The source of the information you print here I believe is "Descendants from First Families of Virginia and Maryland" by Maude Crowe. Someone actually posted the Crow chapter of this book online without realizing where it came from. You can find it here: http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/index/CROW/1998-11
. Look for the subject "Seven Generations of Crows.
I also have my line (actually my wife's line) traced back to Robert Crow b. 1751. I am reasonably certain that his father was also named Robert although the date of death may have been a little later than 1788. Maude Crow states that he died before 1789 without explaining why. I have some serious doubts about the rest of this lineage. I have found some information which leads me to believe that this Crow family may have migrated down into Virginia from up north. See my post #5753 on the Crow Genforum.
