CROSS ROBERT J. (Deceased), whose portrait 
appears in this work was born in Newburg, 
Orange Co., N. Y., on the first day of October 
1803 and during his years of minority resided 
mostly in Bethel, Sullivan Co., of that State.
When about 22 years of age, he, with a younger 
brother, decided to emigrate, to the then far 
West, going to Detroit, purchased a farm in 
Tecumseh, Lenawa Co., Mich., where he 
remained until 1830. He and his brother then 
sold out and removed to Coldwater, Mich., 
where they remained until June 1835, when he 
came to his present residence in Winnebago 
Co., Illinois, where he continually resided until 
his death. The next year he married Miss 
Hannah Benedict, of Monroe Co., N. Y., who still 
survives him. At the time Mr. Cross came to 
Roscoe, no land was in market and he was 
forced to purchase a squatter's right to his 
present farm, and as some of the land in 
Wisconsin was subject to entry in the Green Bay 
land district, he selected some along the Rock 
river from Janesville to Beloit, and on foot and 
alone he made his way to Green Bay, through 
an unbroken wilderness and bought his land in 
Wisconsin. From thence via the  lakes he 
returned to Detroit and Coldwater, and in the fall 
of that year became the occupant of the present 
homestead. Mr. Cross was essentially a 
pioneer- a man of strong frame of body, of 
unyielding tenacity for the right; even in boyhood 
the champion of the feeble, or those he deemed 
oppressed.
He was a stalwart oak, on whom could ever 
lean the feeble and the frail- as Minister E. B. 
Washburne declared, a "Noble Old Roman." A 
farmer; all his life, and yet a firm, reliable 
business man, as a life constantly occupied in 
public affairs proved him to be. Yet he was 
ever as tender in heart as a little child, and his 
larger sympathy was even larger than his 
frame or his purse; and truly was it said of him 
"those who knew him best, loved him most."
During his residence of 36 years in this County, 
Mr. Cross was closely and intimately identified 
with its development, politically, socially and 
materially, never being, backward in anything 
that would aid in its moral or religious 
advancement. A warm friend of education, he 
always lent a willing hand to aid in building 
school houses and establishing schools.
Mr. Cross assisted at the organization of the 
county being a member of the election board 
for the first election ever held in it, August 
1836. He was elected by the County 
Commissioners in 1836, at their first meeting, 
County Treasurer, which position he held for 
three years. In 1846, he was elected by the 
Whigs as a Representative to the General 
assembly for this county and in 1847 by them 
as the colleague of Selden M. Church, a 
delegate to revise the Constitution of the State. 
In 1862 he was an independent candidate for 
the position of delegate to the Convention to 
again revise the Constitution, but was defeated 
by a small plurality. In 1869 he was 
unanimously nominated by the Republicans for 
member of the Convention that formed our 
present constitution, and was elected without 
opposition. Later he was nominated by the 
Republicans and elected one of the three 
members from Winnebago and Boone 
Counties to the General Assembly. In all these 
legislative bodies he has borne an honorable 
and conspicuous part.
In addition to this, Mr. Cross was Chairman of 
the Board of Supervisors several years, 
occupying that position at the time of his death.
He was also township School Fund Trustee for 
over thirty consecutive years, during which 
time the township never suffered loss from the 
funds being loaned on insufficient securities, as 
was the case in most townships.
He had five children, John, Margaret, Louisa, 
William Henry, Marie Antoinette (deceased), 
and Lewis. The estimation in which he was 
held was manifest by delegations of the early 
settlers of' the county, members of the Board of 
Supervisors and from the State Legislature, in 
attendance at his funeral.
