Samuel D. Crump was born to Benjamin Franklin Crump and Alantha P. Young Crump. He was married to Nellie M. Cox. They had one daughter, Elsie. He was a prominent attorney during the Cripple Creek and Victor Labor Troubles from 1903-1905, and an attorney in Denver for many years.


Many of the older Waseca county residents who knew Judge Crump in the eighties will be interested in the following account of his death which appeared in last Thursday's Denver Colo., News. The paper was received by Judge R. R. Brown of this city.
"Samuel D. Crump, prominent Denver attorney and pioneer Colorado lawyer, died yesterday in St. Luke's hospital after an operation performed Tuesday. He was 73 years but until his recent illness was active in legal and social affairs. Mr. Crump was a leader in legal activities in the state for 45 years. He was also interested in mining and was an authority on mining law.
"He was born in Wisconsin and moved to Minnesota at an early age. His parents were pioneers in the Northwest. Mr. Crump attended Minnesota Normal College and the University of Minnesota, being graduated from the latter. He was admitted to the Minnesota bar in 1881 and a year later was elected probate judge of Waseca county, Minnesota. He held that position for six years. He moved to Gunison[sic], Colo., in 1887 and later to Cripple Creek. Mr. Crump was a special prosecutor during the labor troubles of 1903-05 in Cripple Creek and Victor.
"Since 1905 Mr. Crump had practiced law in Denver. He was active in legal fraternities and was a member of the Denver Athletic Club. His home was at 1148 Vine St. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Nellie M. Crump."
