W. J. CROW, of Hollister, California, was born in Franklin county, Missouri, January 21, 1842, son of Joseph and Cassia (Sullivan) Crow, the former of Scotch and the latter of German descent.

Joseph Crow visited California in 1849. After mining in Placer county for a time he returned to Missouri, and still lives in Crawford county, that State.

W. J. Crow came to California in 1862. He first lived on a farm at Gilroy, and later at Mountain View and San Jose. He then came to San Benito county and located on his present place at Cienega. Here he owns 237 acres of tilled land, under fence and good improvement.

Mr. Crow married Angeline Whitton, a native of Napa, California, and has six children: Joseph W., Annie Laura, Angeline, Emma, Warren and Hugh.

Both socially and politically Mr. Crow stands high in San Benito county. He represented his district on the County Board of Supervisors for the term of four years, from 1884 to 1888.
