J.A. Crow, 85 Years Old, Dies Suddenly
Death Occurs While Sitting In Chair at His Daughter's Home
James A. Crow, 85 years old, one of the early settlers of this county, died suddenly yesterday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. O.T. Waddill, 315 North Main street. His death was due to heart trouble.
The deceased was born in Tennessee on Jan. 20, 1840, and came to this county with his parents when he was fourteen years old. At that time Kirksville was a small village containing only a few houses and it is said that there was only one house between their farm, in the northern part of the county, and this city. Mr. Crow was a carpenter by trade and he assisted in the erection of a large number of houses here.
Mr. Crow served the county as treasurer one term, being one of the few Democrats to be elected to that office.
He was married to Margaret Goddard in 1862 and nine children were born to them. She died in 1905, and in 1910 he was married to Mrs. Addie Patterson, who passed away three years ago.
There are six children living and they are as follows: Mrs. Ella Jordan of Council Bluffs, Iowa; R.A. Crow, of Ft. Dodge, Iowa; Mrs. H.W. Sykes of Mason City, Iowa; Mrs. Samuel Britt, of Greentop; Mrs. Jas. Burton, of near Kirksville, and Mrs. O.T. Waddill, of this city.
He is also survived by four brothers, Joseph, of Kinsley, Kans.; William and Thomas of Greentop, and Mannings Crow of this city. He has twenty-three grand children and sixteen great-grandchildren.
The funeral services will be held at Ft. Madison cemetery, Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
