When I read the obituary about Mr. Crowder I saw some names that sounded familiar to me. My father's mother was Lou Crowder. She lived with her daughter, Martha Jane Pitner Thomas, when she passed away.

I was just wondering if any of your family recognize my grandmother's name.

You may contact me via email if you think we have a kinship.
