(L) A young Hon. George Cadle Price visiting the country side; one of a kind.
This is a picture of my grand-uncle Elias Crawford (3rd from the left) with the Rt. Hon. George Cadle Price in
sometime in the late 1960’s. Back Landing was a village in the Orange Walk District inhabited mostly by the Crawford and Rhaburn families. In the late 1960’s most of the people abandoned the village for Back Landing Village Carmelita Village near by, and in the Cayo District. Esparanza Village
My grand uncle died when I was about 8 years old and I remember walking from
via the New River Pine Ridge with my parents and other relatives to attend the funeral. When we arrived he was already dressed and was laid out on his bed waiting for the coffin to be finished. My dad took me to the room to see him and being a little child, I got to the room door and seeing from his waist down, I became very scared and bolted for outside, crying. All I could remember was seeing his feet in white socks. Crooked Tree Village
A few weeks ago I received this picture from one of the Crawford’s in
and I must say, that this is the first time I’m seeing the face of Uncle Elias Crawford. And looking at it, I can see a strong resemblance to my father, Winston Crawford. Esparanza Village, Belize
