Wife of Alexander Crawford, maiden name reported as Crumley and Abercrombie in various places. It is believed she is the daughter of James Abercrombie due to property documents related to Mr. Abercrombie selling land to his son-in-law, Alexander Crawford.

Speculation about her maiden name: Abercrombie or Crumley? Since oral transmission of information was a primary method, consider the similarity in sound of 'Christy Anna Crumley' and 'Christy Abercrombie.' The comparison helps one offer some forgiveness in the muddy records surrounding her maiden name. Her uncle even signed his own name as "Alexander Crombie" suggesting Crumley is a variation on Crombie.
