Birth: May 21, 1833
Death: Sep. 29, 1901

Wife of Daniel Gettus Crum who died in the CSA during the Civil War.

Spelling of her name on stone has Rabecca.

They left Bartow on March 6, 1862 and marched thru the woods to Gainsville to be mustered in as Company E, 7th Florida Regiment. They subscribed to the same conviction that President Jefferson Davis expressed to the CS Congress and the world: 'We seek no conquest--all we ask is to be left alone.'" Daniel Crum enlisted in the Seventh Florida Infantry, Company E, also known as the "South Florida Bull Dogs". He died of pneumonia three months after his enlistment at Columbus, GA.

Daniel's middle name has been said to be "Gettus." The Florida census of 1850 indicates "G" as his middle initial. However, later records, particularly his civil war military records, show a "J" as the middle initial and the name recorded there is "Jarrott."

There was a Daniel G. Crum listed in both Durrance's Co. of Florida Mounted Volunteers and Sparkman's Independent Co. of Florida Mounted Volunteers during the Seminole War of 1856.
