Footnote: The burial site of Mary (Ball) Washington, the revered mother of General George Washington, attracted great numbers of visitors within a generation after her death. Located on the property of Kenmore, the home of Fielding and Betty (Washington) Lewis, it had been marked by a memorial stone ordered by George Washington within months of her demise. The stone was so ravaged by souvenir hunters that a movement began as early as 1826 to erect a more elaborate monument. Not until the 1890s, however, did two groups, the Mary Washington Monument Association of Fredericksburg and the National Mary Washington Memorial Association, achieve success. Mary Cecil Hall Crosman was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She was a member of the National Mary Washington Memorial Association, issued the number ""239"", as well as being a founding member of the National Society of Patriotic Women of America, issued the Number ""1"" designation, as well as being a member of the Daughters of the Founders and Patriots of America, Pennsylvania Branch, later transferring to the New York Branch. She was also a member of the Society of the Colonial Dames of America, Pennsylvania Branch as of 1901, along with the National Society of United States Daughters of 1812, Pennsylvania Branch, later transferring to the New York Branch. Her lineage is traced to Robert Crosman, through Robert Crosman (1707-1799), The former Robert Crosman was born in England and died in 1692, one of the original proprietors of Dedham, Massachusetts in 1636. He was admitted townsman in 1642 and granted land in 1642, 1644, 1645 and 1652. He was one of the early ""twelve shilling"" purchasers of Taunton, Massachusetts and settled in that town about 1653. He was a skilled mechanic, largely employed in making and repairing arms, and was called the ""drum maker of New England."" In 1644 he became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. Robert Crosman (1707-1799) was a patriot of Taunton, Massachusetts, where he was born and died. Mary Cecil Hall Crosman lineage is also traced as Great Granddaughter of Dr. George Crosman, Great Great Granddaughter of Captain George Crosman and Great Granddaughter of Captain James Gordon Heron. She died in 1905.
