Excerpt from History of Hamilton County, Iowa, Vol. 2

In 1907 he took up the work of compiling the Roster History and Records of Iowa Soldiers. Over four years he was engaged in this great work and spent nearly all his time in the office of the adju tant general of Iowa at Des Moines, in order to have ready access to the military records of the state. 'the work has been published in six large volumes and constitutes a complete compendium of the mili tary history of Iowa from the time of its admission to the union in 1846. An immense amount of laborious research and investigation which might well have tested the strength of a younger man was in~ volved in the preparation of this work. Since its completion Colonel Crosley has been compelled to retire from active life on account of impaired health.

This sketch is intended to deal only with the important events in the life of its subject without attempting to enter into detail. If asked what was the most important event of his life, Colonel Crosley would promptly reply, My marriage. Few men have been blessed with so happy a domestic life. While on veteran furlough with his regiment on April 16, 1864, he was united in marriage to Miss Edna M. Ris don, at the home of her parents, in Hopkinton, St. Lawrence county, New York. Four children were born to this union: George R., Charles C., Charlotte E., and Varick C. The second son, Charles C., died when nearing his tenth birthday, but his mother and other chil dren are living to comfort and bless Colonel Crosley in the declining years of his life.
