Biographical Note

Omega Crow Mathews was born in 1892 near Paron, Saline County, Arkansas, to Matthew Henderson Crow and Ellen Elizabeth Jackson Crow. She was the eldest of eight children raised on the Crows' 160-acre farm. In the winter of 1904, Matthew Crow died of pneumonia, and Ellen Crow remarried a Mr. Weaver and then she died in 1908 following a miscarriage.

Omega later married George Alexander Mathews; they had eight children. In 1953, she wrote the memoir "As I Remember It" about her childhood on the Crow farm. She passed the written memoir on to her daughter, June Mathews Stuckey, who typed and edited it. Omega Crow Mathews died in 1994. Her memoir passed from June Stuckey to acquaintance Margaret Jones Bolsterli, who donated it to Special Collections.
