St. Joseph County

By Judge William H. Cross

These were kind words, thankfully received by two boys who had never been much from home and knew nothing of pioneer life. Soon after this Mr. Rawson left Tecumseh and was lost to us; but in 1854 a daughter of mine was teaching a district school in Mendon, St. Joseph county, and there she met Luther Rawson, who, hearing the name of Cross, inquired of her where she was from, and found by the answers that she was a daughter of one of the Cross boys of Tecumseh. I at that time being in California, did not see him to acknowledge my obligations to him, and never afterward met him; but this last winter (1877-8), I, as judge of probate, closed up the estate of my kind friend, and then told his daughter, the executrix and residuary legatee of his will, the obligations her father had placed me under more than fifty years before.
