Elizabeth Ann CrowderI wish I knew who wrote this originally. It is a wonderful article about Elizabeth Crowder.

 

Elizabeth Ann was born near Memphis, Tennessee in 1837 to John W. and Elizabeth.  Elizabeth died while her daughter was very young.  I am not sure if Elizabeth and her sister, Isabella, are full or half sisters, but the rest of the Crowder children are the offspring of her stepmother, Lucy Jane.  Elizabeth married Robert Silas White July 26, 1860.  He was a Presbyterian singing teacher, according to the family notes.  He was drafted into the 34th MS Infantry, Co. B (Tippah Rebels) on May 8, 1862 and also served with the 2nd Regiment, Co. C (Davidson's) MS Infantry.  Aunt Betty White Thomas wrote "While in one of the battles, he was wounded.  A little Testament saved his life. A bullet hit the testament, cut ever leaf in it.  The testament caused the bullet to glance."  He died about 1868 as a result of that wound.

I receive a lot of requests for information, and I am happy to respond to them all. Sometimes the requests are more than I can answer in a few minutes of email reply. While I will continue to respond to all requests as I can get to them, and I will continue to answer where I can do so quickly, I have decided to offer more thorough responses as a service.

My mother recalls Maurice Fletcher, Jr., after whom Fletcher Field is named in or near Clarksdale, Ms. He was married to Lillie, who people referred to as Aunt Lillie.

I found Lillie Eileen Dickey, daughter of William E. Dickey, son of James Wilder Dickey, but I don't know where these Dickey relatives fit in with the ones I've identified already. I know there is a relation somewhere!

They started out in South Carolina, migrated to Tennessee, and ultimately settled in Mississippi.

lazarus webb headstoneLazarus Webb and his wife Nancy Creek came to Illinois in 1812 with his brother Eli. At first they settled in Saline County, but soon changed to the north edge of Webb's Prairie, Franklin County.  There with the country full of wild animals and Indians, a dense forest on one side and prairie grass from 8 to 10 feet high on the other side, Lazarus built the first house ever built in the prairie and gave the prairie its name. He never saw fit to change his home any more but lived there until 1832 when he died. Lazarus was a farmer, a surveyor, and a Justice of the Peace. He and wife were members of the Regular Baptist church at Middle Fork. Both were ardent Christians and would go to church sometimes as far as Ten Mile Church which wa about twelve miles east of their home and both walk and carry a child, going one day and returning the next day. Sometimes they would both ride the same horse with a child on their laps.

Patricia Yaw compiled a great deal of research on the Crowder name for her book, The Harness Makers, first Crowders in America. Her research indicates that the Crowders came from the same general area of England during the years 1668 to 1700 as they worked on the ships which came to and from America. She notes that Crowder is a corruption of the surname Carruthers.

The book lists John Wagnon Crowder as a wagon maker of 1785
