  • George William Crosley was my great great uncle. He was under 21 when he looked to sign up for service. His mother didn't want him to go and would not sign the papers but his father did sign them. My grandmother and mother often speak of George. Such a loss of life, so sad. Thank you for your bravery. Rest In Peace.
