H, 4th Regiment, transferred to Co. F, 8th Regiment, August 29, 1863, at Convalescent Camp, Nashville, Tennessee, discharged at Chicago, Illinois.  He was the son of Mansfield Crow.
  • Death Notice (April 1932 newspaper)  Mrs. Nancy C. Crow, widow of James M. Crow, died Sunday at the home of her son, Mr. Jacob Crow, near Mitchellsburg.  Mrs. Crow, who was 83 years of age, is survived by six daughters and four sons, Mrs. John Chambers, Mrs. Robert Rogers, Mrs. Richard Hume, Boyle County; Mrs. Lee Riley, McAfee; Mrs. Mack Sullivan, Roseville, Illinois; Mrs. Doris Allen, Mitchellsburg; Henson, Jacob, Ben and Homer Crow; 47 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren, 4 great-great-grandchildren, with two brothers, James and William Riley, who also survive.  The funeral took place Sunday morning in Mercer County at Hopewell Church.  Burial was in the adjoining cemetery.

My ancestor, Mansfield Crow, is a brother to James McKitrick Crow, and was also in the Civil War.  Mansfield married Nancy Jane Coulter, 1855, and had one daughter, Mary Elizabeth Crow – my great-grandmother.  I believe Mansfield died shortly after the war.  Can anyone confirm this?
