RE: Solomon Lyons
Sorry, but I do not have details of Solomon's life other than he was a farmer. I'm a bit confused as to how you'd have a picture of Josephine with your father when Josephine died in 1936 and you said your father was born in the 1940"s. Maybe we're not from the same lineage. :) Dianne

RE: Nelson Crowder
This is what I have about Nelson Crowder which you may have as well. It also states who found the info as well as other info:

Robert (Bob) Fansler says: He was a bound orphan in eastern Tenn. to a Robert Shields. He ran away to join the army during the War of 1812. He went with Jackson to Florida during the Seminole wars. He mustered out after serving frontier duty in northern Missouri.

Other Information: Had dark hair, eyes and complexion. Residence: 1850, Miller, Gentry, Missouri1

Robert (Bob) Fansler has: He ran off to join the army under Jackson. He was in the same company with a Green Crowder. I believe he stayed in the army till 1819. He mustered out in northwest MO.

His brother may be Greene Crowder, who also enlisted in the army and served on the same unit that Nelson did. There hasn't been any proof to this relationship yet though.

Kevin Vap has: They are on the 1850 census in Gentry Co MO and are buried at Fairview Cem in Gentry Co MO. I visited the cemetery last summer & Nelson had a crude headstone, there wasn't one for Susan.(near Pattonsburg, MO)

There were also two people that were living with them on the Census--James Warren, male, 29, farmer, born in Tenn. and (Margaret?) Warren, male, 3 or 5 years old, born in Missouri.

Did he have a sister named Lavinia, who was born in 1892 in North Carolina?

Nelson Crowder was orphaned at the age of 6 (?) in 1801, Blount County, Tennessee. A family with the last name of Shields took him in at age 6.

On August 29, 1814, Nelson Crowder is found in Winchester, Franklin County, Tennessee. He joined Wiley Martin's 3rd Regiment of Tennessee Riflemen on that date. He was off to fight in what was to become known as the War of 1812. He was stationed at Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania; Prairie Dechine, Wisconsin; Council Bluffs, Iowa and Northern Missouri. He was out of the service with an honorable discharge at Weston, Missouri on August 18, 1819. For his service in the war, he received a 160 acre bounty land patent #23108, in Chariton, Howard County, Missouri Territory.

Two months later on Oct 3 1819, Nelson Crowder married the daughter of Frederick and Catherine Cogdill, Miss Susannah Cogdill. They were married for 52 years, one month and 15 days when Nelson died at the age of 77 on November 18, 1871. His bride would follow him three years later.

Nelson and Susannah were the parents of 13 children:
Anna S. Crowder (Gibson)Oct 25 1820
Rachel Judith Crowder (Nichols)Jan 7 1821
Mary "Polly" Crowder (July 22 1823
Malinda Ann Crowder (Warren)Feb 10 1825
Permelia Ann Crowder (Teel)July 7 1827
Nancy Minnis Crowder May 7 1829
Margaret Jane Crowder Oct 5 1830
Rebecca Crowder 1833
Mahala Ann Crowder 1834
Susan Crowder 1835
Wiley Martin Crowder Mar 25 1838

Nelson and Susannah had at least 32 grandchildren
