"Pop" Crowe (this is what everyone in the family called him) was born on 15 Sep 1899 in Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana [1][2], to Charles C. and Ida Mae (Gray) Crow.[3] His family bounced around in rented homes to Perry County (1900 Census) [4], Spencer County (1910 Census) [5], and Posey County (1920 Census). [6]

On 31 Dec 1917, he traveled roughly 50 miles to Princeton (Gibson County), Indiana, and enlisted in the Army National Guard. [7] He is listed with his family on the 1920 Census at 502 Third Street, Mt. Vernon, Indiana. [8]

He finally put down some roots in Indianapolis (Marion County) in September 1920, when he married Lucile Francis Stiker (1900-1969), [9] daughter of Eugene F. and Jeannette C. (Heerdink) Stiker. They lived at 1637 Raymond Street in Indianapolis on the 1930 Census. [10] Unfortunately, the house has since been demolished, as it appears as a grassy lot on GoogleMaps. They had four children between November 1921 and December 1926, the third being my grandmother (names and other information withheld for privacy).

In 1936, Pop Crowe filled out his SS-5 to receive his social security number. [11] At that time, he was living at 2435 S. State Street, Indianapolis. He was working for Continental Baking Company (Wonder Bread Bakery) at 339 E. Market Street, Indianapolis. Apparently, the bakery building has since made way for a parking lot.

In 1939, he went to work for the Allison Division of General Motors as an engine inspector and retired from there 25 years later in 1964. [12] He passed away on 19 Sep 1971, at the age of 72, from respiratory and cardiac arrest resulting from a cerebral vascular accident (stroke).[13] He also was diabetic. At the time of his death, he lived at 35 W. Pleasant Run Parkway South, Indianapolis. His son, Harold Jr. ("Bud") was the informant on his death certificate, as "Mom" Crowe had predeceased him in 1969.[14] Pop Crowe is buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Indianapolis.[15]
