Birth: Oct. 16, 1821
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 26, 1867
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

James Augustus Crever died at 10 minutes of 12 o'clock in the night of the 26th of December 1867 (Thursday) at Cincinnati, Ohio. He had been up on the farm in the middle of November and came home quite poorly and on the morning of December 4th he was taken with a violent chill and was confined to his bed for the greater part of the time. He was taken with typhoid fever, but when the fever was checked his old complaint (palpitation of the heart) increased and he lost his mind for the last few days of his life. His speech and hearing were entirely lost for 48 hours previous to his death. He died without a struggle at the age of 46 years, 2 months and 10 days. His remains were interred in the Wesley Burying Ground near Cumminsville on December 29th. This came from an old family bible.

During his short lifetime he was involved in many things. He was an engraver and inventor. He worked for the Columbia Engraving Co. which later became the American Bank Note Company. He held many patents. One of his inventions was the process of putting silk threads in paper money (still used today) to help prevent counterfeiting. He was the Treasurer of Hamilton County, Ohio and in 1853, the editor and proprietor of the Bucyrus Journal. During the Civil War he worked in Washington, D.C. and was a good friend to Stephen Foster.
