Crow & Crowe Families of Cherokee County, Georgia

Crow Family History Pages

If you have any information on this family please contact Elba Barnes who
so kindly provided the information below. Elba is the ggranddaughter of Thomas Monroe Crow
and Almedia Mariah Walker married September 21, 1882 in Buchanan, Georgia.



 Attached is the scanned page from the 1882 Crow family Bible that Thomas Monroe Crow gave his bride, Almedia Mariah Walker, probably the Christmas of 1882. They married in September. The "Presentation Page" is torn but you can see that it was given to "A.M. Crow on Christmas 18 __". The date of copyright on the Bible is 1881. I have other pages from the Bible of births of the children, several of whom were born in Carroll County. Several children died, but by that time Thomas and Almedia were living in Courtland, Lawrence County, Alabama. They carried one or two infants back to Carrollton to be buried per the notes in the Bible. Thomas became the "Town Marshall" of Courtland and served in that capacity for 30 years. His obituary states that "All business houses and garages were closed for the funeral." He died in 1929.
