|Drusilla Dickerson Crossen|
|Death: ||Mar. 26, 1872|
The WPA made an error when transcribing Drusilla's tombstone. They had her as aged 33Y 1M 26D which would calculate to 1839 as her birth year, not very likely as she would have only been 14 when she got married and 15 when her first child was born. All censuses (1850 thru 1870) have her at ages which calculate to abt. 1833 as her birth year. There is also conflicting information as to where she was born; Athens, OH. or Somerset, PA. Again all census records indicate PA. although she did live in Athens many of those years.
Children of John Crossen and Drusilla Dickerson (Dickinson) Crossen were in order of birth:
Elizabeth J. "Lizzie"
The first child born in Milford, Somerset, Pa was Elijah, the earlier children were all born in Athens, Ohio
Norman Albert was born 6 Mar 1872 and Drusilla dies 20 days later on 26 Mar 1872 probably from complications due to child birth.
