Birth: Oct. 3, 1889
Adams County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1955
Wisconsin, USA

My Great Grandfather 1930 census:
John L Crawford M 39, Iva Crawford F 36. Walter Crawford M 16, Dorothy Crawford F 13, Robert Crawford M 11, Jesse Crawford M 5, and Anita Crawford F 0.
John became an orphan at the age of 6. When Johns parents died his siblings were determined to care for him. Kate Witz was employed as a school teacher and Anna Witz kept house and cared for him while brother Fred Witz farmed and worked for neighbors for wages. When Fred died in 1899 in a horse accident, the local authorities placed John in an orphanage. After a number of bizzarre placements young John was raised by a Mr. Miller who taught him the blacksmith trade. Johns old Smithy still stands in Briggsville, WI as of 2004
