Crawford, Alexander a Baptist minister, was a native of Argyleshire, Scotland. He united with the Independent (Congregational) Church of the Isle of Arran at nineteen, went to Edinburgh to study under Haldane and Ewing, and was immersed. In 1811 he emigrated to Yarmouth, N.S., where he remained three years. In 1814 he removed to Prince Edward's Island, and labored with success in planting Baptist churches throughout the island. He died in March, 1828, aged forty-two. He published Believer Immersion as Opposed to Unbeliever Sprinkling (1827). See Bill, Hist. of the Baptists in the Maritime Provinces, page 662.
