Alexander was reportedly killed by a lightning strike as he was pulling a barge on the river.
Crawford Cemetery was in use from 1846 to at least 1986, when the transcription below was made. At the point where the Roseville Road (legislative route 03028) touches the boundary between Bradys Bend and Perry Townships, go north toward Criswell on township road T332. Opposite the Iva Hicks residence look for a large evergreen tree on the hillside east of the road. A grassy lane leads to the cemetery, which is fenced and well-maintained.
Thy memory, my loved one, how precious, how dear;
Thy virtues shall live tho thy dust slumber here,
Till the last setting sun o'er this lone heart shall roll,
Will cherish thy worth, thou friend of my soul.
