Crawfordites Abroad 1896

Compiled by Sue Jones.
This list of names appeared in the Robinson Argus, usually in the January first issue or the second. It is a listing of the people who subscribed to the Argus that were originally from Crawford County, or who had lived in the county for a number of years, and had moved out of the county but still subscribed to the Argus. The listing of subscribers ran for nearly 20 years and I hope to be able to transcribe all lists for this web page. About three years appeared previously in the Crawford County Genealogical Society Newsletter in the 1990s, but not all of the years were reprinted.

Names of Many who Left our Fair County to Seek their Fortunes Elsewhere. The following list of former citizens of Crawford County embraces about 700 persons. It is by far the most complete list published, and friends in various parts of the county, including our very obliging friends of the Hutsonville Herald, Palestine News, Oblong Ledger and Flat Rock Advocate, have our thanks and those of our readers for so kindly assisting us in the matter. The list, although large and interesting, is of course far from complete. After you read it, make a list of those omitted and mail it to us and their names will be published in a subsequent issue. You will observe that the Constitution doesn't do anything by halves and your appreciation of this list will be ample pay for the time and trouble collecting it. You will find in it many persons that you have been anxious to hear of, but knew nothing of their whereabouts.

The list tells the story of the restlessness of the American citizen, ambitious and alert to find that ideal country further on, with its fancied opportunities for great prosperity. The Constitution sincerely hopes that all of the wanderers are prospering, and it voices the sentiment of their friends in old Crawford when we express the wish that circumstances may arise that will permit them to pay their old home a visit and again clasp friendly hands in a renewal of old-time acquaintances.
