Interview with Josiah Crawford's Wife
Here is an interesting copy of notes from an interview with Mrs. Josiah Crawford about a young Abraham Lincoln, from the Indiana Historical Society.
Her husband loaned Lincoln the book "Weems Life Of Washington", which was damaged while Lincoln had it. Josiah had him work for three days to compensate for the damage.

It was interesting to learn that Josiah appears to have been only 7 years older than Abraham.

A photo of Elizabeth Crawford is on her Find A Grave website

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
