Ray Everly for several years kept a personal homepage on information
for Crawford Co., IL. In his honor, after he passed away, we captured
his site, at his widow's request, and it's under the information menu above.

Our Mission - To bring those people together who are interested in history, especially in the history of Crawford County, Illinois.

Crawford County was formed on December 31, 1816 from Edwards County and is located in the central eastern portion of the state bordering Sullivan County, Indiana. (County Map) The county was named in honor of William H.
