Excerpt from a letter written by Emmet Miller to his sister, Maggie Clark Owsley on 22 February 1942:

Mother's parents

Thomas Marshal Crain. Came to Missouri from Kentucky. Was a slave owner, and was fairly wealthy, from what I have heard, he was worth about sixty thousand dollars. He owned a store, a grist mill, and a good number of horses and cattle. He was robbed in the time of the Civil War by Generals Freemont and Lane. One of them drove off fifty head of fat cattle, the other took three teams of mules, harnessed them with new harness from the store, hitched them to three new wagons and loaded the wagons with such supplies as could be used by the army, and allowed the soldiers to rob the store of what they wanted, some of them taking bolts of [cloth and] dry goods, get on their horses and ride in a run and watch the new cloth unroll and drag in the dirt, or flutter in the air as they rode in a run.

Grandfather Crain died about the year 1879 or 80. He was near 70 years old at the time of his death. I never knew Grandmother Crain. She and Grandfather Crain both died and were buried in Dallas County, Missouri
