Crawford
« on: Sunday 09 June 19 19:25 BST (UK) »
Hi, I am trying to find details of Children of Samuel Crawford and Mary Jane Crawford (Nee) Gibson.
Children's births are as follows.
Catherine 1870
Mary 1872
Eliza Jane 1874
Martha 1879
amongst others, they were all born in Dromore Middle, Clogher, Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

Catherine appears as a 23-year-old on 1901 census again as a 40-year-old on the 1911 census.

This is where the trail has gone cold.

Can anyone help as to where these 4 girls have gone?

Passenger lists are a possibility

Any help much appreciated.

Presumably you found this on the National Probate Calendar?
In which case her brother-in-law will be the executor, or had obtained Administration.

Only the copy of the will tells you who she left assets to.

Could you post those 2 censuses and also have a look at the 2 originals, as the ages differ a lot, and the signature for head of household is not the same?

I see what you mean by the signatures. It could be the father and son's writing. That could also be the reason why the ages are all out. Just a thought.
