B.O. Crawford
One of Cassville’s Best Known Citizens Passes Away

Mr. Belton O. Crawford died at his home near Cassville Thursday morning last at 3 o’clock of dropsical effusion of the heart, of which he had been ill only a short time.

Mr. Crawford was one of the best known citizens of Cassville and the county. He always took an interest in public affairs, was a man of strong convictions and maintained a high sense of the right at all times.

He was born in South Carolina, but moved to this county when a boy and settled at the home at which he died.

He was admitted to the bar when a young man and practiced law before the war and at times since the war. He was a judge of the inferior court about the beginning of the war.

His father was a Baptist preacher and he was a devoted Baptist and took great interest in church affairs. He was often prominent in the councils of that great body. He lived a circumspect life, and his duties as a citizen embodied a display of patriotic regard for duty and the best interests of his country.

He leaves a wife and four children. They are J.B. Crawford, Mrs. Sallie McTier and Mike Crawford, of Cassville, and Mrs. Johnnie Gordon, of Gordon county.

The remains were buried at Cassville cemetery Friday, Rev. R.B. Headden conducting the funeral services.
