Biography of Lizzie M. Crawford, 1862- ?

By Cindy Ingold, Gender Studies and Multicultural Services Librarian, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois.

Lizzie M. Crawford was born in about 1862 in Maine. She was married but no information can be found about her husband.

At some point, she moved to Utah. The 1910 census lists a Lizzie M. Crawford who was 48 years old and was widowed. Her address was Salt Lake City, Utah. Lizzie held a position in the Office of the State Land Board around 1915. She also may have been a state delegate after 1900 to one national party convention in Washington. She still lived in Salt Lake City in 1930 and worked in the State land office, but no date can be found for her death.
