I have been recently researching family history and found this History of Crawford County to be quite interesting. My grandmother's brother and family are featured as are so many. This answered questions for me that were very helpful. I spent several hours last evening reading about the wonderful folks of Crawford County. I see why my Dad's family came to this area after emigrating from Sweden.
