9781330173312: Two Crosby Families (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Two Crosby Families

The object of this book is to give a biographical account of the members of two Crosby families for the purpose of preserving family history, and thinking it might be of interest not only to the survivors written about, but especially to their descendants.

I have done this work at the request of my brothers and sisters, and of my own volition.

Much more could be said of each, and possibly couched in more rhetorical language, but my object has been simply to give a narrative of facts and events in the everyday vernacular.

I have given special attention to our ancestry preceding the arrival of our common ancestor, Simon Crosby, in America in 1635, my information being obtained from the most reliable sources obtainable in this country; and I doubt if more reliable or interesting history of our ancestors can be found among the archives of historic England.

It is a well-known fact that in pursuing heraldry and ancient or family history you are surrounded by myths, and that to begin at some reasonably correct starting point is more satisfactory than delving into uncertainties.

Between our common ancestor, Simon, who was born in 1609, and our grandfather, Oliver Crosby, born in 1769, there are three generations of Crosbys of which much could be written.

Our great-grandfather, Oliver Crosby, born in Billerica, Mass., in 1744, was a Revolutionary soldier.
