The Prairie Grove Herald 21 July 1904
Mr. Adolphus Crawford was instantly killed by lightning yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock, at his home one mile north of Rhea.
Mr. Crawford, with his wife and children were on the back porch of their home, and were in conversation with another gentleman, whose name we have not learned, when in the twinkling of an eye, a fierce bolt of lightning flashed before them, and Mr. Crawford was killed, whether from the lightning striking him or from the shock, we have been unable to learn. None of the other parties on the porch were affected by the lightning.
Adolphus Crawford was about 47 years of age, and was a son of Robert Crawford of near Rhea. He has two brothers and two sisters - Kird and Oscar Crawford of the Indian Territory, Onn Crawford of Rhea, Mrs. R.B. Maxwell of Moffitt, and Mrs. Wm. Medaris, of the Territory. He is survived by his wife and two children. Mrs. Crawford was before marriage a Miss Pearson, sister of our townsman, J.B. Pearson.
Mr. Crawford was a man of sterling character and stood high in the esteem of all who knew him. His sudden and unexpected death in this manner has cast a gloom over the community.
The funeral services were held at his late home at 3 o'clock this afternoon, conducted by Rev. Griffin. The internment will me made in the Crawford graveyard.
