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.
