' Born James Albert Crow on J,mc 11, 1813, in Howard, Mo., he grew up In the difficult days of (tic South's reconstruction and endured many hardships. His later years as a peace officer in this quiet Mississippi Covmtv village contrasted sharply with the turbulent days of "new ground" farming, logging and cotton gin operations. When Jim Crow Was still a young man, steam-driven presses turned out a bale of cotton at the rate of about one an hour, if everything went well. At the height of his career. Jim Crow owned and farmed several hundred acres of the finest farm land on Big Lake Island. When he retired from the soil he devoted nearly a decade to enforcing the law here.
