Help Navigating This Website

The presentations on this website are the sole work of the author, Larry Allen Crosby, unless otherwise stated.  These presentations are meant to accurately depict family history, while at the same time making the various stories dramatic and interesting.

My work is based on the best available information.  Source quality begins with the Family Tree, which is based on hard proven data.  The next most accurate sources are the work done by credible researchers, whether they be professional or family.

The next most valuable sources are interviews with those with first-hand knowledge and personal visitations to places of interest.

If you come across something which you think might be in error, or you have additional information, please let me know.

My initial efforts are devoted to the Elkanah Young Crosby (1797-1869) branch of the family. He is buried in the Cherry Valley Cemetery in Ashtabula County, Ohio.  However, I am open to working with anyone who has material and a story to tell about your branch of the family.

Please use the Contact form on the menu to advise me of your comments.

There are several features to this website which may need explanation.

  • Most pages have an audio button at the lower left hand corner of the page.  You can choose to play the 2 minute music clip at any time that you are viewing a page.  This is optional and for your enjoyment.
  • Many pages have a gallery of photos.  This gallery is usually at the bottom of the page, so make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the screen, or you may miss them.  Click on any picture to see a larger view of that picture.  Many of the old photos are very small pictures, and therefore have no larger view.
  • Each picture will have two symbols in the upper right hand corner.  The first button is a pause/play button.  The play button will activate a timed slide show, which will cycle thru the entire gallery at a set pace.  The other symbol is an x, which will exit the slide show.
  • There are many links on this website, which are designated by highlighted text.  Click on any highlighted text to open a new window with the selected material.
