Arthur H. Crawford (c1799) and Clarkey (---?) of Horry County, South Carolina
The author (Marty Grant) is not related to Arthur H. Crawford as far as can be determined.
Arthur H. Crawford was born ca 1798/99 per age of 61 on the 1860 census and 71 on 1870 census.) He was born in South Carolina, though perhaps not in the Horry County region.
I have not been able to determine who Arthur's parents were. Thomas Crawford seems to be the only available suspect so far. I have not done an exhaustive search of the records, so the answer may be out there somewhere. I believe Arthur to be a brother to David E. Crawford (1801) mainly because David named one of his sons "Arthur H." and they were the only two Crawford families in Horry at the time.
Arthur should have been with his parents for the 1800 census, aged about 1 year or less, so he should have been in the under 10 age group. Horry County did not yet exist in 1800 being part of Georgetown District at that time. There were no Crawfords in Georgetown in 1800.
Arthur would have been about 11 years old by the 1810 census, so he should have been in the 10 and up but under 16 age group. There were no Crawfords in Horry at all in 1810. There was a Thomas Cranford listed though and that is probably a typo for I've found other records showing him as a Crawford. Thomas had 3 boys in the correct age group. One of them could be Arthur.
On 16 Sep 1819, Arthur H. Crawford and Samuel Floyd witnessed a deed from Willis Rawls to Thomas Gerral. This is the earliest record I've found for Arthur. [Horry Co, SC Deed Book C1 page 61 from Horry County Historical Society Online http://www.hchsonline.org/ ]
He would have been about 21 by the 1820 census. There were no Crawfords in Horry for the 1820 census (nor any Cranfords.) However, the 1819 deed above does seem to show that Arthur was in Horry by this time. He may have been living with some other family for the 1820 census.
Arthur H. Crawford married Clarkey B. (---?) sometime between 1820 and 1830, probably close to 1830. Clarkey was born ca 1806/07 (per age of 53 on 1860 census, and 63 on 1870 census.) I don't know her maiden name.
Arthur was listed on the 1830 census in Horry. His brother David may have been living with him, or at least someone that age was listed there. There was also a female aged 60-69, who could be his mother, or perhaps not. It could just as easily be Arthur's mother-in-law. There is no way to know for sure.

Arthur H. Crawford was listed on the 1845 Horry District Tax List with 601 acres and 4 slaves. [Horry County Historical Society Online http://www.hchsonline.org/ ]
They were still in Horry District for the 1850 census. David and family were listed too, but not nearby. Arthur's age is listed as 37 which is wrong, but that is a common census problem.

I was unable to find Arthur and Clarkey on the 1880 census. They may have died in the 1870's.
