Notes for Charles Edgar "Charley" Crowder:
Uncle Charley was a professional hobo.  The family never knew of him ever being married.  He would appear in Kirksville from time to time for a visit -- usually until the family grew impatient of his unwillingness to work and his impositions on them.  His absences were usually lengthy and he would return with tales of vast wanderings all over the world.  He died in Nebraska during his last "outing" and I have not been able to determine his burial site as of this date -- March 7, 1999.  History seems to have shown that Charley and Will had the same wandering blood in their veins.  When I was about 15 years old and working at my first job in Merlo's Grocery in Kirksville, Charley told me that one day he would take me on a journey with him -- but it never happened, thank God.
--- Richard C. Vincent, son of Ethel Ada Crowder, daughter of Will Crowder.
