I am trying to find any pictures or information on my father Joseph C Crowder from DeFuniak Springs, FL. He was born in 1932 and died in 1992.

Are you referring to this "James" C Crowder?

And IF SO, I couldn't find an obit for him, but found obits for 2 of his sisters and a son that died at age 28......and some articles from 1963 where he got busted for moonshine whiskey/operating a still.

Yes, that is him. I do not know why I put James. I thought I corrected that. Now I can not even find it to correct it. Thank you for the info. I would love to find the newspaper articles you are talking about. I am also trying to find any information on what happened to the man that murdered him, Timothy Harrison. I come from a criminal background and am interested in knowing if he served time. I know he was indicted as I found those articles.

He was murdered?! OMG - so sorry!

Joyce Crowder Davis, Pensacola News Journal, Nov 25, 1968.

Mildred Crowder, same paper, May 4, 1988.

His father's 1964 obit, same paper, Dec 19.

His son's obit, same paper, Aug 19, 1988.

Strange I can't find any articles on his being murdered; did it happen in FL?

Thank you for the info. Were you able to pull the links up on the bootlegging/still info?

Maybe this link will pull up for you. It happened in Gaskin, not Gaskins, just up the road from Defuniak Springs.
It was in the NW Florida Daily News.

You're welcome.

I got the obits from newspapers dot com; moonshine articles from there also. Nothing in these articles mentions Gaskins, just that they were busted. All are from the Pensacola News Journal.

Second article dated Jan 11, 1963.

Fifth article dated Jan 11 also.

Sixth article, dated May 23, I assume is about Jeff J Crowder.

Oh I see the date now - he was killed in Gaskins? Nothing in Pensacola papers about that.....

Not the town of Gaskins. I think it is just a little community named Gaskin that is North of Defuniak.

Correct - Gaskin is close to the FL/AL border in Walton County, Gaskins is in Calhoun County; neither seems to rate as a "town" per se.

BTW - I never really found anything on that Tim Harrison (article-wise) you mentioned earlier. If he was/is in a FL prison, you ought to be able to find out due to FL Sunshine Laws.
