Smith Crouch, son of Jacob Crouch and Jane Smith, married Eliza Crouch, daughter of Major John Crouch and Mary Fornelson.
During the Civil War, Smith Crouch, along with his brother in law William Salisbury, and nephew Edward Pugh Chenoweth, and other civilians working on the roads, were taken captive and imprisoned at Fort Delaware by the Union Army, where all 3 died in 1863, before their release could be negotiated.
Smith, his wife Eliza and their family are shown in the 1860 Randolph County, WV Census, his children being John, Jane, Sylvanus, Judith and Rebecca, but are not found listed in Randolph County afterwards.
I know his son Sylvanus had enlisted into the Confederate Army 7 months prior to Smith's death, and was killed in action in Highland County, Va weeks before his father died at Fort Delaware.
Smith's daughter Jane married Thomas Davis.
I can find no information as to what happened to his widow Eliza and other children, John, Rebecca and Judith, if anyone has any information, I would like to hear from you, Thanks, Randy
