The LAGenWeb transcription notes the assassination of Judge T. S. Crawford not B. S. Crawford as is seen in the above article. I see alot of common spelling errors in newspapers. The LAGenWeb transcription did not note its source, except for “library clipping”.
BLM GLO RECORD CALDWELL PARISH 1861
Indicates that T. S. Crawford of Caldwell Parish fought in the Mexican War. The LAGenWeb archives note a memorial tribute written for Judge Edward Berry by T. S. Crawford, President.
