The following letter was written by "G. D. Crow", father of Richard and A.B. Crow after the death of his two sons in Knobel, Arkansas. Declares His Boys Were Murdered. Lafe, Ark., July 12, 1915 To the Editor: I read an article in last week's Soliphone about the death of the Crow brothers that is misleading and partly untrue. I am the father of the Crow boys and am prompted to write this and ask you to publish it. The oldest son, A.B. Crow, would have been thirty years of age next September. The younger son, Richard, was seventeen years old on November 9, 1914. The elder brother lived at Sellmeyer and had three children. Richard lived here with his parents near Lafe. Richard had gone to spend July 4 with his brother, and they went to Knobel to get some groceries and a jug of whisky. The whisky belonged to four people. I don't believe they would have opened the jug until the other parties were present. The jug was broken in a sack with some bread. They were either not drinking or were not asleep. The time was too short for them to have reached the sleeping stage of drunkenness. One report indicates there was an eye witness to the tragdey (sp)and that the engineer on the train did see them and stopped, or almost stopped, the train within a few feet of them, and while they were making efforts to get off the track he pulled the throttle open and struck them instantly. They had no chance to escape, if this is true, and I believe it is. The engineer could not help knowing he had killed them, and did not have humanity enough to stop. It is my opinion it was a willful, cold-blooded murder, and that the engineer should suffer for it to the extent of the law. Railroad men should be made to respect human life, as well as other people. I have the above report of an eye witness from a reliable source and I think it is true. Yours truly, G.D. Crow.

A few minutes after sharing https://www.ancientfaces.com/photo/russell-crow/1333008 Cheryl D. found the following article: Asleep on Track; Two men killed Crow Brothers Meet Horrible Death Near Knoble Late Last Saturday Night. Two men named Crow, one thirty years of age and the other eighteen, were literally cut to pieces by the northbound Iron Mountain passenger train two miles south of Knobel about eleven forty-five Saturday night. The men, who were brothers, were asleep on the track. It is said the engineer on the passenger train did not see them and knew nothing of having killed the men until his train reached Knobel. The faithful dog, belonging to the elder Crow, was also killed, and a jug of whisky from which the brothers had evidently taken too frequent libations, was smashed by the train. Cal Broadway of Jonesboro, claim agent for the Iron Mountain, spent yesterday in the vicinity of the tragedy gathering the facts. It is understood the men resided at Sellmeyer where the elder Crow worked a small farm. The younger brother resided with him. They spent much of their time hunting for the market. It is said the brothers went to Knobel Saturday night and got a jug of whisky they had ordered from Poplar Blugg. The supposition is they drank freely from the jug on their return home, and that they became drowsy from the effects of the intoxicants and lay down on the track to sleep. The dog and the jug were evidently close to the men when the train passed over them. The elder Crow was married and leaves a wife and six children.

Photograph by Barrie Lynn Bryant of Elliott Dean sitting on the grounds of Columbia County Courthouse in May 1993. Bryant made this photograph during the Magnolia Blossom Festival unbeknownst of Dean while Dean was actually waiting for Bryant to arrive the festival that day from Little Rock. Bryant and Dean became acquainted in 1990 when Bryant made his landmark photograph of Dean playing his fiddle on the courthouse steps during the Blossom Festival that year. Bryant's 1990 photograph of Dean won first prize in the Arkansas Times photography contest which launched Bryant's sporadic editorial career. Bryant is currently a professional artist living in Kirby, Wyoming and his work can be seen on Instagram @BarrieLynnBryant.

A photo of Columbus Edward Smith and his children with Minerva (Pool) Smith. Minerva was milking a cow in 1906 at her farm in the Packsaddle community in Scott County, AR. The cow was easily scared and was skittish. Minerva climbed into the loft to throw down some hay to busy the spooked cow. She evidently lost her footing and fell into the stall where the cow was tied. She was kicked repeatedly. The cow tore up the barn, stomping the milk bucket almost unrecognizable. She made her way into the house but never regained true consciousness and died of a brain hemorrhage two weeks later at the age of 24.

Russell Crow was last seen leaving home (Arkansas) in 1915 with a jug of whiskey. His remains and those of his older brother, Brandt, were found near the railroad tracks, in pieces. Sad end for a boy Admin Update 8/27/2020: A few moments after sharing this photo Cheryl found the following 1915 article which we believe documents the death of the Crow Brothers. Please note his name was Richard and not Russell. https://www.ancientfaces.com/photo/newspaper-article-about-the-crow-brothers-death-by/1347867
