Here is another Crusan family that probably settled first in SW OH before
moving on to Ripley Co IN. Benjamin was a Rev War vet. I know nothing
more on the family, because they are not my line, just a connection.
I have asked Ripley Co IN historians if they know of any German
Baptist/Brethren churches in the area. They aren't aware of any.
