Searching for John Landall (or R.)Crosby b. 1825 in NH m. Ruth N.(?) born VT. Had children: Arthur, John, Edwin S., Mabel E., Fred L., Zellda, Herbert W. (our great grandfather) Anthony, and Frank Crosby all born in WI. John had a brother Phineas b. in Dracutt MA abt. 1820, m. Abba (10 yrs. his sr.), had dau. Abba m. F. Hartshouse b. abt 1840 in VT. John and Phineas (Phinos)'s father should be PHINEHAS Crosby b. 1788 in Dracut MA, m. Eunice (?) of PA or NY, b. abt 1795. All of the above supported by census data from 1920-1820, or from Dracut, MA Town Clerk/vital records.

Need someone who has supporting info on their father PHINEHAS Crosby. My brick wall is proof of John L. Crosby being the son of PHINEHAS Crosby. Phinehas is the son of Jonathan Crosby and his father Johnathan Crosby, both Rev. War Patriots at Lexington/Concord and Bunker Hill.

I will be happy to help anyone with this extensive Crosby family back ot their origins in America in 1635.
Thank you, Donna Crosby
