Adam Joshua Crosby and his wife
This is my Great Great Grandfather...
Adam Joshua Crosby and his wife, my G. G. Grandmother 'Miss Lucy'
Here is the church he and his brother and family built in legacy to a brother who died in Richmond.. Peter.
Paul survived with Adam.
We placed this stone in a memorial service in 1999. It was my Daddy's last wish that a stone be placed beside his brother's Adam and Paul. Peter succumbed (sp) to pneumonia in Richmond and is buried in Oakwood. The Moultrie SCV camp officiated.
with Peter beside him...apparantly Adam and his one brother Paul, lived near each other, and they felt awful bad that Peter was killed. Their Daddy.. Paul senior lived closer to Adel, and there is a a whole slew of the boys buried over there...many of them were in different regiments.
(there were a 'few' Pauls...) Paul # 3 is buried here behind the church in the Crosby section.
This graveyard has many Cooper's , Crosby's and Culpepper's
This was my Great Aunt Lucille Murphy's story she submitted ~ Owen Crosby
