HAMILTON CROWDER (deceased). The gentleman whose name appears at the head
of this sketch was born December 27, 1829, in Jessamine County, Ky., where
he was reared to manhood. He resided for some time in Indiana, and
located at Decatur, Ill. He served as a musician in the Federal Army
during the late war, and died May 2, 1871. On the 19th of November, 1862,
he was united in marriage with Miss Phoebe E. Caldwell of Boyle County
(born December 30, 1835), and to them were born John, Joseph and Mary. Mrs.
Crowder's father was John Caldwell, of Boyle County, who was born in 1790;
was a soldier in the war of 1812 and died August 4, 1873. He married Mary,
daughter of David and Isabella (Caldwell) Knox, of Boyle County (born July
3, 1795, died September 6, 1879), and the result of their union were
Isabella D. (Durham), George L., James A., Martha A. (Thompson), Mary J.
(Lyons), David K., Thomas J., Samuel K.N., William A. and Phoebe E.
(Crowder). John was the son of David Caldwell, a native of Virginia, and
was a pioneer in Kentucky. He married Phoebe Mann, and their offspring
were Josiah, Thomas, Francis, Sally, David, James, Dicy (McAfee), William,
Phoebe (Adams), John, Cary A., Betsey (Caldwell), Jackson and Samuel. Mrs.
Crowder now owns and resides on a part of her father's old homestead, and
also owns her grandfather Knox's homestead. David Knox, her grandfather,
was born October 17, 1760, near Philadelphia, Penn. He married Isabella
Caldwell (born in Charlotte County, Va., November 17, 1771), and their
union resulted in the birth of William, George, Mary (Caldwell), Andrew,
John, Robert, Davis, James, Samuel, Benjamin F. and David R. (See sketches
