This web page is designed for anyone related to, or
researching, the surname Crossnoe and wanting to know more about their
ancestors. It should be noted that the surname may also be spelled as "CROSSNO", "CROSNO", or "CROSNOE". The spelling of the last name
may vary even within the same family, from person to person, or from year to
year, especially the further back you go in time. It is my belief that all
"Crossnoe's", regardless of the spelling, are related. I am
attempting to complete a family tree with all the descendants of our common
ancestor. It would be very appreciated it you would share your own history with
me. Attached is a form that can be used. Simply click on the the word
"submit" at the top of the page.

Little is known for sure
about the origins of the Crossnoe surname. The earliest known Crossnoe is "GEORGE CROSSNORE". It is believed by most
researchers that he emigrated to this country in the mid to late 1700's, about
the time of the American Revolution, from the German/Polish/Russian area of
If you are searching for
your own family tree within my webpage, it is recommended that you go to the Index. This index lists individuals alphabetically
by surname, and then alphabetically by given name within that surname group.
Click on your ancestor, and it will take you directly to that person's family
group sheet. You may then travel up or down your family line by clicking on the
appropriate person within that line. Please note that information on living
individuals is omitted except for name and relationship. Also, individuals I
have not yet been able to "link" to my family tree are not listed. If
you cannot find your family, find a non-working link, have a correction or an
addition, please contact me.
One final point....this is very much a work-in-progress. Some of this information is not verified yet, but has been generously contributed by other researchers or family members. This webpage is subject to change based on new information, and will be periodically updated. As always, verifying for yourself any information found in this site is recommended.
GENETIC TESTING - Y DNA TESTS
Time marches on, and science presents opportunities never before
available. It is now possible to have Y
chromosome typing done to determine genetic relationships. This is NOT the same as paternity testing and
is very easy to do; you need only order a testing kit, use the enclosed swabs
to wipe the inside of your cheek, and send the kit back. The recommended test is for males only, as
the Y chromosome is passed only from fathers to sons. Women would need to have a male family member
do the test, for example a father, brother, grandfather, or uncle. I won’t kid you… this test isn’t
free or even cheap, but is within the price range of anyone serious about their
family tree. Prices vary based on which
test kit you order. Some are very
basic, others very detailed. Why do it?
This testing can prove your relationship to others… the closer the
match, the closer you are related to the person that you are compared to. Hopefully, it will also help us to finally cross
Every effort has been made to make this information as accurate as possible; however no source is perfect, except possibly from the individual himself or herself. In addition, all information is subject to the interpretation of the researcher. I would appreciate knowing of any errors found in this web page, and will NOT be offended! This is still very much a "work-in-progress".
attempted to document the sources of all my information, even duplicate or
conflicting information. These sources are available upon request, except in
instances where the source was an individual. In that case, I will contact the
individual and attempt to either get his consent to give out his name and how
to contact him, or will ask him to contact you directly. In rare instances
sources may be missing. For this I apologize. Early in my research I did not
document my sources since I never expected to share my work with others. I have
attempted to retrace my research wherever possible and include these sources,
but have not yet succeeded in every instance.
Anyone who would be willing to volunteer their time to
help this project is very, very welcome. What can you do? Submit your own
information......Look for original information from the indexes I
provide.....Search your own county's courthouse for information.....Watch your
local newspapers for obituaries.....Let me know of other Crossnoe
researchers.....any help would be appreciated.
If you are a genealogist, the following are several websites that I've found very useful. I use them over and over again. I hope that you find them useful too!
