My grand-mother, Anna Virginia Durgin married Julian P. Crosby, Sr. (grand-father).My father, Julian P. Crosby, Jr. was born in 1920.I am named after Charles Rolland Durgin, her brother, so I think something happened to him that deserved to be remembered, hence, my name. Hope this fills in some blanks for some people.
