I've "rescued" two old photographs belonging to the CROSBY Family. The
first is a photograph of Horace & Adda CROSBY taken in the early 1900's with
no studio or location identified. The couple appears to be in their 60's or
70's at the time the photograph was taken. The second photograph is
identified as Hannah BALLARD CROSBY wife of Frank W. CROSBY. This
photograph was taken at the Clara Ensminger Studio in Toledo, Iowa, likely
sometime in the 1890's or early 1900's as well with Hannah appearing to be
in her 70's at the time.
Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information
regarding the family:
Horace Sidney CROSBY was b. 1841 in Royal Oaks, MI to parents Henry Sibley
CROSBY (b. 24 Jul 1788 in Stillwater, NY) and Sarah Ann CAPRON (b. 7 Sep

including, Francis William; Amos Leander; Dewitt Clinton; Mary Louisa;
Newton Franklin; Corinthia Minerva; Caroline Frances; Robert Dale Owen;

born between 1823 and 1847. This was Henry's 2nd marriage, his first
marriage was to Lydia Joanna WILKIE with whom he had 4 children including,
William Wilkie; Cornelia Ann; Henry Willard; and Wilke Darrow CROSBY born
between 1815 and 1822.

and Nellie Capron CROSBY all born in Decatur, OH and Toledo, IA between 1850
and 1861. Francis died 22 Dec 1909 and Hannah died in Washington DC on 30
