Both are buried in the Union Presbyterian Cemetery between Aberdeen and Okolona, Mississippi. Her Parents Aaron and Lucy Ann are also buried there.

Mrs. Fannie B. Crawford had this to say about Milton, "He was so eccentric and was always making fun of his wife. He weighed over 400 pounds and had not seen his feet in years. He hired a little black boy to help him tie his shoes, and with other personal matters. He was as smart as he could be. He owned a large cotton plantation and about one hundred slaves before the Civil War."
Mary Louise Redus and Major Milton Crawford had five children, all given first names of a prominent family from Milton's home town. Only two of their children had descendants.
