    "Dereneive
    January 2nd 1878
    My very dear and mutch loved Sarah Jane,
    We recieved your kind letter yesterday, bearing date October 25th which give us to know that you and Joseph and children and also Robert John William and wife and Baby were all in good health, a blessing which we all enjoy at present thanks be to the giver of all goodness for His kind dealings to us His unworthy Creatures.
    My dear Sarah Jane must beg you to forgive me for not answering your last letter. It was nor neglect nor forgetfulness on my part, for you were not one day out of my mind since that time I remembered you and your husband and children three times a day at the throne of grace.
    But the reason I did not write was because James and Henry and Caroline was urging me to let them go to Australia and I did not know whether I might let them go or not and that what kept me from writing.
    ...I would know whether I would fit them out and let them go. I believe they will not go at this time the more it is easy getting to New South Wales at present they would get away for 2 pounds each but er have considered it is better to wait a while and go all together if the Lord spares life and health as I am tired letting them go in parts. Your Uncle James Moore has a son and a daughter Christopher going to New South Wales. They are to sail sometime this month. I don't know the day yet. They are to be with us tomorrow to take their dinner with us. I suppose for the last time. They are of mind to call with uncle John Johnston to see them if all bees well. It is their Uncle Christopher Moore that lives in the Colony Victoria that they are pushing. You say Robert John has got no housekeeper yet Margaret Moore would make a good housekeeper in this country but I don't know whether she might know much about it in Australia or not. But one thing I believe she is a good Christian and that hides a good many defects in temporal affairs.
    I am thankful to Joseph for the newspaper. It is a token of kindness. Dear Sarah our youngest one Leasha bees often asking us what sort of girl you were. She would like to see you. She says we have a letter from William Wilson a few days ago.........and him and family is well Eliza and him and family is well Also their friends over here. This year the potatoes is as bad as they were the first year they failed. I think if the people would meet with another season like this they would to start in any Colony they get to. I think it would be easier taking up land in Queensland than in New South Wales if it would be near as good but I suppose it is not as good as New South Wales.
    We are still in hopes of seeing you all yet if the Lord spares life and health. There will be 3 of William Moffits sons in the ship with the Moores and a daughter of widow James Brandons of ................in the ship with them.
    I must conclude by saying your mother, brothers, and sisters joins me in sending our love to you and Joseph and son and daughter and William and wife and Baby and Robert John in the kindest manner
    From your ever loving parents
    William and Margaret Crawford
    Please write soon."1

William Crawford

M, b. 15 August 1819, d. 1893

This photo was discovered behind a framed portrait of Henry Crawford and may be a photo of his parents William and Margaret Crawford of Derryneeve.
  • William Crawford was born on 15 August 1819 in Dereneive (Derryneeve), County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.1
  • He was the son of William Crawford and Sarah Loane.
  • William Crawford married Margaret Maxwell circa 1837 in Ireland.
  • On 2 January 1878 Sarah's father William wrote this letter to her: - (sic)
    "Dereneive
    January 2nd 1878
    My very dear and mutch loved Sarah Jane,
    We recieved your kind letter yesterday, bearing date October 25th which give us to know that you and Joseph and children and also Robert John William and wife and Baby were all in good health, a blessing which we all enjoy at present thanks be to the giver of all goodness for His kind dealings to us His unworthy Creatures.
    My dear Sarah Jane must beg you to forgive me for not answering your last letter. It was nor neglect nor forgetfulness on my part, for you were not one day out of my mind since that time I remembered you and your husband and children three times a day at the throne of grace.
    But the reason I did not write was because James and Henry and Caroline was urging me to let them go to Australia and I did not know whether I might let them go or not and that what kept me from writing.
    ...I would know whether I would fit them out and let them go. I believe they will not go at this time the more it is easy getting to New South Wales at present they would get away for 2 pounds each but er have considered it is better to wait a while and go all together if the Lord spares life and health as I am tired letting them go in parts. Your Uncle James Moore has a son and a daughter Christopher going to New South Wales. They are to sail sometime this month. I don't know the day yet. They are to be with us tomorrow to take their dinner with us. I suppose for the last time. They are of mind to call with uncle John Johnston to see them if all bees well. It is their Uncle Christopher Moore that lives in the Colony Victoria that they are pushing. You say Robert John has got no housekeeper yet Margaret Moore would make a good housekeeper in this country but I don't know whether she might know much about it in Australia or not. But one thing I believe she is a good Christian and that hides a good many defects in temporal affairs.
    I am thankful to Joseph for the newspaper. It is a token of kindness. Dear Sarah our youngest one Leasha bees often asking us what sort of girl you were. She would like to see you. She says we have a letter from William Wilson a few days ago.........and him and family is well Eliza and him and family is well Also their friends over here. This year the potatoes is as bad as they were the first year they failed. I think if the people would meet with another season like this they would to start in any Colony they get to. I think it would be easier taking up land in Queensland than in New South Wales if it would be near as good but I suppose it is not as good as New South Wales.
    We are still in hopes of seeing you all yet if the Lord spares life and health. There will be 3 of William Moffits sons in the ship with the Moores and a daughter of widow James Brandons of ................in the ship with them.
    I must conclude by saying your mother, brothers, and sisters joins me in sending our love to you and Joseph and son and daughter and William and wife and Baby and Robert John in the kindest manner
    From your ever loving parents
    William and Margaret Crawford
    Please write soon."2
