    • "Dear All, This is an article I found last summer in the Stephens Co. History Book in the Breckenridge library in Stephens Co., Texas about my gg-grandparents, one of whose sons was Paul Revere Crowley who wrote a genealogy of our family. It is Paul Revere Crowley's descendents I am looking for but am interested in all that the listserve discusses. The Josiah Allen Crowley in this article is the son of Allen Crowley and Eliza Towers, son of James and Dorcus Smith Crowley, son of Benjamin and Sarah Strong Crowley.

      Crowley, Josiah Allen (Joe) and Virginia Annie McLEMORE

      Josiah Allen (Joe) Crowley came to Texas in 1867. He did not settle down until his marriage to Virginia Annie McLemore of Sulphur Springs, Texas in 1874. He was the son of Allen and Eliza (Towers) Crowley, and was born in 1848 in Calhoun County in Mississippi.

      Three children were born to the couple while they famrmed in Sulphur Springs, and from there they moved to Palo Pinto County, where the next two children were born. In 1884, the family moved to Caddo, where the next three arrived. In 1890, they moved to the Necessity community, where the two youngest children were born. For the approximately 30 years they lived in the community, they were active members of the Mouuntain Vallley Missionary Baptist Church.

      After their children were grown and married, Joe and Annie Crowley moved to the lower Rio Grande Valley, and farmed there from 1919 until she died in Weslaco in 1925. He died there in 1939. Both are buried in the Necessity Cemetery.

      Their children were: ANNIE BERTHA CROWLEY (1875-1944) married ADDIE F. LANGFORD of Necessity; MARY ETTA CROWLEY (1878-1945) married to THOMAS F. LANGFORD of Necessity; JOE PERRY CROWLEY (1879-1946) married BESSIE ALLEN CHALK of Post; LOUIS MILTON CROWLEY (1881- ) married HATTIE ANDREWS OF Necessity; PAUL REVERE CROWLEY (1883-) married Annie Ruth MCKASTLE of Durant, Ok.; JOHN W. CROWLEY (1885-1936) married BULA EDWARDS of Necessity; NANNIE CROWLEY (1888-1915) buried Necessity; ROXIE ANNA CROWLEY (1889-1915) buried Necessity; JAMES ALLEN CROWLEY (1890-) married BULA CAREY OF CADDO ; DELLA BELLE CROWLEY (1892-).

      Both MILTON CROWLEY and JIM CROWLEY lived their entire lives in Stephens County. Submitted by Helen Hart Luckett"

      Sincerely, Flynn Fuller (son of Otto and Roxie Lee Crowley Fuller - daughter of John William Ive and > Beulah Belle Edwards Crowley - son of Josiah Allen and Virginia Annie McLEMORE Crowley in the article).
