In searching for my Crossfield/ Graves family I came across this item taken from the American Genealogical Society. I thought it might help some Affleck researchers. Check the reference to the three Affleck children along with info on their parents. (IV) Dr. Frederic Solon Crossfield , son of Kendall Gibbs Crossfield , was born at Keene , July 29, 1854 .
