Crawford, Joseph a Methodist Episcopal minister, entered the travelling connection in 1797. He occupied many of the most important appointments in the New England and New York Conferences, and had great success: but in 1820 was expelled from the New York Conference, for some cause now unknown, after which he entirely disappeared.
