Glyndon Harry Crocker Jr.

"It may only be hearsay, but it has been hinted that "Happy" Crocker first rode into Amherst on horseback, and that ever since that memorable day he has advocated turning Walker Hall into a stable, or the football field into a horse show ring. Glyn has three big interests in life and all of them are horses. He has, however, made the best of the horse famine in Amherst, and instead of returning to Cortland has easily shifted his interests to his acquaintances in Smith and Mount Holyoke. These acquaintances acclaim him as a gentleman at all times. His only mistake socially was to compare his date to a horse, but being experienced he escaped all kicks. Those unfortunate sufferers who are so unlucky as to grace the early morning hours have no doubt seen his tan Chevrolet as it speeds to class each morning, for Glyn has now been suffering from a broken leg for two years. And although a horse gave it to him, he still would change his car for a horse. "Crock" will always be remembered as a hard worker, a good student, a loyal supporter of Amherst, and most of all a lover of thoroughbred horses. He has convinced those around him of the pleasure and value of association with a thoroughbred."
He married Florence Lucille Ashley on 27 June 1936 at Cortland, Cortland, New York.2,3 Glyndon Harry Crocker Jr was the executor of Glyndon Harry Crocker Sr.'s estate on 2 August 1945 at Cortland, Cortland, New York; Cortland.4 Glyndon Harry Crocker Jr was the best man at the wedding of Tracy Hollis Ashley Jr. and Mary Elizabeth Johns on 2 August 1947 at Mayville, New York; Episcopal.5 Glyndon was divorced from Florence Lucille Ashley circa 1949 at Cortland, Cortland, New York.

Dedication to
Florence Lucille Crocker
by the graduating class of 1963
Cortland High School

"Although the high school years are ripe with exciting experiences, new knowledge, and warm friendships, they are also years of turmoil, confusion, doubt and disillusionment. Made uncertain and bewildered by new and different situations, we need the guidance of one more experienced than ourselves. Since the spring of 1953 we students have had the understanding help of such a person. With skill, perseverance, and a deep sense of responsibility, this Cortland High School administrator has demonstrated a constant willingness to serve others. Her warm good humor, combined with her strong ability and indomitable spirit have responded to our persistent need. Through her work she has given new definition to the words devotion and love. Humbly, we the Class of 1963 offer our thanks as proudly we dedicate this 1963 CO-HI-AN to you, Mrs. Lucille Crocker."

Harry Ashley

M, b. 5 February 1812
     He was a carpenter.
      The Historical Ledger of Harry Ashley, Upper Lisle, Broome County, NY; July 4th, 1886
     
     
      I was born February 5th 1812 in the town of Lisle Broome Co. New York at the home of my father and mother in the farm that he selected for a residence in the year 1805 adjoining my grandfather Obadiah Dickinson now occupied by Wm. Dorchester.
      I pass over the events of my childhood as I do not recollect much until the death of my grandfather in Sept. 1816 and in Feb. 6th 1819 my mother died of consumption. My grandmother died in June 1813 but I don't remember it. My father and mother were married in November 1806. My sister Eliza was born the 24th day of July 1807. My brother Perry was born Nov. 26th 1813. Thus you see our home was made desolate by the death of my mother. I was too young to realize our loss as my father did. My future mother worked there to do the work before and after my mother died and they were married the ninth of May following. Her name was Sally Page and she was a good mother to me. My sister Polly named after my mother was born March 27th 1820. In the fall of 1820 my father traded the farm for a small place up on the creek road now occupied by P. Beardsley (with Capt. Rose) and in the spring of 1821 made ready to build a home. He took land to raise corn as his new farm was not cleared. I was now in my tenth year and my father thought I was a smart boy so he got Capt. Bogg (Bagg?) to make me an ax and I helped to ____ the timber for the house. We didn't get the house ready to move in until cold weather. My brother Rodney was born Dec. 26, 1821 before we moved and we moved in Feb. without a chimney and it was pretty tough to endure the cold and smoke with a babe six weeks old.
     
      1822
     
     
      My father used [to] go down the river as a pilot in the spring and this spring he engaged to go and before he went he marked off some logs for Perry and I to cut for logging while he was gone. This took about two weeks. We cut the logs and he made a bee and logged it and planted an acre of corn. We kept on clearing but it was heavy timbered and slow clearing as we had no team. I worked for the neighbors and mother took in weaving so we scrubbed along the best we could. Provisions were cheap but we had no money to buy with. I worked at home most of the time clearing and working out by the day until I was 18 years old that year. I worked for Eben Green chopping both side of the creek on land now owned by A. Hodges then worked for Jason [?] Hawes.
      Through haying and after that worked for David Smith and sons clearing in the east hill and graveling dam and worked for David Smith through the winter of 1830 and 31. Went down the river in the spring with father for James Irvine [Levine?]. My brother Perry about this time went to learn the blacksmith trade with John Mead at Lisle.
     
      1831
     
     
      After I got back from down the river I worked for John Baker to learn the carpenter's trade. My father had my wages 8 dollars a month for one year after that I was to have my time. I worked the year out and went down the river again with my father for Richard Clark and gave my father my wages as he owed the man we went for.
     
     
      The Universalist Church was built in 1830 by Wm. Lewis and dedicated in June 1831. I worked on the farm most of the time for L. Baker until Sept. then we commenced to build the house for Frederick Lampman 1832 now owned by L. ? Elliott.
      After working for Mr. Baker to about the first of January he hired me to Samuel Francis he having joiner work to do indoors. I helped to frame the Baptist Church at Triangle 1832. There we built a house for Abram Taft half a mile above Triangle Village. There were two stages every day. One went east and one west. Sometime in June cholera broke out in N.Y. and there was a great stampede from there to the western part of the state. The road was lined with teams going to their friends in the western part of the state. When we finished Mr. Taft's house we commenced to build one for Reuben Chase.
      I don't know who the occupant is now. It is the fifth house east of Joseph Selph.
      After I got through for Mr. T. I went to Lisle and done some work for John Thompson and had to go to Ithica to get my pay. I stayed at home through the winter and helped my father make half bushes and boxes.
     
     
      In the spring of 1833 I hired to Elijah (Stutch?) for a month finished a house on the farm now known as the Lin Smith place. Then commenced to build a house for Wm. Smith now owned by Orrin Smith.
      Isaac Smith and his wife were there then. We also commenced a house for Wm. Lee before haying hewed timber and built a dam for Dexter Meacham about the middle of July he agreed to frame a barn for Harry Crittenton.
      He cut his arm and was set to boss the framing which I did and came out all right. The other hands were James Campbell, Horace Hand, Gid Halbert and Levi Ingersoll.
     
     
      In the latter part of the season did the work on the brick house for Oliver Wheaton now owned by Moses Rogers.
      Helped by father through the winter again [1834] toward spring. I went with Russell Smith and cut timber for the house now occupied by John Smith, Fidelia and their mother. In the spring went and hewed it and expected to work for Hatch again but he chose to hire other help. About this time Mr. Hawes proposed to hire me to build a house for them so I commenced to work and framed the house and got it all right. He also hired Orrin Dickinson paying each a dollar a day. I had agreed to help Solomon Page build a house before working for Hawes.
      John Baker framed his house so when the frame was up I went there to work. Dickinson working for Hawes but he didn't get along to suit Hawes and he turned him off. After getting Page's house along and finishing the lower part I went back to Hawes and worked for him. Then I worked through the season for the two men and made a good summer work. Stayed to fathers till spring working as usual. The latter part of winter made lath for David Bronson's house.
     
      1835
     
     
      Went down the river for I. White got back and worked building a house for Brannon.
      Framed a barn for Hiram Standish. Standish living with his second wife on the place now owned by A. Hodges and occupied by Oscar Black.
     
     
      In Dec. this year there was a great fire in N. York and some genius invented a planing machine and since that time they have gradually come into use. I worked on the house now owned by Amos Stickney for his father house 2 or 3 weeks. John O. Taft worked with me.
     
      1836
     
     
      There was a great exhibition sometime in Feb. or March. It was an awful cold and snowy winter. I stayed to Mr. Hawes most of the time through the winter and was married March 22nd and went house- keeping April 21st in a house standing on the side of the road where the horse barn of the Ranson Page place now occupied by Bill Adams.
      I worked building some for Hawes and built a house for my cousin Orrin Dickinson and raised some corn and fatted a cow. There came a frost in August kidded the corn and some spring wheat. The 5th of October the snow fell two feet deep and broke down timber to heat all and the 12th there came another 18" deep.

      In Jan. 1855 I bought the farm I now own of L. Wicker and L. G. Purdy and turned my house and lot in part payment.
     
     
      We moved the 9th of March a very cold day. I bought the stock with the farm consisting of ten cows, a pair of stags, a pair of colts coming this year old and some young stock a quantity of grain and what hay there was left after wintering the stock through. I lost two cows by their neglect in not caring for them. One of the colts was sick all summer and the old house was full of bedbugs which made my wife and daughter a good deal of trouble and we were all pretty near discouraged and I bargained the place away to Willie Baules but he failed to fulfill the contract and I was glad he didn't.
     
      1856
     
     
      (Mary born May 1) I worked for the Rouse in the meantime building their horse barn and dooryard fence. In the spring of 1857 I engaged to build the school house at Upper Lisle which I did according to contract working the farm. Jael Turner worked for me. The boys were not old enough to do men's work. I determined to build a house for myself. I got in the lumber in the winter and commenced in the spring of 1858 to build a house. I was in debt to get the farm and didn't feel much like going to building but something must be done. I razed the frame July 13th, 1858. I made out to get the roof and siding on before cold weather. Brother Allen and sister Adeline Spaulding came from Mich. to visit me and I took them to Afton to visit friends there. I worked at the house what I could through the winter. The boys and I had the farm work to do so my work on the house went slow.
     
      1859
     
     
      Ida was born March 1st, 1859 in the old house. I made out to finish the house ready to plaster and got John Thursten to do the work the last of October, 1859 Hanging doors and other work kept us from moving until late in Dec. Grandma Smith came to see us in the new house once. She was sick and I took her home.
     
      1860
     
     
      She was sick more or less all winter and died March 26th, aged nearly 79. The Presidential elections came that year and ABRAHAM LINCOLN was elected. The Democrats and fire eaters of the south kicked up a fuss about it, formed a separate government and stole all of the military stores of the U.S. government and declared war in 1861. President Lincoln called for 75,000 men and from that time till 1865 war raged throughout the land. Abram Rogers died the 7th of Mar. 1860.
     
     
      I worked the farm more through this year. Levelled off the dooryard and moved the old house away and began to make things look better. In Sept. I went to Cortland and helped the Stickney boys build a bridge across the Onondoga river near the Poor house. Mar. Abram Rogers died while I was up there. The Presidential election was a very warm one and resulted in favor of the Republicans. When the Southern states began to secede it looked as if the government was going to destruction. James Bucanon the Democratic President was awed into silence by the fire eaters. But I am not writing a history o the war but when Abe Lincoln called for 75,000 men in 1861 it set everyone on tip toe and such a firing of guns, no fourth of July ever beat that. I forgot to say that I bought my first mowing machine in 1860, and was trying it west of the house when George Adams came to take the census. In the spring of 61 Uncle Asa Rogers died aged 97. Mason Rogers died near the same time. I built the horse barn the same year. I set out the orchard back of the house in the spring of 59.
     
      1862
     
     
      The soldiers 1861 was glad to get home but when the President asked for more men there were plenty of them that wanted to go. Perry was among the numbers. Poor boy he had fits but for all that they took him. He was gone about three months and came home discharged for disability. In Jan. 1864 there was a call for more men and he went again and was gone 16 months. I didn't work at my trade any more but kept on improving my farm and building additions to my barns and (illeg.) built quite an addition to the house.
     
     
      In 1866 I cleared off and ploughed 12 acres on the flat next to the Leuhr farm. 1867 logged up the remainder 10 acres planted corn and sowed oats on the part plowed last year. Went west visiting after harvest burned [illegible]. After I came back and plowed it. In April 1868 Mariah went west and stayed through the summer and was married out there. Stayed through the winter. They went to Sterling Whiteside Co. Gestie was born there in September. She came home in Nov. and mother came with her. She stayed to our house through the winter. Will came in 1869. I hired Perry and Pete Carter in 1869. Chopped and peeled a lot of bark and built the lower barn. In 1870 hired Wil Waterman for 25 dollars a month for 8 months. Cleared off 4 acres and sowed it to wheat and chopped and peeled another piece. Nance Park drowned the 6th of May. Mother went home in Sept. Maria stayed with us through the summer. Morgan went to [illegible] to visit his sister Bet. By in June Elvin [illegible] was born. I bought a new platform rocker.
     
      1871
     
     
      I raised 100 bushels of wheat. May 18th [illegible] hung. Fire broke out on my back lot and ran over Burget's wood lot. I hired Gene Gutches and turned him off after he worked a while. He didn't answer the contract hired by the day through haying.
