Even though the census before 1850 only listed the head of the household by name, and the rest of the family members by sex & age, you can often use that information along with comparing the names of neighbors between each census schedule to infer the correct household for prior years.
You may wish to search Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.org for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
We suggest that you search the Indiana Births and Christenings, 1773-1933 FamilySearch index and/or request a record search from the County Clerk for the Indiana county in which the Crowders resided. We also suggest that you search the FamilySearch indexes for North Carolina Births, 1800-2000 and North Carolina Marriages, 1759-1979 and/or request a record search from the North Carolina State Archives. Also, please review the FamilySearch Research wikis for North Carolina Genealogy and Indiana, United States Genealogy.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
