Ida Roberta Ashby1,2

b. 21 September 1866, d. 21 March 1951
Father*Frank Ashby3 d. b 1870
Mother*Mary Jane Wine2 b. 1845, d. 9 Jun 1894
Brick Wall*Harry Crawford of Braxton County, West Virginia, definitely qualifies as a serious Brick Wall. We have found only one record with his name on it, and we can't be sure it's even accurate. Sadly, here's all we know about him:

On the 1953 death certificate of Evalena Crawford, whose mother was Ida Roberta (Ashby) Crawford, Evalena's father's name was reported as Harry Crawford. The informant on the death certificate was Evalena's husband, Roy C. Stoner. He reported Evalena's mother's maiden name as Ida Roberta Crawford, which was both her stepfather's surname as well as her husband Harry's. Ida Roberta's maiden name was actually Ashby, the surname of her biological father, who was her mother's first husband. If Harry was the father of Evalena Crawford, who was born on 1 December 1896, he was likely also the father of Mary Jane Crawford, who was born on 4 March 1894 and was also the daughter of Ida Roberta (Ashby) Crawford. We have not been able to determine Harry's parents, or which of the Crawford families of West Virginia he belonged to.

While our Crawford research in this project has focused primarily on the extended family of John Crawford and Susan (Woods) Crawford of Virginia, and then later of Braxton County, West Virginia, there were several additional Crawford families in the area during the same time period. It seems logical to us that some of those other families may be connected, although we have not yet been successful, after several attempts, to prove that theory. Most of our "failures" are not included in this project because we have been able to satisfy ourselves that Harry was not among them. So, after many hours, over several weeks, of researching Crawfords in Virginia and West Virginia, our search for Harry has come to a disappointing end. Who was he?... We absolutely hate to give up, so we'll share an idea that will continue to haunt us until we learn the truth...

What if John Henry Crawford was Harry?... John Henry Crawford was the only son of Charles Crawford and Frances (Donaldson) Crawford of Braxton County. He was a nephew of William Crawford, the second husband of Mary Jane (Wine) Ashby Crawford, who was the mother of Ida Roberta (Ashby) Crawford. Adding to our tangled web of extended family, Ida Roberta's older sister, Margaret Alice (Ashby) Crawford, married Jordan J. Crawford, who was a brother of William Crawford and another uncle of John Henry Crawford.

Our conjecture, at first, appears not to work because John Henry married Amanda C. Bragg in April 1889 and they were enumerated together, with John's mother, Frances (Donaldson) Crawford, shortly before John's death in 1900. However, during the ten year period between 1889 and 1900, we have found no records for either John Henry or Amanda and much could have happened during those ten years. We learned from the 1900 census, for example, that during their marriage, Amanda had no children. What if she and John separated, and/or divorced, in the early years of their marriage? What if John Henry had a second short marriage with Ida Roberta which produced two daughters, Mary Jane and Evalena in 1894 and 1896? What if John, whose middle name was Henry, was called Harry? On the 1900 census, Ida Roberta was enumerated with her daughters in the household of a relative and recorded as divorced, and John Henry was enumerated with Amanda and his mother and recorded as married. John died one week after the 1900 census was taken, and Amanda married her second husband less than four months after John's death. As we see it, it is possible that John Henry Crawford could be our Brick Wall Harry Crawford. What do you think?... And if not John Henry... Who?..

If anyone reading this has information about Harry Crawford or John Henry Crawford, please contact us. We will greatly appreciate your help.4,5

Marriage*She married first Harry Crawford.1,11,4
Divorce*before June 1900Ida Roberta Crawford and Harry Crawford were divorced before June 1900, when Ida was enumerated on the 1900 census as divorced, with her two young daughters, in the household of her grand aunt in Braxton County, West Virginia.12
(Grandniece) Census US 19009 June 1900Ida Roberta Crawford was enumerated with her two daughters on the 1900 census taken on 9 June 1900 in the household of her widowed grandaunt, Elizabeth (Wine) Conrad, who was the sister of Roberta's maternal grandfather, James Wine, in Salt Lick, Braxton County, West Virginia. Roberta was 39 years of age, divorced, unable to read or write, and worked as the family's housekeeper. Her daughters, Mary Jane Crawford and Evaline Crawford, were ages 5 and 3 years, respectively.12
Marriage*1905She married second Adolph Johnson in 1905 in Ohio County, West Virginia.1,13
Census US 1910*25 April 1910Ida and Adolph Johnson were enumerated on the 1910 census taken on 25 April 1910 in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Adolph was 38 years of age, had immigrated to the United States in 1900 and was not naturalized. He was able to read and write and worked for wages as a day laborer. He had been working on 15 April 1910, and had been out of work for 3 weeks during 1909. Ida was 39 years of age, and was able to read and write. They rented their house, had been married for six years and the census taker recorded it as the first marriage for each of them. Ida was reported to have given birth to three children, two of whom were living. Two children were enumerated with the couple in 1910. Ida's younger daughter from her first marriage, Evaline Johnson, was recorded with the surname Johnson and as 6 years old, although she was actually about age 13. She was able to read and write and had attended school within the census year. The couple's daughter, Alice Johnson, was 4 years old. Also enumerated in the Johnson household in 1910 was Grace Chase, who was 21 years of age, had been born in Pennsylvania, and worked for wages doing housework for the family. Ida's elder daughter, Mary Jane (Crawford) Melrose, had married and may have been missed by the census taker as they traveled between West Virginia, where they likely married, and Ohio, where their first child was born in 1911.14
Census US 1920*22 January 1920Ida R. Johnson was enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 22 January 1920 in the rear at 1024 Chapline Street, Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. She was 53 years of age, able to read, write and speak English, and worked for wages as a dishwasher in a hotel. She was recorded as married, although her husband wasn't with her. He was believed to have disappeared from Ida's life while on a trip to Lorain County, Ohio. A daughter and a granddaughter were enumerated with Ida in 1920. Her daughter, Alice Johnson, was 14 years old and able to read, write and speak English. Her granddaughter, Margaret Melrose, the daughter of Ida's daughter, Mary Jane Crawford, was 7 years old. Alice and Margaret had attended school within the census year. Margaret's mother and brother, Lewis, who was 2 years old, were enumerated in Smith, Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1920 in the household of Joseph Fernandez, their mother's second husband.15,16
(Mother) Census US 194011 April 1940Ida Johnson was enumerated on the 1940 census taken on 11 April 1940 in the household of her divorced daughter, Alice Kershaw, and her son, Richard Leo Kershaw Jr., on Second Street, Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio. Ida was 72 years of age, and had completed her education through the 8th grade of Elementary School. She was unable to work, and reported having other income. Her marital status was unclear because she was recorded with an M, meaning married, and the M was crossed out with no further information. Everyone in the household had lived in the same place, although not the same house, on 1 April 1935.17
