Crawford County, the 57th county formed in Georgia, was one of 4 counties created on December 9th, 1822 from Creek Indian lands and part of Houston County by an act of the General Assembly (Georgia Laws 1822, p. 21). The county was named for William H. Crawford, who was U.S. Secretary of the Treasury (as well as Georgia's first candidate for U.S. President in 1824), when the county was created.
This site is brand new, but everything old is still here.  Obituaries are listed under Newspapers and Funeral Homes are linked under Cemeteries.  All the Family pages have been combined with the Surnames page. We are starting a new Surnames Index, so watch for additions.

We have added forms to make it easy for you to contribute your own information to the site.  If you have photographs or transcriptions that are just too big for the forms, please contact me and I'll add the items for you.

Search is now provided by Google.  That should help you find your Crawford ancestors on the site.

If you don't find your ancestor in Crawford, you should also check the surrounding counties:  Starting at the north and moving clockwise, they are Monroe, Bibb, Peach, Taylor and Upson.
