We don't have to look any farther than the Maryland flag to see that there is a definite tie between the Crossland and the Calvert families.I have found some new information and hope maybe that someone sees this and it triggers more conversation or thought along this line.I copied the following from a post on the Calvert forum:
Isaac Calvert 1735-1829, Morgan Co OH, Greene Co PA Dean Mills (View posts) Posted: 7 Feb 2003 7:40PM GMT Classification: Query Surnames: Calvert, Dye, Bullock,I am searching for information on Isaac Calvert bn 1735 and died after March 29, 1829 in Morgan Co OH. He married Frances Bullock abt 1769. Frances was born Nov 28, 1756 and is buried at Eagle Village, Boone Co IN. I descend from their daughter Sarah Hannah Calvert bn Sept. 7, 1786 in Greene Co PA, who married George Dye on Jan 7, 1807 in Greene Co PA and died on July 8, 1845 in Zionsville, IN and is also buried at Eagle Village, Boone Co. IN.
We have some indication Isaac may have fought in the Battle of Brandywine Creek in the PA militia and might be the son or brother of John Calvert who settled in Upper Bald Eagle Township in what is now Centre County, PA.
Any help would be appreciated.Reply
Luke Garrison Crossland was born around 1800 in Maryland or possibly in PA.In the 1820"s Luke purchased 81 acres of land in Morgan County Ohio near Deaverstown from the federal government.Is it just a coincedence that this Issac Calvert and other Calverts were in Morgan County at the same time frame?It is a possibility, but I highly doubt that.
I am attempting to discover the parentage of this Luke Garrison Crossland.Any information would be greatly appreciated.
