    • Michael Crose was born 1765, died June 21, 1819 on his farm located on Hinkston Creek and Long Branch near East Union, Kentucky. His farm was in Bourbon and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky although records are in Bourbon County. Michael married his niece Mary Ross, born 1769 in Hardy County, West Virginia, daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth (Crose) Ross. They were married in 1786.

      They were both members of the German Baptist or Dunkard Church. They both spoke the German language and brought their German Bible with them to Kentucky about 1796.
      They built a church at the forks of Somerset Creek is Nicholas County, which they named East Union, and in which they preached in the German language.

      The Crose family built their home on the south bank of Hinkston Creek, opposite the mouth of Long Branch. The house was still standing in 1977.

      Michael Crose died in 1819 and an administration was taken out on his estate on August 17, 1819. See Book F, page 288, old deed records of Bourbon County. Mary was living with her son-in-law, Covington Utterback, in 1850, aged 81 years, according to United States Census of that date.
