Dave: Since there were numerous Crawfords named John and Andrew, I want to be as specific as possible.
Andrew Crawford whose will was dated 10 January 1791 and submitted for Probate February 1791, included names of his children as follows: John, James, Eunice, Pheba and married daughter, Margaret Vinzant (Vansandt), who is my 4th gr. grandmother. There was a witness to the will named Andrew Crawford Junr---likely a relative and possibly a nephew, but not his son. We've all learned that in those days junior and senior was used to differentiate between older and younger men of the same name and did not necessarily connote a father/son relationship.
