I am working on the John CRAWFORD (1707-1770) & Jane HENDERSON (1709-aft 1770) family. They were married in County Tyrone, Ireland about 1729. They left Ireland with son Robert, born 17 Jun 1731, married (1) Martha WOOD (abt 1734-1756) and (2) Elizabeth ARMSTRONG (1734/35-1818) and died 16 Oct 1777.

John, Jane and sons Robert (Patriot) and Archibald arrived Stamford, Connecticut in Aug 1733. Archibald, born at sea on 13 Aug 1733, married Mary BENEDICT (1740-1813) and died 8 Jun 1806 Saratoga Springs, New York.


John & Jane then had two daughters Margaret, born 1735 Stamford, married Isaac SCRIBNER (1740-1818), and Ann, born 1737 Stamford, married John SMITH, Mr. SOPHER and Wills ROBINSON.


Then they had two more sons, John (Loyalist) born 7 Jun 1738 Stamford, married Mary BROWN (-1835) and died 4 Feb 1818 Kings Co., New Brunswick, and James (Loyalist) born 12 Apr 1743 Stamford, married Rachel BENEDICT (1744/45-1816) (sister of Mary) and died 8 May 1830 Long Beach, New Brunswick.

Ann and James were married on the same day in Stamford, 21 Feb 1765.
