Crawford County Kansas
Organized in 1867
The county seat is Girard.

Welcome to Kansas Trails' Crawford County.  One goal is helping you find your ancetors by placing data online for the free use of all researchers.  My name is Rick Evans and as your Crawford County, Kansas host I will try to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all.  We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree.  Remember: submitted data will always be YOURS.  CONTROL of any submitted data is yours and at any time you can choose to remove it or keep it online.  We thank you for visiting and hope you will come back again to view the updates we make to the site.

Crawford County was named for Samuel J. Crawford, Governor of Kansas.  Although both Pittsburg and Frontenac are larger cities, Girard is the county seat; other cities include Arma, Cherokee, Mulberry, McCune, Arcadia, Walnut and Hepler.  The communities of Beulah, Brazilton, Camp 50, Capaldo, Chicopee, Cornell, Croweburg, Curranville, Dunkirk, Englevale, Farlington, Foxtown, Franklin, Greenbush, Gross, Kirkwood, Klondike, Monmouth, Opolis, Radley, Ringo, South Radley and Yale lie within the boundaries of Crawford County.

Crawford County is located in the Southeastern corner of the State of Kansas. The County is bordered by the State of Missouri to the east; Cherokee County, Kansas to the South; Bourbon County, Kansas to the North and Labette County and Neosho County, Kansas to the West.
