Biographical or Historical Data:
Born in Salem, Washington County, New York, in 1810, Isaac Crawford had five brothers. Their parents were strict Scotch-Irish Presbyterians, but four of their sons became Methodist preachers. Isaac received his education at Carman, New York, and was licensed to preach in 1834. He came to Indiana in 1835. In 1838, he moved to Johnson County, Indiana, and the next year married Mary St. John. He was appointed first to the Mooresville Circuit, and then to the Putnamville Circuit, as a Methodist minister. Isaac and Mary lived in Greencastle. He traveled with the bishop to help raise funds for the establishment of Greencastle College. He earned $100 per year as a Methodist minister. Isaac died at the age of 39 and was buried in Salem, Washington County, Indiana, in November 1849.
