A group of Crawford families are found in Rutherford Co NC on the 1790 census. Moses, James,
Isaac, and Thomas Crawford are on the 14th Co list, the present area of Henderson Co NC.
Thomas and Isaac received KY land grants on Sinking Creek in Warren Co KY in 1799, along
with about 20 other families from Rutherford/Buncombe Co NC. Around 1815 many of these
families are in Lincoln Co TN before moving into Jackson Co AL in the 1820's.
Moses Crawford was purchasing land from a Will Reed in Tryon Co NC in 1772.

Moore County, Tennessee was established by an act of the General Assembly of the State of
Tennessee in 1872. Most of its territory was out off Lincoln County, Tennessee. The members of
the Parkes family, immigrating to Tennessee from North Carolina, settled in what was then
Lincoln County, Tennessee. The section of country in what is now Moore County was first
settled in the first decade of the nineteenth century. Among the first settlers in what is now
Moore county were Woody B. Taylor and his wife, Nancy (Seay) Taylor, father of John H.
Taylor, who settled there in about the year 1809; Mrs. Agnes Motlow, widow of John Motlow of
South Carolina, a colonel in the patriot's army in the Revolutionary War, who settled there about
the year 1809 or 1810, with her sons, Zadoc, William, James, John and Felix, and a daughter,
Elizabeth, who married Andrew Walker, and Lauriett, a daughter, who married a Massey; and
Moses and Isaac Crawford. Moses Crawford came to what is now Moore County, Tennessee,
about the year 1809. While I was editor of the LYNCHBURG FALCON, I received a letter from
Moses Crawford in 1885, who was then living at Grand Island, Nebraska. This letter was
published in the Falcon of that date. In this letter Mr. Crawford said that he came to what is now
Moore County and settled at or near Lynchburg in 1809. That he "Attended the sale of lots when
the town was laid off in lots and sold". He stated that the valleys, when he settled there, were
covered with canebrakes. Mr. Crawford referred to the great northwestern corner of the State.
This shock was sensibly felt in this section of Middle Tennessee and Mr. Crawford in his letter


                                          Page 4 of 18
says: “the prevalent idea was that Judgment is knocking at the door. The earth reeled as a
drunken man. Mercy was sought and pardon granted in many cases... There was preaching every
four weeks at my father's house. Rev. Adams of Flat Creek was minister or pastor in charge. My
father and mother were old members of said church for years before. People came from far and
near to hear the Scripture propounded. The ministers were Adams, Hardy, Holman, and
Whitaker. The additions to the church were large every Sabbath. There were none but Baptists in
this neck of the woods. They used to take the applicants for baptism down to the ford, singing as
they went. The place for immersion was near where Rountree built his dam across Mulberry.
Revivals stopped and drinking liquor began. I think I knew some of your ancestors. Two brothers
by the name of Parks came there some time between 1815 and 1820, I think, with the Smiths.
Time rolled on and rolled them off, and I, too, soon shall follow."

(I included these Crawford’s because they eventually removed from Duck River area to the same
general area of John, Jesse, and James Crawford. The question might need to be considered as to
whether these families are in some way connected. Yet it is just as possible that there is no
connection at all.

Also Please note, I am of the “opinion” that any mention of Moses Crawford in the Lincoln Co.
TN. records may refer to this Moses who was it appears some blood relation to Anthony &
Thomas Crawford’s family group, as you well know Moses is a common name among
Crawford’s. -

Transcribed by Janelle Swearingen 1989

From 1801 to 1823 Col. Return Jonathan Meigs of Middletown, Connecticut was the agent to the
Cherokees. The Agency was first located at Southwest Point, then moved to Hiwassee Garrison
near Dayton, TN. Following a dispute over the title to the Garrison land, it was moved to
Calhoun, Tennessee. During the time Meigs was the agent, settlers passing through the Cherokee
land had to have a pass issued by the agent. In addition, some settlers who had special skills,
such as blacksmiths, were invited onto the land by the tribe. But there were also many intruders
who attempted to settle illegally and had to be removed by the agent. These lists are gleaned
from these records. Note that there is a lot of information on these rolls, and I am sure I
overlooked a lot of other important items.

I have also included a few other items of a genealogical interest.

The following are abstracts of records of genealogical interest taken from the records of the
Cherokee Indian Agency in Tennessee in the years 1801-1816. These are from the microfilm
copy, and the pages are not numbered. They are arranged in roughly chronological order.

removal &c. there was but 28;                  28. William Taylor

which makes but 6 of an increase.

Circumstances in the interim. All

those marked thus * in the second

column are the old settlers. All

those marked + are small families

increased by intermarriages with

the old settlers children; and conse

quently have but small families,

which are five in number




Charles Wells went early last winter to seek a place in the western country - - a few days ago he
returned & will soon go off. Robert Little and William Hartgrave has made but one crop, and had
been preparing to remove to Cumberland 6 weeks before orders-- One of the William Taylor's
lives in side the line - tends a little ground out -- Much more might be said on the concern.

There appears to be in the interim as aforesaid an increase of seventeen families. But the
circumstances relative to

those settler would be as proportionable as that of my settlement.
