Picture of John Crow

Died - at the poor farm, Thursday, October 8th - John Crow, aged 90 years. The deceased was one of the first settlers of this county.

{Submitter comment: I expect the above article was about my grandmother's [Mary Ethel (Crow) Belangee] grandfather, John Atkinson Crow, b. Aug. 21, 1804 in VA. Migration 1804 VA >1806 Jefferson Co., OH > 1820 Newark Twp., Licking Co., OH>c March 1836 IN>1853 Benton Co., IA.

I suspect he is buried by his wife, Milcah (Belt) Crow in Prairie United Brethren Cemetery in Taylor Twp., Benton Co., IA with no marker. She died in 1860 and he carved her tombstone which has recently been cleaned and reset. The poor house had no cemetery, he was also in and out of the mental health institute that handled Vinton Co. people - I do not know if they had a cemetery.}

Her sister, Margaret, Mrs. Alex Crow, preceded her to the unseen land just one week.

The funeral was held at the Big Grove Presbyterian church Wednesday forenoon, Rev E.H. Avery, officiating, assisted by a quartette from the Presbyterian choir of Vinton.

A husband, three sons and two daughters mourn the loss or an excellant wife and mother. The bereaved family desire to express their appreciation and kindness of many friends who have aided them in the hour of their sorrow and need.

These two sisters who have been called away so near together were sisters of Mrs. Isaac Bergen of Vinton and of Mr Andrew Vorheis of Garrison.
