Sheppard Crump & Elizabeth Adam Crump - 1913 to 1975 - Meadow Farm - Glen Allen, VA
Sheppard Crump, grandson of John & Virginia, acquired Meadow Farm in 1913. When deployed with the Richmond Light Infantry Blues, Sheppard corresponded with family, particulary his mother, Mary, about the status of the farm. Sheppard moved to Meadow Farm after he returned from WWI in 1919. He remained in the military, rising to the rank of Major General and becoming the Adjutant General of the State of VA. Although significantly scaled down from previous generations, Sheppard and his wife, Elizabeth, maintained the farm operation. The Crumps focused on orchards, gardens, and raising some livestock and poultry.
