WILLIAM J. CROW DIES AT HOME IN GREENTOP

Funeral Services Will Be Held at Ft. Madison Monday

William J. Crow, 81 years old, and a resident of this county and Greentop for nearly 80 years, died at his home in Greentop at 6 o'clock last night following an illness of several months.
He was born in Jefferson county, Tenn., Oct 24, 1850, and came with his parents to this county and settled in the Ft. Madison neighborhood when less than two years old. He continued to live on his farm there until about 25 years ago when he and his wife moved to Greentop.
He was married to Donna Rigdon on December 14, 1876, and she survives him. Ther are also four living children, Mrs. Cora E. Clapper, of Decatur, Ill., mrs. H. G. Swanson, of Kirksville, R. H. Crow, of Greentop and E. M. Crow, of Kirksville. There are two brothers, Thomas Crow, of Sublette and Joseph Crow, of Kinsley, Kan.
The funeral and burial services will be held at Ft. Madison church at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon.
Mr. Crow was a member of one of the best known and most prominent families in the county, and the sympathy of a large number of people is extended to the bereaved relatives.
