GEORGE CROSSON, Farmer; P.O. Pleasant Plains; born near the village of Rossburg, this township, August, 1826; he grew up amid the rural scenes of the county, attended the common schools as opportunity afforded; he was married in October, 1860, to Hannah Spevel, a native of this township, born Oct. 1, 1841. They have two children – Jane, born March 13, 1861, married to Walter Jones; and William born March 5, 1862. Mr. Crosson spent the early portion of his life in the far West, to which he went in the year 1852; he remained in California for about six years, visiting at different times Washington Territory and British Columbia; returning to the States in 1869, he began farming. This he soon abandoned to again return to the West, being this time selected by a company to visit Colorado, to inspect the mining districts of that country, and then returned to the States. In 1878, he revisited Colorado and discovered the silver mine near the Denver & South Park Railroad; he continued to mine until 1880, when he again returned to the States; he owns large mining interests yet in the West, which promise rich developments; he owns a good farm of 128 acres of land, and is a member of F. & A. M., No. 135, Butlerville, Ohio.
