Harry was born the 5th child (of 12 children) of William Riley Crews and Sarah (Sadie) Ellen Headley. William was a coal minor and so was his son Harry, they both worked in the coal mines around Terre Haute Indiana. Harry also worked for a short time in Wyoming around 1944. Harry married Helen E. Peed on 29 Dec 1934, they had twelve children, four boys and eight girls, one girl died at two weeks of age somewhere in Wyoming where Harry worked in the coal mines. The other eleven children grew to adulthood. Harry died in 1957 leaving Helen to raise her youngest nine children by herself, they were all under the age of 16 at the time. Times were tough and we were poor, but Mama did a great job and always kept Daddy's memory alive for all of us kids. Even though he died when we very young we still miss him to this day and always will.
