CROUCH, HIGGINS posted by Melissa J. Price on September 13, 1997

I am researching my CROUCH lineage. I have, thanks to the discovery of a long lost cousin: Mary Kathryn Crews-Kozy (thanks cuz!), traced it back to Elihu CROUCH (b. 14 Jul 1812 in Crawford Co., IL?; d. 25 Mar 1869 in Lawrence Co., IL) married (when?)Charity HIGGINS (b. 21 MAR 1824 in Crawford Co.? - d. 21 Mar 1901 in Lawrence Co., IL). They had at least two children: Alexander CROUCH (1842 - 1929) & Abram Newton "Abraham" CROUCH (b. 04 May 1857-d. 27 May 1909 in Lawrence Co., IL). I'd really like some info on Elihu's parentage. Either he or Charity was full-blooded Native American according to our "oral family history" not to mention my looks!<G> Please help if you can?
