Jackson S. Crow

Jackson S. Crow died October 19, 1896, at Mt. Vernon, Faulkner county, Ark., of which he had been a citizen thirty-one years, and a member and deacon of the Baptist church nearly thirty-one years. He died in  the full triumph of faith, after an illness of three weeks. He left a wife, two sons, and three daughters to mourn their loss. I will say to them not to sorrow as those who have no hope, for he will come back with Jesus.  Bro. Crow was born in South Carolina April 15, 1825, moved to Alabama with his father when young; came to Arkansas in 1847, and lived in Union county; thence moved to White; thence to Mt. Vernon in 1866. He embraced Christ early in life and was baptized by his father Eld. Charles Crow. I was his pastor six years. He was a true man, Christian, deacon, husband, and father. God bless his widow and children.
