CROSE FAMILY MEMORIES Related to the Miller Family Submitted by Don Crose January 2007 I am the son of Ralph and Evelyn Walker Crose and my sister is Louise Crose Kinsella. Our Dad's uncle Elijah (Lige) Crose lived on Main St. in Towanda. Uncle Lige had a daughter, Dolly Robinson. Dolly's daughter Alta married Percy Miller, so we are related to the Miller's. Imo Miller was uncle Lige's granddaughter. Louise was (of course) a great-niece. Uncle Lige told Louise to call him Grandpa too! Imo did not like that; although they were close friends! When Lige died our dad had checked in on him as he often did. Lige said he hadn't felt so good in a long time. Dad went home and about an hour later someone told him to go see his uncle as he was dying. Alta had a brother that had a barber shop on West Washington St. in Bloomington, Illinois. He never came out to Towanda much � to my knowledge. Dolly lived across the street from the Merritts. Caroline Miller found Dolly dead in her rocking chair. Louise and Imo used to eat apple heated on Lige's old stove. A nice memory for Louise!
