Obituary published in The Winnfield News-American, February 27, 1931
Joe C. Crews [sic Crew], pioneer citizen of Ward Five died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. W. Brady in Montgomery Saturday, February 13th and funeral services were held the following Sunday at the family cemetery near Wheeling.
Mr. Crew, seventy-seven years of age at the time of his death, was a retired planter who during his earlier years was active in the civic and political life of his community and parish. He served on the Winn Parish Police Jury, Winn Parish Democratic Executive Committee, Winn Parish School Board, and as a Winn Parish deputy sheriff, and in each place rendered valuable service to his people and community. He was among those men who induced the first railroad to come to Winn Parish and his public life was characterized by many acts looking toward the progress of the whole section.
In his dealings with neighbors and friends he was a wise counsellor and his advice was sought by many on every kind of question, and for this reason many will cherish the name of "Uncle Joe."
He is survived by four children, two daughters, Mrs. J. W. Brady of Montgomery, Mrs. W. C. Brown of Montrose, F. W. and J. H. Crew of Crews, the community named for "Uncle Joe."
