Transcription by Phillip D. Crow. This letter was written by Charles (Charlie) Alfred Crow, my
grandfather, to his brother, Henry Milton Crow:

Foster, Oklahoma, September 6, 1911
Mr. H.M. Crow

chance we have ever had to make money If you have anything you can sell for cash there You can buy anything
you want on time here. let me hear from you soon

C.A. Crow


1. Charles (Charlie) Alfred and Henry Milton Crow are sons of Alfred Milton Crow and Saleta Ann Francis Holcomb,
my Great Grandparents

2. Pauls Valley is not far from Foster, OK, in Garvin County. That is where my father, Ernest Milton
Crow, was born on December 9, 1905

Comment: On the 1860 census for Hall Co., GA., there is an A.M. Crow, age 20, male, in the household
with J. Hansard and family (pg 208, 413 dist., family #1340 on census) as an apprentice
blacksmith. Assuming this was our Alfred M. Crow (the age is correct), he went on to be a
boot and shoe maker (cobbler), as was his father, Johnathan W. Crow, and my G.G.Grandfather.
Could this apprenticeship training have influenced Charles Alfred Crow and Henry Milton Crow
to consider this venture?
