Timothy CROSBY Jr.

Note: Per the 1840 census record, there is a possibility of the birth of another son in 1830. However, that seems somewhat unlikely in view of Hannah's age which should be 51 at that time according to the Putney, VT Town Records.

No further records of Timothy Crosby or of his fate has been found. His wife Hannah is shown with daughter Polly Butts in the 1850 Highland Twp., Oakland County, Michigan census and with son Abel Kittredge Crosby in the 1860 Rose Township, Oakland County, Michigan census.
