In 2005 my first cousin had his very complete paternal family history published.
What a wonderful job he did.
He has given me permission to use his book for Sepia Saturday.
Thomas Clinton Crume
01 Aug 1886-30 Oct. 1970
This is the first photo I choose to present due to it's appropriateness.
Now in the book it is, of course black and white, but my cousin told me it was sepia initially.
This very proper and gentlemanly looking fellow was married to my cousin's great aunt Martha Baynum
My cousin's name is Riedel.
I just love the neatness of the entire layout.
Thomas was ordained in the Gospel Ministry at Mill Creek Baptist Church in Botland, Kentucky. From the years of 1908 to 1910 he was the Pastor of Mill Creek Baptist Church. He then became Pastor of several other churches in Kentucky over the years. When Thomas became a Baptist Evangelist he moved his family back to Florence, Ky. where he had once been Pastor. He traveled as a Baptist Evangelist to all of the (48) continental States in the US also including Canada, Cuba and several South American Countries. He retired and spent the rest of his life operating Crume's Nursery in Nelson County, Kentucky.
Next week I will talk about Thomas's wife
Mamie Riedel Crume.
