One of seven children born to Nehemiah "Fiddler" Lee of Atkinson, ME and his third wife, Louise Kate Stone, Helen eloped with her Bradford, ME, next-door neighbor, Frank William Crosby, in 1913, when she was twenty and he was thirty. Together they had nine children, raising them in the home he built on Maple Street in East Millinocket, ME.
I remember Grammie Crosby standing at her kitchen stove, grey hair flowing down her back, frying donuts in honor of her families' visits. --Elizabeth Lee Crosby Simpson
