Patricia Yaw compiled a great deal of research on the Crowder name for her book, The Harness Makers, first Crowders in America. Her research indicates that the Crowders came from the same general area of England during the years 1668 to 1700 as they worked on the ships which came to and from America. She notes that Crowder is a corruption of the surname Carruthers.

The book lists John Wagnon Crowder as a wagon maker of 1785
