[His parents]

Father:  John Chesney Crownover, born March 11, 1799, Union Co., SC, married Nancy Castleman, April 29, 1824, died June 1845, La Grange, Fayette Co., TX

Mother: Nancy Castleman Crownover, born Abt. 1804, Davidson Co., TN, died Apr 1, 1844, La Grange, Fayette Co., TX

[His wife]

Emily Jane Moore Crownover, born May 7, 1842, died June 30, 1934

Note: This is the lady the family referred to as "Palm." She was my mother's grandmother and she lived with Grandma and Grandpa Russll and mother for a number of years until her death in 1934. I've asked mother about the spelling of Palm and that's the way she said it was spelled. I've seen a couple of places in other people's research where it listed her middle name as "Jerusi." Where that name came from, I have no idea. Emily Jane is what mother said her name was and since E.J.'s mother's name was Jane Whistler, it seems logical to me that that would be her name. Anyway, that's the name I'm gonna' use until I see something that convinces me otherwise! You can use whatever name suits your fancy! msw
