  2. In 1858 in Greene Co IN, Mansfield Crow, about 25 years of age (born about 1833), shot and killed Arthur H. Neill. Arthur was my great-great uncle, brother to my ancestor Daniel N. Neill. Crow, immediately after killing Arthur fled the scene; he was arrested shortly thereafter in Kentucky and returned to Indiana for trial. Census records indicate that he was born in KY. Mansfield was convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison. He was pardoned after 1860 as he is found in the 1860 census in prison. Any knowledge of how this Mansfield Crow might fit into the Mansfield Crow and family outlined above?

    • I don’t believe the Mansfield Crow you speak of fits into this particular family. I have three Mansfield Crow’s in my database – the first born about 1770, his son, Mansfield, born about 1802, and his son, Mansfield, born about 1838 – father, son and grandson. The younger Mansfield is my gr-gr-grandfather. He is listed in the 1860 census in Washington County, Kentucky, so that eliminates him. There could be other Mansfield’s through brothers in the earlier lines. This family of Crow’s came from Garrard County, Kentucky, and Virginia before that. Hope this helps!

Any thoughts?
