on 8 June 1865.
