Walter M. Crowe lived in:
Walter Crowe was probably born in either Washington County, where his parents lived in 1860, or in Owen County, where his parents lived in 1870. He was a traveling musician who worked in Indiana and adjacent states. It’s possible he lived in the Chicago area about 1900, although he is not found there in census records. In 1910, he was in Gibson County, Indiana. Efforts to locate him in the 1920 census were not successful. In 1930 he was living in Monroe County with his brother, Benjamin.
This is not contributor’s ancestor. Efforts to locate the date and place of Walter’s first marriage to Gertrude Haines/Haynes, also a musician, were not successful. According to newspapers from Huntington, Indiana, Gertrude sued Walter for divorce in May 1894, and that divorce was granted in June 1894. On June 30, 1904, in Gibson County, Walter married his second wife, Martha A. (Thorn) Cosby Loumiller.
