I have no relation to this family. However my husband and I discovered some old letters written by John Crossland (looks like Crofsland) from Broadford (Fayette Co.) dated late 1876- mid 1877. They are to a Maria Eicher. They aren't in great shape but some of it can be made out. They were found when we tore out old plaster and walls in our house. They have probably been in there for at least a 100 years. Anyone interested in knowing what the letters contain can contact me via email. I'll be happy to pass along what we can make out. Maybe it will help in your search for your family history.
