Don I have done some research on Crawford and I have been in touch with some of his descendants and it appears that Crawford Burns may have been to old to have been a brother to William or a son of Elijah's but he may have been a brother. I do know that Crawford had been in N.C. prior to ILL. as I had found him there on the census but I can'y recall where off the top of my head.
There is still alot that is unknown about this Burns line but I do believe that we are talking about the same line. There was also another William Burns that had migrated from Bedford Co. Tenn. that was a son of John Burns who was also said to have been from S.C. so the two William's in Franklin Co. ILL. may have been cousins .
I am still going over some of my notes on the Burns and I will either post them here or email directly to you anything I find that might be of use to you.
