SOURCES:
1.  My daughter's mother-in-law, Millie Crawford Johnson, gave me much of this information herself.
2.  From there, I used Ancestry.com to track some of these families through the various U. S. censuses.
3.  Today, 5 October 2008, Mrs. Tom (Iris) Crawford contacted me with access to their page (located at http://mysite.verizon.net/res7zoj4/id3.html), from which I gleaned the information shown below in this light blue color.
4.  In 2013, I began using Findagrave.com to locate the final resting places of some of these family members.

This is clearly our Andrew. But he has the POB pattern of PA/PA/PA; therefore, I believe that NEITHER of the above two Andrew S. Crawfords (i.e., in 1870 and 1880) is he, since one has the pattern PA/PA/Ireland and the other PA/PA/OH.
