Myrtie was the daughter of Isaiah and Anna (nee Palmer) Brewer. Myrtie was a school teacher in a one room school house when she was young. She hitched a horse and wagon up and rode it to the school house. She married James Reed Crawford and they had nine children: Dixie Dee, Maxine, Nell, Kathleen, George K., James R. Jr., Allen, Charles and Curtis B. who died in infancy.
Cause of Death: Complications from pneumonia and heart failure.
Burial: Myrtie was cremated and her ashes were scattered off the coast of Virginia Beach. Those were her wishes, only she wanted them to be scattered off the coast of California by her son, Charles, a Captain on an oil boat. At the time he was off the coast of Alaska and for some reason could not do it and could not get home. So her son, George, took her ashes to Virginia Beach, chartered a boat and scattered them out to sea.
