Crawford and Eastwood Families



The Crawford and Eastwood families settled in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas in the latter half of the nineteenth century. James Abram Eastwood traveled on the Chautauqua Circuit and was away from home quite often. He kept in touch with the family by sending an almost constant flow of letters. He had five children, one of whom, Sarah Anna Mary, married Eugene Crawford. This couple farmed near Prescott, Kansas and kept extensive records of their business. Their son David became a music professor and wrote home often. These letters comprise the larger part of this collection.   [Jacque Roethler 2005]
