Crawford, Emma 27 Dec 1876 - 3 Dec 1915
W/O B.L. Crawford

In the "old" cemetery of Zion Hill Baptist in Union County in Northeast Mississippi is a gravehouse which is the final resting place of Emma Crawford. Emma married Mr. B.L. Crawford and they had two children. She became mentally ill and was admitted to an institution in Whitfield, Mississippi near Jackson. She became homesick for her family, especially her children, and escaped and began to make her way home. She was walking the railroad tracks to New Albany when she was struck by a train and killed. Her body was mangled beyond recognition but she was identified by the pictures still clutched in her hands—the pictures of her two children.
