HISTORIC PATHWAYS: Gunned down on the train at Taylorsville station

-A A +A
By Tom Watson

Chester and Susan Crawford of Normandy in northeast Spencer County worked hard in 1905 to support the family. Both were 26 and were rearing two girls: 4-year-old Betsy and 2-year-old Ruby. Chester worked a night shift on the farms of Shelby Countian Harry Weisenger.
It was on such a night July 6, 1905, that Chester’s work kept him away from home.
Susan and the girls went to bed, not expecting Chester to come home. Nor did Susan expect the horror of what happened at 11 p.m.
