Ebenezer Crosby is my 4th Great Grand Uncle, son of Ebenezer Crosby and Elizabeth Robinson.  He was born in 1772 and died on 13 December 1863 in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.  He married Sarah Richardson, the daughter of Reuben Richardson.  He was the brother of my 4th great grandmother, Rebecca Crosby (b. 1789), who married Comfort Haley (1787 - 1874).  Ebenezer lived to be 91 years old, which was quite a feat in those times!

Ebenezer Crosby, senior was an early settler at Chebogue.  He arrived in Nova Scotia with his parents, Jonathan Crosby and Hannah Hamblin, with the six families that sailed up the coast from Connecticut.  The Crosby family originally lived on Cape Cod, and they are Mayflower descendants.  You can see a blog post with a photo of Jonathan and Hannah Crosby's tombstone in the Chebogue cemetery HERE.
