Jesse remarried after Celia Dover passed away (abt 1850), to Nancy Ann Brown and had two other children, Susan & Tom Cross. 

Celia's father was Francis
Johnson
Dover, a Revolutionary War soldier, b. 28 June 1760, Haw River, near Guilford, Orange CO NC.; d. 13 Dec 1851, probably Habersham CO, GA.  He married 1) Mary Ann " Polly" Posey, 1786 in York District SC,  b. abt 1768, probably SC, d. between 1817/1820. She is the mother of Celia Dover Cross, 2) Mary Mullinax.
Several of the Dover siblings married Cross siblings.

This information is in more detail on Sharon Sukiennik's page:  Dover-Cross

During a conversation with cousins, and comparing family records, including oral histories, several cousins recalled the stories of how the Cross men would not fight in the Civil War. They would hide out in the thicket and when the inquiring soldiers or anyone else would leave, the women would hang out a certain rag which would be the signal it was safe to come in. My grandmother told of how the women would leave baskets of food at the edge of the woods for the men.

This may explain why only Henry and William Stephen came to Texas in 1860. In GA, it is said the Cross men did fight in the war so perhaps these two came here hoping to get away from the fight.

...................3   *Seley Adeline Cross (F) b: July 12, 1878  
...................3   *Solis A Cross (M) b: 1879  
*There is some dispute as to whether Seley & Solis are the same child or separate children. Some family members think they are the same so I am posting this here out of respect for their beliefs. When we know  for sure which is which, then I will correct this line.  In the Rootsweb transcribed Hardin Co. TX  1880 Census for this family, there is listed "Solis A. Cross,  W M 1 Yr".  In the Ancestry.com image for this page (Year: 1880; Census Place:  , Hardin, Texas; Roll: T9_1308; Family History Film: 1255308; Page: 428.4000; Enumeration District: 30;), there is a "Selie A. Cross,  W M 1 Yr" BUT there is an "X" through the name.  Perhaps there is only the one child and these are the same children...but which name is correct? "Adeline" is generally accepted as a female name but in both cases, this child is recorded as "M". It is accepted by the family that there was a Seley (named for Celia Dover) and the child was a female. Solis is a male. Part of the problem stems from Angelina telling the 1910 census taker that she had bore 11 children and only 4 were still living, however, we know that census takers some times received their informatiom from other family members who were present or that they didn't always get the information correct.  One thing is without a doubt, this is another mystery in the Cross line.

U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules Index


Oct. 1860 Hardin Co. TX - George Cross, age 2 Cause of death: Croup
Nov. 1860 Hardin Co. TX - James  Cross, age 4 Cause of death: Croup

Dorah Angelina Rodgers is the dau of Joseph & Elizabeth Rodgers/Rogers. They first appear in the 1860 Hardin Census as "Rodgers" and then in the 1870 Census as "Rogers". Joseph is thought to have been born 1811. There has been a suggestion that Joseph's father was Hugh Rodgers of Flint River, Madison Co, MS, who is listed in the 1810 Territorial Census.

  Information on Henry & Martha Parker Cross was contributed by Carla Boehm. 
Daughter of James W Parker, who founded  Old Fort Parker. Her 1st cousin was Cynthia Ann Parker who was kidnapped by the Comanche Indians. The website for Old Fort Parker has a flash intro.

Read a brief history of Elder John Parker in a Sons of the American Revolution handout at the Parker Family Reunion, 2006.  http://www.parkerreunion.com/sar/sar.htm

Some time after the death of Henry Cross, Martha Cross, now widowed with 2 children, remarried to a Crenshaw and had a daughter Martha Jane, born about 1863-4 and a son Daniel, born about 1866.

I have not been able to find a copy of this book but it should prove interesting for Dover-Cross descendants, as one chapter is about Francis J. Dover.
