HOMER B. CRAWFORD, a son of Abel and Mary Crawford, was born in Island Creek township, June 24, 1851. He has been engaged in farming all his life, with considerable success, and in connection with this, has given much attention to threshing. He is a republican in politics, though not an active partisan, and is regarded as one of the substantial citizens of the township. Mr. Crawford was married in March 1875 to Nancy J. Barr, by whom he had two children, Frank B. and Charles, who died in infancy. This wife died in 1879, and in 1886 he was married to Maggie J., daughter of John Shaw, deceased, formerly a resident of this township. BY the latter union Mr. Crawford has one child, Lloyd S. He and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
