Crawford and Ewing Families in Mercer, Washington, Boyle and Marion Counties

Cyrus Crawford, born December 3, 1802, died September 23, 1855.  Mahala F., daughter of Harrison and Ruth Walker, & wife of Cyrus Crawford, born April 1, 1811, died January 22, 1857.  They were married May 25, 1837.  Perryville Cemetery, Boyle County, Kentucky.Samuel Crawford, born November 4, 1787, died August 14, 1868.

In the Perryville Cemetery, Boyle County, there are graves of two brothers – Samuel and Cyrus Crawford – and their wives.  The brothers were the sons of Thomas Crawford and Mary Ewing, both from Chester County, Pennsylvania.  When they moved to this area Boyle was still part of Mercer County, not becoming a county until 1842.  Both Crawford and Ewing families moved to Kentucky, settling in Mercer and Washington, and after the formation of Boyle and Marion, some families were in the areas that became the two new counties.  The two families intermarried – Samuel Crawford married his first cousin, Catherine Ewing, daughter of Samuel Ewing and Margaret McMichael.  Samuel’s brother Thomas married Catherine’s sister, Rebecca.

Samuel Crawford, born November 14, 1787, died August 14, 1863.

Catherine, wife of Samuel Crawford, born March 21, 1790, died July 10, 1861, aged 71 years, 3 months, 19 days.
