I am still looking for any information on the Crownovers of Alabama. My Crownover ancestors came into Alabama sometime between 1815 and 1820. My ggggrandparents were John and Rachel Crownover of Lawrence Cty, AL. Their daughter Mary Ann married Issac N. Morrow in 1839. Mary Ann was born around 1820-1822.
From census records for 1820 in Alabama, there were a number of Crownovers living in Alabama and several in Lawrence Cty. Any info or connections to these individuals would be appreciated.

I have done extensive research on the Bossier Parish, Louisana Crownover family. My 3rd great grandfather was Abraham Abel Crownover. He settled in the area pre-1820 and lived there until he died in 1851. His daughter, Margaret Melissa Crownover Smith married John Ambrose Smith from Alabama. They are my 2nd great grandparents.
In researching this family I traveled to Benton, Bossier Parish and secured many courthouse documents. Among them were papers on Mary Ann Sandifer and William Crownover. I have them in my possession now. I will be happy to send you
copies. William was apparently from Alabama as he and his wife Mary Ann are listed in the US Census for Bossier Parish and it lists his place of birth as Alabama. Please contact me for more information.

I think that your William Crownover may be the brother to my John Crownover. If I remember correctly, there was a William Crownover listed in Lawrence County, Alabama in the 1820 or 1830 census. I have now connected my research with Dave Conover who has traced the family back to 16th century Holland. Send me an email and I will send you the website address for Dave Conover, I don't have it with me this morning.

Surnames: Crownover, Cannon
Abel Crownover was co-owner of a Land Patent in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana with Robert Cannon, my 5th great-grandfather, in 1837. I believe this Robert Cannon is my ancestor because he is living near Abel Crownover in the 1830 Claiborne Parish, Louisiana Federal Census.

I am interested in following Abel Crownover's migration from SC? to KY? to St. Clair, Illinois, to northeast Louisiana because it may be somehow associated my ancestor Robert Cannon's migration. Robert Cannon was b. SC, lived in KY, may have lived some in Illinois, was in NE LA as early as 1828, and later migrated to Houston and Anderson Counties in Texas in the late 1830's. I think Abel Crownover stayed in Louisiana while Robert Cannon and family migrated on to East Texas. Who knows, maybe Abel and Robert were from the same part of South Carolina? I just don't know much about Robert Cannon's past beyond where his children were born; the four children that I think I have found.

Any information you have about Abel's family and parentage and will share, I appreciate it greatly.

Thank you,

Marcella Snow

My maiden name is Crownover. I am the great-granddaughter of Daniel Turney Crownover who was born in 1812 and fought on the Confederate side during the Civil War. He lived in Jackson County in Alabama and raised a family of numerous children. His son John James Crowwnover, Sr. was my grandfather, and his son John J. Crownover, Jr. was my father. I know of quite a few of D. T. Crownover's decendants who live in Alabama.
