Norcross Stage

Posted: 17 Dec 2008 2:16PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Norcross, Smallwood
Our gggrandfather's sister, Mary Smallwood, married one of the colorful Norcross brothers. Pointing to his occupation on a census page as "staging" led my nephews to want to learn more. Their interest was really piqued when we read the story in Jersey Genesis by Henry Charlton Beck about how they got around the competition. (pp. 297-299) I thought I would just write to encourage the society to include the story in any record of the Norcross Stage because it is their stories that "flesh out" these ancestors for today's youth. Of course, if we could find a photo showing one of their "eliptic spring coaches", they would be impressed! Good luck in your search for Norcross information. Judith A. Enello
