    Email from J.C. Crenshaw

    I would Like to start out by saying I had the opportunity to speak directly with this man. And he is down to earth good ppl. He sent me an email and gave me permission to post it here. His goal was just to clear up any confusion that might still be lingering about the passing of the late James Ernest Crenshaw. Below is the email. Any questions can be directed to me.

    There have been postings on, and other american pit bull web sites, about the passing of James Crenshaw. The James Edward Crenshaw obit posted is not the James Crenshaw that had the book MY LIFE AND TIMES WITH THE AMERICAN PIT BULL. The post did not indicate that, just clarifying as some posters indicated they may have thought so. The James Crenshaw in the posted obit would be the one known as Edward(or Ed) and shows on page 109 of the book

    MY LIFE AND TIMES WITH THE AMERICAN PIT BULL. No disrespect to Ed Crenshaw, just clarification. James Crenshaw, writer of the book, did pass away shortly after Ed Crenshaw. When reading the enclosed obit of James E. Crenshaw, Jr., do not confuse his brother Edward with the Ed Crenshaw of Florida, whose obituary is posted on forum.

    James daughter Rene passed away on June 10, 2010 and was buried that weekend. She is buried near Buford, Ga.. On the Monday after her funeral, on the way back to Tennessee, James slipped into a coma and passed away a couple of days later. He is buried on a hilltop near Pickens, SC.
