Morristown Gazette, Wednesday, July 10, 1901:

"JOHN H. CROZIER KILLED.
-----
Shot Down By R. B. Bundren at Condry, Grainger County.
-----
John H. Crozier was shot and killed by R. B. Bundren on Tuesday evening of last week, near Condry, Grainger county. The killing was the result of a lawsuit in which Mr. Crozier was employed against Bundren. Mr. Crozier was a lawyer and has resided in Grainger county for many years, and had an extensive acquaintance in this section, being well known in Morristown. Of recent years he had given a good deal of his attention to the subject of aerial navigation and was the inventor of an air ship which he had exhibited in some of the leading towns, and which he believed would eventually solve the problem of traveling through aerial space. He was a son of the late Col. John H. Crozier, in life a distinguished citizen of Knoxville, and was a man of good mind and intellectual attainments. The remains were taken to Knoxville, where the funeral and burial occurred Thursday afternoon. He was 55 years old and leaves a wife and three children. . . ."
