CRAWFORD's linked to JACKSON & MOODY fam. in AL too

I've just been doing some more research on the Jackson/Crawford/Moody etc. family and found that some of the CRAWFORD's from the James and Jane/Janet nee Hutchinson CRAWFORD family (the ones that Elizabeth nee Hutchinson JACKSON (sister of Jane) supposedly lived with after her husband Andrew Jackson, Sr. died, moved to GREENE Co., AL too!! At least I think the town of Linden, AL was or is in Greene Co. AL.
This could be another reason why we find these branches of our extended Ydna families located there.
They were all such gypsies in those days that if some family members thought moving to someplace might yield a better life for them, often times several members of the clans would move to those places.
Perhaps Greene Co., AL or that area (near the border of MS) was offering good land deals or whatever to entice folks to come there. No doubt being that much further south offered them longer harvest seasons from their crops too.
Hope this is somewhat helpful and that I have the info correct.
